This Pontiac commercial aired sometime in 1990 through 1991 and features the voice of the Patrick Stewart, of Star Trek fame. The ad’s jingle says that the time to fly is now, “with the power of fuel-injected multi-valve engines, the security of anti-lock braking, systems, the agility of 4-wheel independent suspensions — this is a vast Pontiac technology for the 90s”, adds Mr. Stewart.
The 30-second spot concludes with an offer, that “from now until January 7  special factory incentives make all this Pontiac technology even more affordable.”
The GM Authority Take
As it turns out, Mr. Stewart did some voice work for Pontiac back in the 90s. In fact, there’s a tale that while rehearsing the first appearance of Picard as Locutus, he recited the line as “I am Locutus of Borg. Have you considered buying a Pontiac?”, setting the entire cast and crew into fits of laughter.
Any Trekkies out there who also happen to be fans of Pontiac or GM? (Not the the two are mutually inclusive.)
