This South Korean commercial was made for the inaugural year of the Daewoo LeMans. If you lived in the USA this car was known as the Pontiac LeMans from 1988-1993 even thought it was just a rebadged Daewoo LeMans. I never had much interest in the LeMans, but maybe that is because they did not run this South Korean commercial for the LeMans here in the United States.
It is a simple ad, featuring footage of the car, but with TRON-like burst of light magic to call attention to whatever the narrator is talking about. It definitely makes what is otherwise a fairly hum drum compact car look much more sleek and sexy.
