    Ok, I'm lost here. Just watched the Subaru Big Tent Event ad for the 15th time. It's the one where a guy is dressed in a gorilla-suit and someone sais 'no not that kind of tent' and he points at a small tent with deer in the middle of the showroom. I DON'T GET IT!!???

    I googled it and all I found was people asking the same questions. But there are so many smart people on TPF, so someone can solve this, right?
    (besides the fact that I'm falling for the whole 'we confuse you, so you talk about it and you'll remember our ad' tactic)


    I thought this was off topic enough...:mrgreen:

    Just looks like they are trying to emphasize the outdoorsy aspect of it. ;)

    It's a new marketing tactic. It's the 'Gorilla man drives this, so should you' tactic. It's been popular in Kenya for a while, and I'm glad to see it's finally making its way to the States. 'Bout time.

    Big tent = crazy eye grabbing tactics like a guy in a gorilla suit. ( a big fancy show just to bring ppl in and sell any old product)

    Small tent = camping tent/real outdoor environment. which is what they think you will really use your subaru for.

    does that make sense? im not describing it very well but...

    They are saying its not a huge eye catching big tent event that you would normaly associate with a car sale..

    its a small camping tent.. buy a subaru and you can use it to enjoy the outdoors in places you couldn't before-type of thing.

    Haha. Maybe in some places.

    I'm in Maine, I could walk a hundred feet behind my house and get the outdoors experience. Everyone 'round here has a Subaru. Or a pickup truck. Ridiculous.
