Enjoy this TRON-esque commercial for the 1986 Daewoo Lemans

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.
