These Hyundai Sonata Drivers Belt Out “Sweet Caroline” During A Traffic Jam

Getting stuck in traffic sucks. But it helps if you have some good music to get through it. In this new Hyundai Sonata spot, a man (played by Brian Maillard) puts his pipes to use with a rousing rendition of Neil Diamond’s super-singable classic “Sweet Caroline.” It’s so infectious that he gets a female Sonata driver (played by Edi Patterson…thanks to a commenter for that info) right next to him to join in for a duet. Aww.

    Best ad on television

    A little something I shared on the Hyundai FB page:

    For the love of God and all things holy…. KILL YOUR “SWEET CAROLINE” AD!! Bad enough Neil Diamond is an insipid lyricist with an unremarkable voice, and that this song may have been a pedophile’s paean to a 9-year-old Caroline Kennedy, but I’ve heard this commercial about TEN TIMES an hour during The Late Show for the last two weeks! I don’t care about how sleek and stylish your sedan is! Pick more contemporary music, and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stop this commercial from ever airing again!!

    I wanted to know name of the woman in this ad. She looks a lot like Tom Hank’s wife.

    So not original…they copied this from an episode of Big Bang Theory….Amy and Walowitz

  9. Bev says:

    Does anyone know what city this commercial was filmed in?

  10. JDonovan says:

    I think the biggest problem in this commercial is that it makes Hyundai drivers look bad. Drive a Hyundai and have everyone else on the road look at you like you are an singing moron.

    The stupid anti ad remarks tell a lot about America…it is an ad…get over yourself…Sweet Caroline and Neidl Diamond are bigger than you and your petty remarks ever will be…you don’t matter…turn the ad off, but you are clearly in the minority. To me…it looks like Kansas City, MO

    • Joe says:

      Your post says just as much…like clockwork, someone like you chimes in with condescending remarks. Ironically, you’re the one who needs to get over yourself.

  12. Denise plested says:

    Why so much hate and bad language? It’s only an ad, guys!

  13. K says:

    Please make it stop! How many times a day do they have to sannoying.I have to mute it because it’s pretty annoying.

  14. W M says:

    I need this ringtone!

  15. Neil Dannels says:

    And sometimes commercials are the worst part of tv viewing. Exibit a:
    Hyanni’s Butchering of the Neil Diamond song. Very annoying
