We all have them; local business, television ads.
For instance, here in Denver, we have some of the following:
"Dealin Doug", car salesman. Your television can be at a decent decibal level and when he comes on you can hear the obnoxious ad from 3 rooms away. In fact, rumour has it the FDA had to address this issue because of many complaints.
"Rockies Auto". Silly actors with silly skits for used cars.
"Mattress King". A young kid, whom we have watched grown through the years, presumably the kid of the owner of the local franchise. Nice kid. I used to feel sorry for him but I bet now he gets a lot of attention from the "ladies" now that he seems college age. He says "Nobody beats the king, nobody". (So does Dealin Doug by the way; as mentioned in another ad above).
"American Furniture Warehouse". Jake Jabs. These ads have been around forever. Has wild animals and such lying around furniture. Throughout the years, uses family members as actors. There is a local joke around here we used to tell as kids. "Why shouldn't you sit on a couch at American Furniture Warehouse"? Answer: "Because Jake "jabs".
I guess you have to be a local if you aren't laughing.
"Good Times" (fast food drive-thru). The guy's voice is really "nasal" and obnoxious. More radio rather than television.
"Shane Company". Tom Shane, the owner, very monotone radio voice. Been around for years.
NOTE: All companies listed are actually quite reputable around here. Regardless of their marketing style, obviously, they make an impression. After all, here I am posting a silly thread about the subject.
I'm just curious what local celebs/ads are indigenious in your neck of the woods?
