Default only way bonneville gets to appear in tv commercial?

there'* a tv commercial I've seen a few times recently for the new Pontiac Wave, it'* 2 cars parked on street with motorcycle sideways between them (view is from the other side of the street) in front of store (sign says Antique Bazar), motorcycle pulls out, and Pontiac Wave pulls up and backs up sideways into space between 2 cars that motorcycle was in. As people climb out of Wave, various cars drive past. I'm sure the last car to drive by is a 96-99 bonnie

Anyone else seen this?

Seen the one with the GXP and G6 in the two outer bays of a 3-car garage, then the GTO comes in and drifts in to the center spot backwards? That one is cool.

according to an article in the automotive section of the local newspaper, "the Grand Prix GXP is the latest GXP concept to reach production, following this year'* successful launch of the V8-powered Bonneville GXP, which currently accounts for about 30 per cent of all Bonneville sales"

I spotted a Bonne in the background of an antacid pill commercial. They're zooming in on a lady in a convertible stuck in rush hour. Right next to her is a 2K+ Bonne
