what the fuck theres a goddamn mannequin in this car ad

Hooniverse Asks: What’s the weirdest car ad you’ve ever seen?

The internet is a wonderful place. While some friends and I were gawking at how far Buick Regal TourX values have fallen, one found a dealer ad with something a bit… odd. At first we thought the dealer had actually gotten a model to pose with the inventory for some reason. But upon closer look, no real human could have such a dark and empty gaze. It’s a mannequin. They actually got a mannequin and posed it next to the car and then made it their ad. And then they put it on the internet.

So that got me thinking. Because the internet is as vast and endless as our universe, there’s bound to be some ads that are even worse than this. I can’t think of any group of car nuts more well-equipped to track these down than our own readers. So pop a link or a screen shot to some of the weirdest car ads you’ve seen. And if you need a Buick Regal TourX in Wisconsin, I know a guy. Ask for the mannequin.

    I wonder if they change her wig based on what car they’re advertising? There’s The Cleopatra for… whatever that is; they could have The Ponytail for a Honda Fit, and Ponytail w/Baseball Hat for a Subaru Forester. But what would you pair with the A-Line Bob? The Betty Paige? The Bouffant?

    I’ll give $23,000 even and not a penny more. $23,250 if she’s included.
