Shea Holbrook Stars In "The Push"

The new Civic Si makes a better race car than it does a road car. That’s the message that I got from the new Compass360/Honda promotional video starring Shea Holbrook. Ms. Holbrook is by turns charming, wooden, stilted, and charming again. The Compass360 Civic is already a multiple event winner. The plain-vanilla one running down the freeway next to it? No thanks, unless it comes with a twenty-something female racer willing to coach me a bit.

    "A car that can do... this!" Drive in a straight line? Wowzers. It's easy to learn how far to push it - you just have to listen for the squealing.

    Why does Shea's wardrobe change from zero helmet, suit and gloves to full nomex kit with the car change? Insurance reasons? Is the Compass360 more dangerous than the regular Civic? Were they trying to match Shea with the car logos? It was kinda frustrating, like an xhamster video where clothing is added with time. Sorta...

    She lacks charisma. Much like the new civic..

    I'm a bit underwhelmed. I expected her to chirp a tire when shifting or something when she said "THIS!" but she just drove straight as The Doctor observed. Wouldn't mind a new Si though...
