Crazy. If Jesda ever opened up a transmission repair shop, I'd imagine it would be like that.

Fortunately, he has a day job to fall back on. Gotta admit, it's kinda catchy, though.

Doesn't instill much confidence. That's the last place I'd be taking MY car.

Bollywood comes to Burbank! I have to agree with Sub, it beats the hell out of a Flomax ad.

I'd go there. Very well executed over the top cheese with the right amount of wacky foreign personality. If he's good enough to produce or hire the right firm to produce this, then he is brilliant.

I've got a friend who drives one of those VW things (He used to have another). Then again, he drives...just about one of everything.

He's got a Hummer H1, has owned a series of antique Mini Coopers, a '65 Shelby Cobra, Lotus Elise...

And oh yeah, most notably, a 1990 Cadillac Hearse.

^^^ Glad the VW "Thing" caught your attention, Shamus! It's always good to be true to our priorities!

Actually, it caught a friend's attention. She likes those ever since I showed her this one that was for sale like...a year ago...


She also has a love for anything yellow. Like, imagine how CTSCHICK and Sting are with orange and multiply it by a thousand.

Jesda is one of my favorite characters in CF! If he opens up a transmission shop and produces an ad like this, he will definitely earn my businesses!

he would have had my business as a car lot if he had accepted my offer of of $500 for the $6000 grand ville worth $1000 or the non running fire truck for $100 and I got to pull it home with the land rover

I'd like to know why they're grinding a perfectly good 4L60E forward clutch hub.
That's just wrong!

Probably because it's a 4l60e.

I want this as a ring tone. It's so horrible, it's good.

Believe it or not the guy has very happy customers and actually his "creepy" ad could bring in new customers:

Indeed. It is from Rhett And Link on Youtube, who have gained moderate celebrity status for compiling stupid local commercials. I believe the most infamous would be taxidermist, Chuck Testa.

In fact, IIRC, Denny's (I think it was Denny's...maybe IHOP) actually has them in a bad commercial of their own, which features a song about Bacon.

Can't stop watching it. I'm gonna play it all day through the sound system at my shop.

Anyone else get the feeling he's got a "side business" going on there??

I'd pay 200 for the blonde to service my trans!!

I'll throw in another 50 for the shorts.
(for a shop rag of course)
