The Weekender: Stupid, Yet Awesome Commercials

We leave you this weekend with a nice treat from the great folks at The Consumerist. I read this blog almost every day, and whenever they roll out a new "Great Moment in Commercial History," it's time for celebration. Here's a few of my favorites.

This is from The Mattress Ranch. You must assume that if a store considers itself a ranch full of mattresses, you're in for a wild ride. A crazed old man invites you to come see him at the fair, and then dances as if having a convulsion. Not only is he dancing, but so are cute kids and a creepy enlarged likeness of the old man! The Serta sheep ain't got crap on this.

Now we call on the credit pimp to get you in a car. No credit? Bad credit? No problem! We'll get you financed in a '98 Oldsmobile Silhouette financed over 128 months!

Detroit isn't only the home of makers of overpriced cars, but it's also home to transvestite exterminators!

This one isn't too exciting until the end. Fast forward if you like, you won't be missing much.

The way this man pronounces Christmas is worth suffering blindness after seeing his demonic grin.

I would put more, but that would just defeat the purpose of visiting The Consumerist.
