Television Commercials with Airstreams

I could not find a dedicated thread to just TV (television) commercials that (secondarily) show Airstreams to the general public. I saw a Lexus commercial several weeks ago (only one time) on a U.S. TV station. It was showing their new SUV model towing around an Airstream. In one prominent scene the camera is showing the Lexus coming towards the camera and the letters "Airstream" are prominently visible above and behind the Lexus. Unfortunately I cannot find any web video of it.

The following commercial has been playing regularly over the last month on Ontario, Canada, stations for the Canadian Lotto 649. I've seen it at least 15x. One night they showed it 6x in a couple hours. When my wife saw it first she said excitedly, "There is this lottery commercial where they show two Airstreams!" Couldn't wait to see it!

The message of course is that "IF" you win the jackpot, you can live your dreams! What else, but using an Airstream for this? In the past "winners" have been shown living the dream on yachts.

I was fascinated to know where in Canada is this scenery so did some research. Answer...it is NOT in Canada! It was shot in Croatia, and dubbed back in Canada!! Go figure! Apparently, Croatia is a European hotbed of RV activity.

Enjoy!

yeah, I think it's the Lexus commercial where they are towing around a 19' Airstream. It's on several times an hour on some channels. When they show an interior shot with everyone in bed, it's obviously not the same trailer, as the bed is a queen with nightstands on both sides

Saw the new Cialis commercial a couple of nights ago. There is a little Bambi sitting a drive way.

I have also seen a commercial that ends with the couple in bed looking at , I think, maps. It is a drug commercial and after seeing it many times I realized that the bed is crosswise of the trailer not lengthwise. Airstream does make a 19 footer with a crosswise queen or double.

Also watch the Yogi Bear movie with Dan Ackroyd doing the voice of Yogi, at the beginning there is an Airstream being towed into Jellystone Park.

Don't forget the Progressive insurance commercials. There several different ones that use Airstreams.

Maybe they had a breakdown

The trailer in this Volkswagen Tuareg ad sure looks like an Airstream to me…

our Lotto Corp. Atlantic Lotto, has commercials showing two Airstreams and a motorhome and they are driving around the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia, the idea is "we won the Lotto".

The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder commercial had an Airstream, as did the Lexus LX470.

I saw a commercial for NCIS last night that featured a shiny, new Airstream trailer in the background with NCIS on it in big letters.

Wonder if an Airstream is going to be part of the new season.....

Which NCIS? Original flavor, Los Angeles, or New Orleans?

Original . . . and I think it was a general CBS holiday commercial. Had Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer also.

I'll have to watch for it. I wonder if the trailer will appear in an episode or it's a "cast and crew" trailer for location filming?

Original, yes, and if it was a general holiday commercial I was apparently too enthralled with the Airstream to catch all of that.

I thought it was pretty cool that NCIS was on the Aistream.
