Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes people take it to far criticizing companies without taking the time to get to the root of issues. They choose to put a company on blast for everyone on the internet to see, when half the time its a small issue or miscommunication that blows up.

I'm not familiar with the whole thing that happened a few years back. You guys have some amazing wheels, and to put out a video like that, where your president, vice president and other employees are putting their faces out to the public and saying what was said in the video. It makes you respect these guys more, for not avoiding the past, for stating it and moving forward. I commend you guys for that and your company for that. Great video, great work. Maybe one day I'll be lucky to have a set.
Well said. Amazing video guys.

the You're Welcome at the end was actually recorded for the blooper reel and somehow made it's way onto the final cut of the video after we approved an edit without that in there.

Somebody messed up. Apologies!


Thank you for the feedback gents!

I think they were saying "your welcome" in (a comedic) reference to putting out some sick wheels for the automotive community. Don't take everything so serious.

Being such a young company, you guys really need to ensure your outbound messaging is solid. This should have never fallen through the cracks. Did you guys look at the video before posting it?

We looked at it and were aware it was there. After 6 months of waiting for the video and having some problems getting the company we hired to devote some time to finishing up our project we gave the executive decision to just get it out finally. It wasn't a massive error or blatantly screwed up part of the video - we just didn't want to wait another 2 weeks to have the company fix it.

Original production was supposed to be 2-3 months. That doubled, lots of angry phone calls and emails ensued and we're just happy to have it done.

Interesting video.

My advice to make the video better, is to not show the guys next to $100,000 cars while they are speaking about a company struggling. Its sends the wrong message. To me, it tells me they were struggling while they were driving those cars. Just not show what cars they drive now at all. They speak from the heart, but all i see is them flaunting their income with cars they drive now.

Yup. Success through hardship shouldnt give you an ego, it should make you more humble. Or you'll end up right back where you started.

The F430 was J's but got all Italian on him so he traded it in on the California you see in the video. Miguel drives the spyder.

This video proves that ADV.1 has puberty and means solid business. Well done guys.

It starts with passion, and ends with "YOU'RE WELCOME". that part cracked me up.
