Using a mime to host a car review not only seems impossible, but just plain odd. For the Rosenthal Automotive team it’s business as usual, pushing the creative boundaries of vehicle reviews is what they do best.
“A mime explores Acura’s new 2013 Acura ILX and takes it for a test drive. Meanwhile Steve is stuck without a car to review and must take matters into his own hands.”
Not surprising, the first few minutes with the mime are silent, but things start to get interesting at around the 6-minute mark once Steve enters the picture and realizes his test vehicle has gone missing.
Check out the latest review from Rosenthal Automotive below.

Rosenthal Automotive’s 2013 Acura RDX Test Drive & Review
When it comes to video reviews, no one pushes the boundaries of creativity like the Rosenthal Automotive group. Their past videos of the 2012 Acura TL and 2011 Acura MDX feature a thorough overview of the vehicle, stunning visuals, and an injection of humour for good measure.
The latest video features the all-new 2013 Acura RDX, and while the bizarre intro had me scratching my head and laughing at the same time, it’s still a quality review with that added entertainment value I’ve come to expect from Rosenthal Automotive.
Don’t miss Steve’s Matrix-like leap over the RDX in the video review below.

2013 Acura ILX Track Test Video
Acura’s newest sedan took to the track for some performance testing thanks to Edmunds’ Inside Line. The model of choice for this video packed the 2.4-litre 201 horsepower engine which is mated to a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. Combine that with its compact frame and light weight, the ILX turns out to be a fairly quick little car with some decent 0-60 and 1/4 Mile times.

Marvel’s The Avengers – In Theatres May 4th
Acura hosted special advanced screenings of Marvel’s The Avengers this past week in select cities across Canada and the US, and if you were a lucky Acura owner in attendance, you already know how awesome this movie is.
I was fortunate enough to receive a pair of passes to the Edmonton event tonight courtesy of West Side Acura. It was an Acura mini-meet as owners filled the lot to see the Avengers assemble on screen. My good friend and Acura enthusiast Marty Quon even brought his car out of hibernation for the summer, arriving in his mint 2004 Silverstone NSX. Attendees who weren’t rushing in for seats were able to stop and check out the 2013 ILX parked out front, and I finally got to see the production ILX for the first time since I saw the concept debut in Detroit.
Acura guests were able to redeem their tickets for free snacks and received a goodie bag containing an Acura pamphlet, Avengers poster and key chain. Before the movie started the audience was presented with a few Acura promo videos and commercials. I’ve seen the NSX Concept intro about a hundred times, but it felt like a whole new experience seeing it on the big screen.
After all the trailers, posters and hype for The Avengers these past few months, you’re probably wondering if it was worth the wait. Superheroes coming together to save the world, we’ve seen it done before. This one just has a bigger cast of characters right? While it’s true the premise does sound cliche and the film does contain a huge all-star cast, The Avengers still manages to live up, and even exceed all the hype. Somehow even with six prominent superheroes, they were able to successfully create a genuine and compelling storyline where each character was able to shine. Let’s not forget there’s still also Nick Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents Hill and Coulson, and the antagonist Loki who played an excellent villain.
Though it may make you feel like a kid again trying to decide which superhero is your favourite, you don’t need to be comic book fan to enjoy this one. There’s non-stop entertainment and fun for all ages, so don’t miss out on the biggest blockbuster of the summer. Marvel’s The Avengers hits theatres May 4th.
