Yea maybe i watch too much tv, but here they started showing GTL ads during March madness. And I often see the ads on ESPN, & maybe some other channels during sports stuff, particularly motor sports.

Apparently it's better than M1 at keeping your pistons clean:

What's most interesting to me is the decided change in color of Pennzoil's marketing. Literally. The new Pennzoil, from the website to the bottle, has moved from the older silver and yellow to a grey and blue/black. Pennzoil's logo is still yellow. I wonder if we'll see a Pennzoil logo modernization sometime soon as well. Their main website is still full of yellow and red, like parent company Shell:

http://www.pennzoil.com/

But the new Platinum stuff is black and blue. Interesting.

If they change the color of the conventional bottle, I will switch brands!

I will only buy oil bottles/jugs that have celebrity pictures & endorsements. Whatever Clooney uses.
