Cars.com: "Death Match"

by Jen Creer, posted Feb 3rd 2008 8:17PM
This was a lame commercial. This guy brings Glondor, a big, bald tattooed guy (USA Today calls him a Medicine Man, which I find insulting to shamans everywhere) to a car lot, potentially to fight the used car salesman. But he won't have to! Because thanks to his cell phone and Cars.com, he got all the information he needs about the car he wants to buy.

In the meantime, Glondor is busy making the stone circle of death around the clueless used car salesman. They were going for over the top or cute or out there or something. It was just... lame.

Perhaps it would be best to match the style--moreso the mentalty--of the above writer to level the playing field...

This was a 'lame' review. The writer watched one of our T.V. spots from the Super Bowl noticed a laptop sitting nearby and felt compelled to try and fill the gaping void in their life by writing a review. But what they failed to personally reflect upon was that damn "writing career" they're never going to accomplish because opportunity doesn't like them and refuses to knock on their door.

The review merely reiterates living proof that the internet makes it easy for fools to publish themselves. And having personally read this review, I can now convey that not only did opportunity refuse to knock on this person's door, I'm pretty sure, while driving away, it bashed in their mailbox too. Because 'it was just...lame'.

The only positive insight I received from this review is the reminder that I must call USA Today and demand they apologize for their potential insulting of 'shamans everywhere' and threaten to send Glondoor to duke it out with their Food Critic if they fail to comply. That's not too much of a request, right? Right??

If USA Today, a professional organization, is going to review our commercials, they shouldn't make such incorrect references; calling a big bald tattooed guy a 'Medicine Man'. Yeah! That's especially lacking in professionalism when clearly, we had a second TV Spot during the Super Bowl that actually showcased a Witch Doctor--would've been more fitting there! Yes, I'll totally be calling them.

But first of all, let me wipe all that sarcasm off of your non-glare LCD screen, Ms. Creed. You'll need to be able to see your desktop, considering the next time you wish to post such garbage, the Recycle Bin will be the most fitting domain.

I disagree I liked this one - it was short, to the point, and the punchline made me laugh.

I'm with you. It wasn't rolling on the floor spitting up milk from the cheese I ate two days earlier hilarious, but it was pretty good for what it was.

No one said you had to read them, much less reply to them.
