    I was watching a few minutes of a special on marvin gaye, and they were talking to an old friend of his....mel farr. I burst out laughing when they showed him cause he runs a bunch of car dealerships in detroit, and had some of the fucking cheesiest comercials I've ever seen. including guest spots with the really desperate members of the jackson family. I laughed so hard cause its a name I havent heard in ages. I've never lived in detroit, but up until about 4-5 years ago we got our NBC and CBS feeds from detroit...so we were exposed to the wonder that is mel farr...
    I know theres a few detroit people on here who know...anyways...I doubt anyone found that funny but me...
    feel free to talk about your local "mel farr" or any other nutjob store owners with cheap cheezy commercials. I know rochester has a few...I forget the name, but theres a supermarket commercial where the owner kicks out "mr. high prices" which is some guy in what looks like a bad mexican wrestling costume...

    I'm sure none of you care, but I ran across these while youtubing and it made me laugh. I knew I had posted about it long ago.

    LOL. It's funny you made a thread about this guy, I forgot all about him. He doesn't make commercials anymore. I'm pretty sure he sold the dealerships.
    This thread = WTF? LOL

    props on the ancient resurrection, those videos are hilarious.
    when i was growing up the worst weirdest low budget commercial that stands out in memory was "space farms zoo and museum" campy crapy strange. i youtubed and searched around but to no avail. it was some shitty petting zoo in jersey i think.

    i remember these, dont know if they were nation wide but somewhat related.

    i also vaguely remember a commercial for a different car dealership that contained a cartoon cowboy dude & his dog, and had a catchy little jingle that went something like this.. "here dog, c'mon dog! me & my dog's gon go down to telegraph roooooad, right nooooooow, get a good deeeeeaaaaal."
