    I don't watch ads, but this came on during a football game. All I saw was an athletic looking guy and there was a shot of a red Mondial conv making a turn. Then it cut away to something else.

    I didn't see enough to prove it was a Mondial, but clearly rosso corsa, and clearly a convertible. Pretty sure it was. I think they were selling some kind of fru-fru bottle of something, maybe aftershave.

    If you've seen it, post up a link. Weird, seeing a 30 year old car in a modern ad.

    Ok, so this is Bronco's player Von Miller, and this was released in September.

    I'm from Denver and purchased my 3.2 in Nov/Dec.

    I SWEAR this is NOT the reason I purchased my Mondi... I'm not even a Broncos fan LOL :)

    From the glances I see, I don't see too much "mutilation". What are you referring to? It does look like a Red/Tan QV Mondial.

    I think he is referring to the side vents. It seems they removed the grill and tried to smooth out the intake.

    although it does look like it might have been digitally altered for whatever reason....in the video that section looks extra blurry/muddy.

    Hah! So I wasn't imagining it. And a QV at that. I wonder sometimes about advertiser geniuses. The Mondial could never have been considered the 'prototypical' model of the brand. One more thing. Based on a snip at the 6 second mark, and also when he turns, it's apparent to me the top is not folded right. Another common issue with the Mondial top is to fail to fold the bows correctly, so the top sticks up too high.
