    I am so easily amused, so none of you will probably find this as funny as I do, but check out this commerical that was on T.V


    I had to watch this about 5 times to take it all in. This is just too much. I will honestly say this is the best commerical I have ever seen. I don't think anyone could top this one. Very brilliant indeed. And yes this is actually played on TV.

    I think the most amazing part is people actually had an idea for this commerical, and then they had to execute the idea. What is wrong with people these days? This is almost intended to be a serious commercial. These people should be embarassed of themselves for being involved with something like this. I wonder whos idea this was anyways?

    BTW: The dancing tiger/lion thing is awsome.

    This really is the dumbest thing ever. It's so bad it's funny. Who would actually make a commercial like this?

    I have been to an oil change place several times, and it was nothing like in this commercial. No one was dancing or singing, and there wasn't any giant lions dancing around to the employees rapping.

    These guys must really like this oil shop, which is pretty sad. Why on Earth would they want to do a commercial like this? And who on Earth would allow this to be made in order to advertise their business?

    I see the humor.

    Yeah, just imagine your marketing guys pitching this idea to you.

    "Ok, This is what I see, Everybody in the lube pit is rapping, and then we cut to this lion dressed up like a king and he's just groovin along with the rappers"

    They will be talking about demographics and target audience yada yada yada. Like the farmer looking guy in the truck they are rapping to.

    Funniest thing is that the fool they pitched it to went with it.

    I personally would have went for the "Pimp My Ride" theme...

    Ha Ha HA HA HA. Freeken hilarious.
  10. Brilliant. The lion is the money maker in this commercial.
  11. hahahaha thats for sure one of the worst commercials ever...

    i love stupid stuff like that...

    Not great marketing, but much, much better than those awful Levi's commercials.

    ...mmm Flint. My home(y)town.? James, you rock! Funny commercial. Is it really any worse than the Mr. Alan's: "...$29.99 or 2 fer $50.00!"?

    You know the answer to that one.

    NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! These guys are Mr. Alan's wannabees. They couldn't even shine Mr. Alan's gators!! (Detroiters will understand that reference)

    Besides, you have to get the inflection right.....it's

    "twin-nine-niney nine or two fer fiddy"
