Sometimes getting your car back is simply not enough.

Friday Fun! It's good to see a local advertiser with the guts to go for a "funny" ad campaign. I imagine these get a good response. If I lived in Oregon, this place would get my business (well, if they sold Hondas). Viva la Trunk Monkey!

Double post. What a naughty monkey!

Sigh. Different domain. Mefi search and google search failed on monkey and the domain. It didn't occur to me to search for it as trunkmonkey with no domain.

Almost not worth trying.

However, the old link no longer works, so use this new domain.

Sigh. It really does take the wind out of your sails when you TRY to search and you still fail.

I didn't see it the first time around, so thanks for the refresher! The bribe was the best.

It is an oldie, but a real goodie. I hadn't thought about it in yonks, though, and it's still funny.

Here's hoping they got some business out of it, if only to encourage others to try ads like this.

Cheer up, Ynoxas; it is better to have posted and then double-posted, then never to have posted at all. Or something like that.

I've seen this ad for several years around here for a local auto-dealer. Must be a syndicated ad or something. Anyhow, I definitely laughed the first few times I saw it.

Thanks, quiet. Been looking for those for a while. You wouldn't have links to those ads done by the people who did nutragrain (I feel Great!), would you?

Turnpike Films had to take all their corperate related ads down. You can still find the I Feel Great ad at

Suburban Auto Group still screws people over, good commercials or not.

Speaking of great ads from Oregon car dealerships, don't forget the Greatest Auto Dealer Commercial of All Time.
