Airstreams in Commercials

All you Airstream owners. Have you seen lately on TV commercials with an Airsteam in them? How about magazine ads?
Is this the begining of a new trend ? Are Airstreams the latest rage??

Chevy pulls an Airstream (Commercial)

Shampoo commercial has an Airstream in the background.


Our 1971 AS is moving right along. This weekend we finished the floor, we decided to use vinyl tiles. Got new tires also.

Happy Holidays too All !!!!

Yes, we have noticed the "presence" of Airstreams in quite a few commercials.....in one I noticed on TV , think it was for Chevy PU's, I wondered it the Airstream was actually hooked to the PU.

Is it possible that Airstream pays manufacturers/product advertisers for these "cameo" appearances?

I actually don't see much Airstream advertising that seems specifically paid for by the factory.

Campbell's Tomato Soup

I caught two glimpses today of what looks like a 70's era AS in a tomato soup ad on TV.

Mtv

MTV promo of "Pimp my Ride" included what appears to be a single axle, 1950's airstream.
Should anyone find out info on it please post.

Target corporation is having a "Hello Kitty" charity auction for Unicef and Target House. One of the items: a 25' CCD "Hello Kitty" Airstream. Current Bid is $41,000.

Not quite an ad, but close enough to post.

Post did the vinyl too

Just back on forums looking for info on sealing seams etc. and saw this thread. I think it is a new trend, and how can we be surprised? Others are now recognizing something we may have known for a while. Airstreams are cooooool. For myself, i've always been drawn to airplanes, trains and things, so not surprising my being drawn to something with so many rivets and such amazing lines. Well, enough. My husband and I just had armstrong commercial put in our 74 overlander and are extremely pleased. This should be our year to actually use it... looking forward to it. Hope you're as pleased with your flooring.

Having an Airstream is like traveling with a "star"; I get asked questions like--is it new?, people want to see the interior, and mine is newer (2002).

I really think that some of you "afficinados" that have retrieve/rebuilt Airstreams have a lot to do with this fasination in the public's awareness.

Thinking it cost us a lot of $ (53,000) it was cheap for the feelings I/we get.
Was born poor and had to have a Cadillac and an Airstream.

Airstream Cameo

Blue Collar TV, during the intro.... Jeff Foxworthy with image of Airstream behind him (prolly video cooking) I just caught it as it was fading, did not see detail. Forgive me if someone already posted this and I missed it.

DirecTV has one also. Free???? I think not. These are paid for product placements. A better approach than fighting over decals.
