Watch: The coolest TV ad of all time features nearly every famous movie car

Famous Movies

The Mystery Machine, the Bat-mobile and the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters were just some of the famous movie cars that featured in Walmarts latest advert.


The latest Walmart advert is being called one of the most expensive ads of 2019 so far. That is because it features many different famous movie cars all in one advert. The royalties paid out to feature these cars must have been through the roof.

Cars from famous movies included in the ad were, the Flinstones car, Ghostbusters, Batman, Scooby-doo, Back to the Future, Lightning McQueen from Cars, the dog van from Dumb and Dumber, the car from the movie National Lampoon’s Vacation, Jurassic Park, Knight Rider, Cinderalla and Transformers.

There were a few cars we couldn’t place so let us know in the comments which famous movies we missed.

As you can see, there are some iconic cars featured in the advert and people are loving the throwback vibes they got from watching it.

“We not only picked ‘famous cars’ from iconic movies we knew would be instantly recognisable to our customers, but we also worked with a variety of different Hollywood studios to gain access to these vehicles. This helped ensure the ‘famous cars’ looked just like what our customers knew from the films.” – Barbara Messing, Walmart’s chief marketing officer 

There were many famous cars they could have selected. What were some of your favourite movie cars? Thelma and Louis’s 1966 Ford Thunderbird is a car of beauty or maybe even the MK IV Toyota Supra, which was the car Paul Walker’s character Brain o’Conner drag raced in first ever Fast and the Furious.

Watch the epic advert below.
