Another Tesla Fan-Made Commercial Brings Hope

Tesla Motors, the manufacturer of premium electric cars, famously doesn’t need any advertising budget. That’s because it has an army of drivers and fans willing to make commercials for them.

From driving to the beach on Gallons of Light to jetting off into space in 60 Seconds, each fan-made video manages to grab a part of the wonder that comes with driving an electric vehicle.

The latest fan-made Tesla commercial is called ‘Hope’. It uses footage from Tesla’s manufacturing plant in Fremont, California plus some footage from the record-breaking coast-to-coast trip undertaken by Tesla.

Over the top of this is one of the most iconic speeches from film history. Charlie Chaplin’s final speech in The Great Dictator that starts ‘I’m sorry, I don’t want to be an emperor.’

One of the most well-known speeches in cinema history provides the awe-inspiring voiceover in 'Hope'.

But advertising for electric cars is tricky to get right. Even major manufactures make some odd decisions, from Nissan’s huggable polar bears to Cadillac’s ‘poolside’ which painted their own customers as… well, jerks.

    “Unfortunately, this video is not available in your country because it could contain music, for which we could not agree on conditions of use with GEMA.”nnDespite all court cases and legal battles still no hope in Youtube-censored Germany 🙁 This is such a sad and shaming situation for a global corporation such as Google – incapable and incompetent of coming to terms with a music rights organisation…nnAnd only because it “could” contain GEMA-music, meaning they ban just about everything with music, just like a certain semi-dictator recently did in a north-Mediterranean country by banning youtube for it’s citizens.

    I dont like the video at all, its just a hack and slash of 2 existing videos pretty unremarkable when compared to some of the other Tesla fan adverts.
