Honda’s “Fit for You” Ads Sure Are a Thing All Right

Fit for YouLook: Honda really, really wants you to buy a 2015 Fit if you’re a Gen Y-type. We know that a great many Millennials will  tell you that they’ll, like, buy a car when they can, y’know, afford it, man. But, hey, real talk: you should really buy a Fit when you can. To make sure that you are 100 percent aware that the 2015 Fit is the premiere vehicle of Gen Y, they’ve begun the “Fit for You” campaign, which features comedian Nick Thune and Questlove of The Roots (at least that’s what Honda says, but he’s nowhere to be seen, so maybe he just did the music).

So, how can we be totally certain that “Fit for You” targets Millennials?

Ahem.

Hi. I’m Nick Thune, and I’ve been in some things you might have seen maybe.

So this is how you appeal to Generation Y car buyers, eh? With a pleasant mix of OH MY GOD SO RANDOM and ironic 80s nostalgia that plays like a watered down version of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!? Well, whatever works, we suppose.

Just, hey, please start buying these cars. They’re pretty great and a lot of fun, sure, but mostly we’d like you to start buying them so that we don’t have to endure another too-clever-for-its-own-good campaign like “Fit for You.” Please? Thanks.

If you feel like checking out the videos of the “Fit for You” campaign for any reason, you can do just that below the jump.
