Hyundai Generosity in Australia

Hyundai has been positioning themselves as Australia’s most generous car company in a TV ad featuring a do-gooder presenter accompanied by a street busker. “Where has generosity gone?”, he asks, walking into a restaurant. “Why do we pay for corkage these days for a bottle that doesn’t even have a cork?” He picks up a woman and carries her across the street. “Why won’t anyone help ladies across the streets anymore?” He passes and pays a busker. “And surely this guy is worth more than twenty cents!” The presenter enters a Hyundai sales room. “Well at Hyundai, generosity’s back. During their mid year sale there’s a unbelievable sales across a huge range of Hyundais. All with Australia’s first five year warranty with unlimited kilometres. Now that’s… (busker sings…) Generosity!
