Anyone watching the Super Bowl in Savannah, Georgia on Sunday would have been exposed to a two minute flash of insanity, as a bizarre local commercial was aired for a local personal injury lawyer.
Jamie Casino's truly insane, none-more-metal advert soon went viral thanks to the internet, but it reminded us of the crazy world of local commercials; usually low budget and therefore relying on 'creative' ways to get their message across. We've bravely dug our way through YouTube to find 20 of the strangest - naturally, we start with that sledgehammer-wielding epic from Mr Casino.
What can you say about this epic masterpiece? Andrew Castle, this is for when sorry isn't OK.
J. Michael Gallagher Law Office
And they say divorce can get nasty.
Frankie & Johnny's Furniture
First 20 seconds normal. Last 40 seconds, mindblowing. DFS have got nothing on these guys.
Pizza N Go
This is like pizza hypnotism. 'Makin' the pizza...makin' the pizza...you are feeling very sleepy....very hungry...makin' the pizza'. We do actually want a pizza now though.
Christopher Knight for School Board
We would vote for you Christopher, you total geeky hero.
Eyetech: 'taking video to the next level'. As long as the level you start at is a blank screen.
Sleep Centre of the SouthWest
If you really want to take your video to the next level, hire whoever created the amazing CGI on this advert.
Featuring a rap magician. Just one letter away from the truth there.
Flea Market Montgomery
If you want real hip hop, check out the guys at Montgomery. To be fair, this track is better than Lil' Wayne's entire recorded output.
Golden Gate Funeral Home
If we died and went to heaven, we like to think we'd be too busy enjoying our new surroundings to admire the new 300 at our funeral back on earth. Surely they have hoverboards and stuff up there, right?
And you thought Eddie the Eagle was a laughing stock.
In the words of its creators, they were given "two weeks and zero budget" to make a commercial. The results are lo-fi weirdness at their very best.
Second Sole Sports
Someone's worked out how to use 'echo chamber' on their effects unit haven't they?
There is no part of this which isn't creepy and/or terrifying.
Because nothing says 'sewage removal' more than a Frank Sintra-esque lilting swing track.
Martin Furniture Store
He is clearly not on the same planet as the rest of us.
Right Price Furniture
This man may actually be mentally ill.
How big is it mate? Medium? Large? Surely it can't go any bigger than that?
You can laugh all you want at this ridiculous advert, but that shop does actually look utterly amazing.
