This article reports on the launch of an infomercial created by Draft Worldwide for General Motors' Cadillac automobiles in the U.S. in August 1999. The 30-minute infomercial aims to take buyers away from Lexus, BMW of North America and Mercedes-Benz USA. Former MTV VJ Mark Goodman does the voice-over for the Seville STS pitch, which pits the luxury sport sedan against three import models. The infomercial will air on a variety of cable channels and will use a relatively small portion of Cadillac's advertising budget.
