This 1958 advertisement for Dodge Trucks tells a story, but I frankly have no idea what it is. You have a truck, and fencing, and what looks to be bags of fertilizer or sakrete. And you’re going to the bank. Okay, so the message is that you can do work and save money with a Dodge truck. Got it. But the newsboy on the bike? At the other drive-up teller window? He’s there for what reason? I don’t know, but I am sure you can think of a funny, clever, or perhaps genuine reason why this would make sense in a truck ad. In any case, leave your quip, caption or comment below.
Last week’s Buick Century ad was definitely cringe-worthy, and you guys made the most of it. Alff took the top spot with, “When life gives you lemons, make colonnade.” In second place was 1977ChevyTruck with his comment, “The large crowd dissipated pretty quickly after someone pointed out that the car said ‘Free Spirit’, and not ‘Free Spirits’, like they were hoping.”
