Buick has just released a new commercial inviting people to step up their emoji game with Apple CarPlay compatibility in the 2018 Buick Encore.
Titled “Emoji”, the 30-second spot features two young women in a Buick Encore stopping at a crossroad. The driver says Jill is texting her and selects the text message, which is read out loud: “Can’t wait for tonight. Clapping hand. Thumbs up. Face with tears of joy. Taco. Unicorn. Smiling pile of poo. Winking face with stuck-out tongue.” Hearing it, the driver concludes that Jill “is really excited about dinner tonight” and her friend agrees. The Buick Encore. With Apple CarPlay support for iPhone. An SUV that’s really for anything.” – the voiceover says at the end of the spot.
