14ers in Commercial Advertising

Postby tlongpine » Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:35 am

The new Prius ad features the Maroon Bells (or at least a striking likeness of the Bells).



This has me wondering if/when the 14ers have made other appearances in commercials. Any other examples?

I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.

Maroon Bells put in a completely different environment...
As I know, Wilson Peak is on coors beer cans, guess there are many more as I recall a debate on this topic..

I remember this Marines video from a few years ago. Elbert and Massive show up at 0:30.

The early seconds of a Jeep commercial currently airing appear to me to be on CO82 right along Twin Lakes with 13ers Quail & Hope in the background. 'Could be wrong but each time I've seen it sure has looked familiar in that way. 'Seems like I've seen it during football coverage so it might air again during today's NFL games.

Here's what T-Mobile's ad thinks Denver looks like. Name those peaks.

Not a 14er, but Buffalo Mountain in Silverthorne makes an appearance in this one.

There is also a commercial driving up Pikes. The make/model escapes me.

There was a thread on that a couple months back; it looks like somewhere in the Eastern Sierra. Possibly US 50 up to Tahoe or 395.

The Bells in the Prius commercial have somewhat of a different perspective vs. the familiar view from Maroon Lake. The peak in the back (putatively Maroon) looks higher than the one in front (North Maroon), whereas from Maroon Lake, North Maroon looks higher to most viewers.
