Honda has launched its new jet into the public skies with a new television commercial, “Sky”, in 60 second and 30 second versions. The Honda Sky ad features a man in a blue Honda coverall painting a city sky blue. As the workman paints his way through the skyline, the dreams of the city occupants seem to take on new meaning. A boy looks out through his apartment window, yearning for the skies it seems. A street ball game becomes a sky ball game. Roadworks become skyworks. A swimmer dives into a pool, gliding among the clouds reflected in the water. Skateboarders wend their way through cloudy slopes. The workman looks to the skies to follow the progress of a HondaJet. The super: “Reach the sky. Honda. The Power of Dreams”.
