Horrible Local Ads

Recommended Posts

This is a continuation of an AV Club Q&A from a few years back, but seems perfectly off topic. Does anyone else have any favorite horrible local ads from childhood, or even continuing today. I'm essentially using this as an excuse to post the wonder than is the old Laverdiere's Drug Store Halloween ad from the 80's/90's. Perhaps just bad some bad accents/shady production quality to most of the country, but a thing a beauty if you grew up in Maine during that time.

I am really upset that I can't find a video of it but we had a place called Mattress Factory in Dayton, Ohio that had the best jingle ever. They sang it with such effort and quality "Mattress factory saves you more! Our factory is our stooooooore!"

Not horrible, I guess, but nostalgic. Although there are a few odd jungle noises in the background.

Heres a local Honda commercial from the 80's. This guy scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. FYI- A few years ago this guy sued a plastic surgeon for "stealing" his wife . No joke.
P.S He runs Honda dealerships and his wifes name is Ronda. How long do you think he searched for her?

We've got a lawyer here in Vegas who does his ads all awkward and stilted, exactly like Michael Showalter in the "John Law" State sketch... Can't find a clip, unfortunately (couldn't even find a clip of the State sketch... probably because nobody in that sketch dipped their balls in anything).
