I realize many people don’t watch TV commercials anymore, or at least try to avoid them. Many commercials are dumb and annoying. However, every once in a while someone creates an awesome commercial, and the one below may be the best commercial of all-time. The premise is AutoTrader helping Bo and Luke Duke find a new car.
If you aren’t familiar with the characters, they’re from The Dukes of Hazzard, which was an awesome TV show of the ’80s that you should check out. It was much better than the movies.
And there’s no way they’d replace the General Lee, even with a Viper. Imagine how the Viper would fare after one of those jumps… Admittedly, the original cars didn’t always survive, but they actually did the jumps and landed them.
[Update: Apparently AutoTrader pulled the video because of the confederate flag conspiracy. What predictable knee-jerk overreaction. Anyway, the video is updated to another source now. It’s still a cool commercial. And I don’t think you can even see a confederate flag in the whole video. So why was it censored? Think about it…]
