Car Dealer Advertising Is A Gift From Satan.



One of the best things in the entire universe is local car dealership advertising. Pure stupidity. Not the filtered, over-analyzed stupidity the client/ad agency dynamic nets. I found this gem paging through the latest issue of Improper Bostonian. That's Ernie Boch, Jr. on the right.

Ernie Boch Jr., and his dad before him, are sort of local Boston legends for this sort of cheesy crap. Not saying it's effective, but the putz is a billionaire.

It's like discount furniture ads. Suck-ass. But man, they work. Also, check out the doc Slasher, about used-car salesmen. Total fucking whores. But hey, they work.

Oh, it's still a suck-ass ad, even without the reference. Maybe even historically suck-ass.

;-p

I must admit.. I like ads like these, where the guy is willing to look like a complete idiot. Car salesman are always doing screaming-at-the-top-of-their-lungs and over the top antics, and frankly, it always makes me chuckle a bit. They don't pretend to be anything but who they are, and I must respect that.

How old are you concha? You don't look that young.

You actually look kind of old. Not old like useless worn out tennis shoe soles that clap when you run but old like still useful worn out leather car seats that make fart noises when you slide in or take a hard curve.

How could you not get the coppertone ref without the coppertone ref?

(Don't be mad - you know you fine girrrl.)

its creative, but not effective. the company name should be bigger, so it doesn't look like your promoting ass.

I miss Chico the Llama, and the Magical Donkey, of early Boch days.
