I was just talking with Sarah Jackson, one of our fellow coasterbuzzer's about a commericial she saw for Mazda that showed a roller coaster as part of the footage for the commercial. I had seen the commercial a few days ago, during the opening cerimonies to the Olympics and had put it out of my mind until Sarah brought it up.
Now, I don't know what coaster was in it. I know it was floorless and blue and had yellow restraints, but that really doesnt matter.
The crux of the commercial was a ringing cell phone playing the Mazda zoom-zoom-zoom theme over and over again. Anyways, the person on the coaster answered her cell phone while going through an inversion on the ride... is this an image we want people to have when they visit amusement parks? *** Edited 8/16/2004 1:09:35 AM UTC by Kick The Sky***

Not to sound like a technical jerk... but the song is actually "Zoom zoom
" by Only the Strong (not boom boom
) that's used & licensed to Mazda.

The coaster shown is Scream at SFMM.

DawgByte, it's actually "Zoom Zoom" by Serapis Bey. It was used in the movie, Only the Strong, and is featured on the soundtrack along with some other fine Serapis Bey tracks.

I can't believe there's no warning--yet.
I find it amazing that they have to tell you that the two kids driving the Covettes in the Chevy commercial currently airing is a dream sequence. Really? You mean Corvettes can't fly? There is a host of other stupid car commercials where they have to tell you not to follow the dumb people in the ad.

I'd been wondering what coaster that was! With it being floorless, and the curved drop before the loop, I guessed it was a SFGAdv Medusa clone. I'm not surprised that it would be Scream!, considering that SFMM is close to Los Angeles.
I am also somewhat surprised that there is no disclamer. *** Edited 8/17/2004 12:53:05 AM UTC by Hypercoaster Rider***
