Dealership has laugh with ads

A car dealership in the US has always been serious about having lots of fun in creating adverts for its business and boasts a whole catalogue of comical campaigns.

Clift Buick GMC in Adrian, Michigan, features a series of funny commercials on its website with owner Gary Clift happy to ham it up for the camera.

Playing detective, dressing up as a cowboy, or wearing a disguise are just some of his antics in the slapstick adverts.

In the one below he is surrounded by a series of characters as he catches a baby, hands out some cash, brushes off a goofy magician and punches a would-be robber out of the way.

It’s an unusual approach to marketing so watch below to see what you think, or to view some of Clift’s other adverts, click here.
