My place to say things about chess that I can't say in the other places where I say things about chess.
Honda Ridgeline Meets Chess (0:26) 'The surprisingly efficient Ridgeline built by Honda.'
These guys don't talk much ('Check!'), but they don't have to.

Strength meets intelligence? The one man's move does not put the other player in check - the only thing displayed here is that the marketing department wasn't intelligent. Lol. :D
Webmaster - Re 'The one man's move does not put the other player in check', yes, it does. The first guy plays Bf5, checking the King on c8. The second guy plays e6, blocking the check with a Pawn. The position isn't very realistic, but it respects 'White on right', which is more than you can say for a lot of commercial videos. - Mark
Interesting! They updated (fixed) the video! There is an older one where he places the bishop on the opposite square than the king. I wish I could find it - should have screen-shot the thing.
Dumbest board position ever.Look closely and you will see a black rook on c1, checking the white king. So the move's illegal, but if we're going by the best move disregarding that back row check, white should have pushed the pawn to h8 to promote with a free check out of it. This commercial has been bugging me on hulu for some time now. *angry face*
The short commercial they plan on TV is the old one that is not a check... It has been bugging me every time I see it. It's funny because their motto is "strength meets intelligence" and they don't know how to put someone in check!
