Normally I refrain from embedding YouTube movies in my blog simply because videos from that site are often taken down as fast as they’re put up, and there’s nothing more annoying that clicking the play button and being treated to a blank screen with a “video is no longer available” message. However, I decided to take a chance with this amusing Argentinean Ford commercial which uses giant monsters to illustrate the passenger capacity of their vehicles:
I’ve come across at least three other commercials from this same series, but the one I’ve posted here is my favorite of the lot.

The whole card thing supposedly has been dropped in the Wii version in favor of using the motion-based controls that the system is famous for in order to guide the monsters’ actions. I’m not 100% sure what the game features in the way of interactive environments, but based on the screenshots I could find, I would guess that the surrounding cityscape is merely a backdrop verses something that the player could knock down during the course of a battle.
It’s hard to say if this title will ever see a North American release, given that the Ultraman franchise is nowhere near as popular or recognized over here, but stranger things have happened.
