Hail: Hyundai Sonata turbo
A series of Hyundai-on-the-highway scenarios -- the couple driving are trailing, briefly, a biker with a large posterior, slobbering dogs, a leaking chemical truck and more -- demonstrates why having a turbocharged engine is a good thing. Each scene is droll and, to a degree, familiar. Not a second is wasted. "Stuck" probably won¿t win the average-viewer polls: Nobody gets punched in the privates, and the cute animals make only a brief appearance. But it is a nearly perfect TV ad. Hyundai also scores with its "Team" and "Epic Playdate" spots.
