Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) doesn’t spend a whole lot (if anything) on advertising anyway, and it really doesn’t need to. Between all the media reports and the fan-made commercials, the automaker gets other people to take care of those costs. Transport Evolved spotted the newest commercial put together by a fan.
Tesla ad features manufacturing footage, Charlie Chaplin
The ad begins with a famous phrase spoken by Charlie Chaplin in the film The Great Dictator: “I’m sorry; I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible.” The commercial also uses other parts of the famous speech throughout the commercial.

While the speech is going on, we see video of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)’s Model S and its production inside Tesla’s factory. Then we see a pair of Model S sedans driving side by side down the road and then parked at the Supercharger station.
The video of the Model S sedans driving is from the road trip famously taken by Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) during its coast to coast road trip. We see the cars driving through the snowstorms as well. The ad closes with the phrase “Drive the future” under the Tesla name.
This Tesla ad uses a different tactic
If you remember the last Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) ad put together by a fan, this one is strikingly different. The last ad was very science-fiction in nature. It shows what kids might see if they climb behind the wheel of the futuristic-looking Model S. The child goes on a trip through outer space, and Dad even joins in on the fun after discovering the kid behind the wheel of his car.
This one, on the other hand, features Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)’s goal of shifting the world to electric vehicles so that people can save the environment. The use of the famous speech is certainly very fitting in this respect.
