Trunk Monkey: Best. Car. Ad. Ever.

I used to create car ads. There. I’ve admitted it. Pity there’s no Advertisers Anonymous I could go through, with a twelve-step program to atone for my sins. (“Hi. I’m Brad…and it’s been two years, six months and twelve days since I’ve directed a new or used car ad for a local dealership.” “HI, BRAD!”) Still, there are believe it or not, good, creative ads out there for local car dealers. Witness the one above, which kind makes up for a lot of the crap you see on TV. And yes, before you ask, PeTA did howl in protest over the use of a trained chimp in the ads. (If you’d like to see the rest of the series, search YouTube for “Trunk Monkey.” They’re hilarious.)

Since hitting my mid-40’s, I’ve had to contend with less-than-perfect vision. It’s been a big adjustment. Glasses fog up, get in the way, and require that I hold my head just right to be able to see close-up or far away. In short, seeing with glasses is a bitch. Especially when dealing with a gun. You can see the target in focus, or the sites. But not both – at least at the same time. Until now. Watch the video for what I think is some exciting news on this very subject.

How many of you have ever wanted to shoot your cell phone? I know I have. Remember what life was like before cell phones? Getting in your car meant “windshield time,” where you could be alone with your thoughts. Being “off the grid” wasn’t unusual back then – you could have hours at a time where you couldn’t be reached. I call mine my electronic leash. And I like my cell phone. (My cell phone company on the other hand…)

Die Cell Phone! Die!
