To prove that its new Civic Coupe is anything but square, Honda has released a 30-second TV spot to show off the car's "new sleek design and sporty curves." In the ad, square people walk their square dogs as square cars fill the streets. The ad even starts out in a square format, but when the Civic Coupe enters into the screen, the frame begins to expand and the dull, "square" world is disrupted.
