Looking Back: Kate Walsh Is Turned On By Her Cadillac

This Cadillac CTS commercial starring Kate Walsh came out in 2007, but it’s still one I remember vividly. If I wrote Commercial Society back then, I have a feeling this would have been one of my most popular posts.

A great ad and weirdly sexy. I love Kate’s voice…she sounds a little bored when she’s describing the car’s features. But it all leads up to the ridiculous (and brilliant) tagline “When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?” I Googled that phrase, and it was all over the place after the spot debuted. We finish with a suggestive close-up of Kate’s (or some female’s) high-heeled foot, and hear the powerful sounds of Hum’s “Stars” as the car zooms off. I’ve watched a lot of commercials since this one, but it takes a special ad to stand out.

Time Warner Teases With This Fancy Commercial

Wait…so you mean that Time Warner Cable Signature Home DOESN’T include the pretty wife or swanky penthouse apartment? Ehh, not sure I’m interested anymore.

Oh, and the voiceover is by Kate Walsh. No wonder it reminded me of this sexy commercial. If I find out who the music is by, I’ll add that too. And here’s some info about Time Warner’s Signature Home in NoHo, NYC. I suppose it’s the one they used in the commercial.
