Please monkey around with my car commercial

I needed a laugh today and nothing can more funny than a bad car commercial. I've only seen a handful of creative car commercials. My favorite, and some what controversial, is the Trunk Monkey. As always, humor is selective. Some people find it funny and some do not.

What do you think?



Here is a really bad, locally produced commercial. At least they tried to be different...creepy different.



Now, here's a local Dayton, Ohio car commercial.



There is nothing wrong with this spot, but is it memorable or engaging?

I've heard some people state that even if the commercial is annoying, it's still doing its job. I'm not sure I believe that. I understand the concept, but I have never run into anyone (no pun intended) who has actually shopped somewhere from a commercial that annoys them.

Have you? If so, I'd love to hear about it.

Visual Media Concepts is fascinated with the idea of creating engaging content for businesses and organizations. Tell us your wacky ideas and we promise not to produce an annoying spot.
