Local Commercials GONE WILD
April 16, 2010 7:07 PM   Subscribe

Rhett and Link love local commercials, and, with a sponsorship by MicroBilt, they want to visit your town to make one! Don't worry [NSFW], they've had experience doing this kind of thing in the past. • Rhett and Link's website and YouTube channel are chock full of fun stuff besides commercials--why, they even helped me learn all about regional variations of southern BBQ![ many previous appearances ]

So cause I'm someone who watches comedy central at 2 in the morning, I am often accosted by the local strip club ads which are sad and strange on several levels. Giant women dancing in hot pants? A woman in a full ballgown giving an alien a lap dance? What is clearly a mother is 2 trying to sum up the enthusiasm to whisper "sophisticated.adult.entertainment"?. It's not just bad or cheap, it's so startlingly off what a commercial should be.

The Whelk, I would like to see these commercials of which you speak. They sound surreal.

I'm going to pre-empt all comments right now and say that I don't care what local commercial you want to call to our attention. The classic "Fuck You, Baltimore!" spot is the proverbial creme de la creme of local TV advertising.
