ZOMBIES REPORTED MEL RAPTON Honda
Last Tuesday night Zombies invaded the Mel Rapton Honda showroom!
No, they were not attacking, they were performing as cast member in two Mel Rapton Honda commercials promoting the new season of The Walking Dead debuting Sunday, October 13, 2013 on AMC.
Mel Rapton Honda partnered with Comcast/Xfinity to participate and as part of the good fun, agreed to shoot a story line that was faithful to the “Zombie” theme.
The players were all members of the local “zombie” group, without an official name, that appear at local events and promotions.
The story line is: Don’t be one of The Walking Dead looking to a used car you can afford!
The customer, played by Brooke Holdus of Comcast, is fleeing the evil bad car salesmen i.e. Zombies, and finds sanctuary at Mel Rapton Honda and is “saved” from a regretful car deal by a Mel Rapton Honda salesperson, played by Pat Silva, a real live Mel Rapton Honda Sales Manager.
It’s all in good fun, the way buying a car should be.
So tune in Sunday night and don’t be one of the Walking Dead.

2014 Honda Odyssey is First Minivan to Earn 2013 TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating; Highest Overall Safety Rating from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
The first minivan to earn the highest possible rating of 2013 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is the 2014 Honda Odyssey. This includes an overall GOOD rating in the Insurance Institute's stringent small overlap frontal crash test. The IIHS created the small overlap frontal crash test to replicate what happens when the front corner of a car collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or utility pole.
"Honda's commitment to safety is perhaps best demonstrated by the fact that we achieved this high standard in a mid-cycle refresh of the 2014 Honda Odyssey," said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. "Honda's goal is to continuously advance the safety performance of every Honda vehicle to fulfill the trust our customers place in the Honda brand."
Already the benchmark minivan in terms of fuel efficiency and innovative features, occupant safety for the 2014 Honda Odyssey is further enhanced through the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The second-generation of the ACE™ body structure has also been applied to the 2013 Honda Accord and 2013 Civic models that previously achieved the TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating. Civic is the only vehicle in the compact class to achieve the rating of GOOD in the small overlap frontal crash test.
"Safety is high on the list for parents when it comes to shopping for a family vehicle," said Institute President Adrian Lund. "Consumers look for models with the highest safety ratings. Honda is ahead of many of its competitors in building state-of-the-art crashworthiness into its vehicles."
