Ah….regional advertising. Isn’t it the best?  Check this spot for Eastern Motors, a company that has somehow managed to wrangle some serious star powers to spice up it’s otherwise sub-par advertising.

If Nike tried to put this much sports power in one ad, it’d cost like a gajillion dollars.

What the? LaVar Arrington?

I’m thinking that the owners of Eastern Motors must have some seriously Hooveresque files out there to bring in Clinton Portis, Kevin Jones, and Carmelo Anthony (among others).

Special thanks to gayracula for the clip.

    My question is.. does Shaggy (Not the cartoon version) know they are making his song sound better??

    That is pure genius. Nothing instills more faith in an insurance company when their policies are crapped out by a giant bird!

    I guess that gives new meaning to pulling a number out of your ass.

    Ha ha ha! “And many vans!” Awesome.

    Seriously, that’s brilliant. I’ve not heard of any of these folks, but that’s had me in dangerous levels of laughter territory at work here. And I thought our ads for Yes! Car Credit were bad…
