Honest Mobile Home Commercial

If, by some odd twist of fate I were in the market for a mobile home, I’d buy it from this guy:

Errol Morris calls it “The best commercial ever made” and Jason Kottke says, “It’s certainly the most honest advertising I’ve ever seen.”

Key selling point:

A bouncer in Birmingham hit me in the face with a crescent wrench five times and my wife’s boyfriend broke my jaw with a fence post. So if you don’t buy a trailer from me, it ain’t gonna hurt my feelings. So come on down to Cullman Liquidation and get yourself a home. Or don’t. I don’t care.

Haven’t we all been there?

    In all seriousness the guys behind this commercial are also behind several other hilarious “local commercials”.

    I used to work with a sales manager who was too fond of saying, “That’s an employee I want working for my competition.”

    Note how he cuts branches by holding a chain saw overhead with one hand while not using any eye protection. “Safety” is a concept they don’t quite grasp.

    Butt Drugs… I shop there.

    “Safety” is a concept they don’t quite grasp.

    Pete, what part of “safety is in the eye of the beholder” don’t you get?

    I love the guys who make these commercials. Their Red House commercial is a classic.
