The car dealer wouldn't be FX Caprera would it? A former teacher moved to Florida said they have the same commercials there.There is a trash company with pink cans lining the streets once a week. There is an exterminator with mouse ears, a tail and a silly rhyme on their vehicles trunk. There is a car dealer that is known for his endearing crazy commercials. A company that sells furniture has ads with an owner in a red cape rolling around on mattresses. A lawyer calls himself the "hammer" and swings a sledge thru a table. Over the years I have seen some characters and all sorts of apparent foolishness that works for other industries. These business turn themselves into local celebrity status. It sure isn't dignified but they are cashing lots of checks.
I don't remember seeing it for the trades though. Anybody seen nutty advertising for the trades in your area or a local celebrity goofball that surprisingly works for the company like a goofy mascot or something else odd or undignified?
