Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Hyundai "Cheetah" Ad Is A Winner

The car commercials are clearly the stars of the 2012 Super Bowl ad season. We've seen some great spots from Acura, Audi & Toyota and here Hyundai turns in another winner. This one is titled "Cheetah" and looks from the outset like a pretty typical car ad. It's got the new Hyundai Veloster Turbo in a desert and it appears as though it will race a cheetah, which is pacing angrily in a cage. I'm not sure why anyone would expect that a cheetah could outrun a car.... but it does seem like a typical car ad setup.

The twist happens when the race starts, the cheetah is let out of its cage, takes a few steps and realizes the race is pointless, then turns around to attack the guy who just let it out of of the cage. He runs off screaming and hilarity ensues as the guy is presumably mauled by the cheetah.
