Same here... the local TV stations are in Ohio....
What I don't get? One side will advertise, only where their likely voters are listening (like the local red-neck talk radio), but the other side doesn't even run one ad... It's like there is no way to convince anyone that isn't in your "demographic", so don't even try... Just try to get your demographic to the polls..
Whatever happened to trying to sway voters?

Ha, I have seen that ad three times so far here. Not a big TV fan and there's less here than at home, but I like "Trodel Trupp" and "Achtung Kontrolle"

Yeah, you liked the sound but never quite fit in with the girls who listened to them.
#6552 of 7128 Nissan Schtick Stolen By Toyota
Nov 12, 2012 (4:47 pm)
You might remember the ad from a year or so back for the Nissan Maxima - the one where the Z-car owner gets the news from his wife that they're having a baby, and he goes and looks at his Z-car with a look of lament that he will have to get rid of it now, before he starts tugging on various parts of it to make it bigger and through the magic of Nissan's CGI special effects, turns it into a Maxima.
Now Toyota - maybe only in Canada, I don't know - is doing the exact same thing in an ad for the Tundra. Only in this case it's a mechanic-type guy, and he stretches the crankshaft, the brake rotors and calipers, and the body.
It was dumb concept for Nissan, and even dumber for Toyota to steal it. Any ad that relies on CGI is by definition bad, but this one approaches a new low.

A lot of the "active lifestyle" people are couch potato types who just want to put on a show. I still can't count the amount of ski racks I have seen on cars in Seattle, driven by people I know don't ski. A co-worker even wanted to put one on his Impreza, just for "the look". I told him it might get stolen quickly, if he caught my drift.
I think the full sized truck and SUV market hits a lot of couch potatoes.

What I've observed around here is the huge body-on-frame SUVs tend to appeal to heavier females, for whatever reason. Maybe the seats are wider/more comfortable?
