as a former practioner of those black arts,  I would say it's a very good thing.  I don't think Guzzi has been as visible in the pop zeitgeist since Ann-Margret rode Ambassador in 'The Profit'

Props don't get selected for ads or films at random (usually),  like a element in a painting, they build towards a larger whole.  The increasing presence in the media of Guzzi suggests they are starting to break thru to a broader awareness.  Now if the sales would just pick a tic to reflect that....

Or open a dealer or two. :) 

they are defently becoming more "trendy"..  the more simple, old world bikes are really coming on strong the last few years. Maybe we will see a rebirth of the company.

Speaking of which, I watched a 2009 movie called Surrogates the other day. There are a few scenes in the movie that involve a motorcycle. I couldn't catch if it was a 4V or 8V, but a Griso for sure.

The model represents the typical Guzzi owner's significant other/ spouse perfectly.

That's interesting that the ad shows an older Guzzi, an early greenie V11 that dates back almost 20 years!
