Funny thing is, they are.
I was critical of the Prius C interior and the salesman gave me the whole recycled-materials-used spiel. I felt like saying they should use new and unused stuff.
Here comes the Hang Over - now I'm getting those follow-up calls, "So, when are you going to come in to buy a car?" The Hyundai guy doesn't even remember I want the pano without the leather/huge rims.

Not the propulsion system, etc.
Never give your number, just your email. That will suffice for them, and you can filter out the nagging.

Caller ID works wonders. I just have to be on guard.

This is almost 4 seperate ads.
The Volt one feels Prius-ish.
Spark matching colors is neat, but I'm not sure where all the shopping comes from. Maybe they shop too much so a Spark is all they can afford to drive?
Sonic and skate board connection comes from the Rob Dyrdek barrel roll.
Corvette part is cool.
Impala has a Bond-ish guy but it goes by quick.
A little all over the place? What do you guys think?

One of those "free" numbers works good for that. I have a GrandCentral* number that rings and if the caller doesn't announce, it goes to voice mail. Or I can just dump 'em to voice mail.
(*number still works okay in spite of Google buying them; no ads yet but they probably track everything).

Yeah, I have Google Voice and I can do that as well.
With one call so far I'm not too worried.

Latest Ford commercial is with this guy who has done other Ford commercials. Here he is again wearing his cap. Inside a Ford dealership building obviously, with no sun or rain and wearing a stupid baseball cap. He is talking to a woman, who is not wearing a cap or hat. How dumb is that. The woman does not need a cap or hat but a guy, maybe a macho guy, needs a cap. A cap for what? So, maybe Ford can defend this by saying the guy was not wearing his cap backwards. The commercial loses legitimacy by a guy wearing a cap and disrespecting a woman. Is this guy bald and trying to protect his image while disrespecting women?

Maybe you have to know who he is from his shows. Watch Dirty Jobs when you get a chance.
