Tenet

Tenet (2020) | Filmtopp

Have you seen the movie Tenet? Tenet is an action-thriller directed by Christopher Nolan. It was released in 2020 and has a decent score of 7.4 at IMDB. The plot is a bit tricky to follow, since it plays with our conception of time.

So why would I mention this film here? The obvious reason is Saab. To be more precise: an NG 9-5 which is driven and crashed in more than one temporal dimension. You can follow the hero of the film both getting into the Saab, driving the Saab and finally crashing it.

It would seem to be quite a shame to spoil a fairly rare car, or probably several of them. The good thing is that we all get a visual proof of Saab safety. The roof is hardly bent, even after spinning violently. You can see the car laying upside down in the last video below. You could probably open all four doors despite the crash. The actual explosion should be considered a movie feature. Cars seldom explode in real life.

I have linked some videos showing the Saab in different scenes. Spoiler alert!

First, the actual crash in two perspectives
Behind the scenes footage
The protagonist enters and drives the NG Saab 9-5. The rims are not original! A cool thing is that you can see some Saab specific features like starting the car with the button in the center console.

Saabs occur in quite a lot of films and TV-shows. Perhaps we should revisit this topic some other time?

Saab NG 9-5 Commercials

I love the new 9-5. Not sure I figured it out fully from the very start, but design grows on you. I still think it it has a modern look and the old commercials make me want to buy one. Sad thing you can’t anymore.

I wonder what a Saab commercial would look like 2021, ten years after last Saab was sold, if things would have turned out better?

Watch and enjoy!

Original Saab 9-5 commercial. The car looks stunning! You can recognize scenes from Gothenburg, like the “Göta”-tunnel. I love the song, it gives hope for a better future, which never really came in this case. I could not find out who is singing. Maybe it is Frida Öhrn who sings Release Me in the 9-3 commercial?

NG SAAB 9-5 Commercial.
Presenting the All New Saab 9-5 SportCombi – Finally something in full HD resolution!
Beautiful Swedish Car, SAAB 9 5. This one is a combination of the original commercial and a Romanian test, all put together like a music video. The test part shows a great deal of the NG 9-5 features, like the HUD.

Finally another remix composed of Saab 9-5 commercials and the sound from a Volvo XC70 commercial featuring Swedish footballer, Zlatan speaking to a version of the Swedish National Anthem.
