Hyundai Elantra’s “nice” Super Bowl commercial

Hyundai ran two ads during the 2014 Super Bowl, and "Nice" features actor Johnny Galecki and comedian Richard Lewis. (Hyundai)

The Product: Hyundai Elantra

The Premise: Fans of “The Big Bang Theory’s” Leonard Hofstadter will be pleased to see Johnny Galecki, navigating a series of obstacles in his Hyundai in an attempt to impress a girl.

The Punchline: Hyundais are hashtag nice; this guy is bad at flirting. Richard Lewis makes a cameo, and makes me miss “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

The Verdict: Looks expensive. But there’s not too much of a payoff in this rather forgettable ad.
