Infiniti Q 60 Kit Harington Ad

Hey, what do you know? Infiniti has hired Game of Thrones heartthrob Kit Harington as their ad huckster.

You know, I think a competitor of Infiniti, such as Lexus or Cadillac, should hire Rose Leslie* as their ad personality, and she could say: "An Infiniti? You know nothing, Jon Snow!" And then she could showcase her company's car. (Or we could see her drive the whatever brand of luxury car competing with Infiniti, and then she simply says: "You know nothing, Jon Snow!" and we'd all know what she meant.)

Here's a longer version of the Infiniti Kit Harington spot I just saw on TV:

* Rose Leslie played Jon Snow's Wildling girlfriend Ygritte on Game of Thrones, and she liked to say: "You know nothing, Jon Snow."

You know, Infiniti could also use Rose Leslie, and her: "You know nothing, Jon Snow" could simply be in reference to her preferring a different model of Infiniti, like maybe an SUV full of her Wildling buddies, and with axes and spears all sticking out the windows and a battering ram hanging out the back.

And then Infiniti could get Emilia Clarke to be in an ad for a sport coupe, and we see her as Daenerys Targaryen flying on her dragon Drogon, and then through CGI we see her morph into Emilia Clarke's normal look as she drives in a black sport coupe, and then we cut to the back of the car, and as fire sprays out the tailpipes, the announcer says: "Ride the dragon: the new (whatever model of Infiniti)."
