Aces Casino Blog: Still More "Oscar Moments" From Our Favorite TV Commercials - "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" (And Believe Me, It Gets REAL Ugly)


No doubt about it - The Aces Casino Entertainment staff LOVES us some YouTube.  I mean, seriously - Where else could you go to instant review some piece of footage that you just saw for the first time on some form of media player, then go right to the ol' YouTube web site to run it as many more times as needed?   Color this employee of the best Orange county casino party company on the west coast truly impressed, if not hopelessly hooked on YouTube phonics.

A while back (Ed. Note: A LOONG while back, to be exact), we handed out some "YouTube Oscars" here in our Aces Casino Blog to some VERY worthy recipients, some of the more creative people on the 'Web, who shared some truly hilarious video footage.  So, since we were sitting right in the second week of our seemingly endless "31 Blog Posts in 31 Days" marathon, we thought to ourselves, "Hey!  What better time is there to post some MORE virtual Oscar winners from YouTube then right now?"

Ask and you shall receive, I always say.

We'll call this feeble attempt at padding our blog-posting stats "YouTube Oscars, Volume 2 -TV Commercials - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly."

As always, we'll start with the "Good," and in this case, our vote HAD to go to that hilarious 30-second spot from GEICO.  Keep up the good work, Gecko-guys.  Funny stuff...


"GUESS what DAY it is...Mike-Mike-Mike-Mike-Mike..."

The Silver Medal for funniest commercial was also a GEICO piece, the one with Eddie Money running his own travel agency.  Those ad execs are on a roll.... Hey, why not show THAT commercial as well?
"Uhhh, four tickets, remember?."  Too Funny.

Next up, the "Bad."  We spotted this one when we looked in the search box for "Awful Used Car Commercials."  Tellin' ya, ya gotta love YouTube.  This incredible off-color gem was first on the list, from Charlie Clark Nissan in Brownsville, Florida...."Holy Poor Taste, Batman...."  Phh, check it out, they can't even spell "Tonto" correctly.  Ya gotta be kidding me.... (Ed. Note: The video commercial slated for this spot has been removed by the man that made it.   Those looking for the link to the originally offensive "Tonto" video by Charlie Clark Nissan can find it here.)

And, now, without further adieu, "The Ugly," and I DO MEAN UG-LY.  We had to reach back into the 1960's for this one, but it was worth it.  We had heard about this classic rant by a salesman on LIVE TV, no less, so we searched the bottom of every barrel we could get our hands on, and finally found this Bay Area used car salesman that must have had enough when it came to selling those broken down jalopies for Ralph Williams Ford on Bayshore....  A warning to those of you with sensitive ears -- This salesman fires off round after round of expletives at what had to soon be his ex-boss.  This may be one of the reasons that the car lots don't do live spots any longer...This clip has VERY harsh language....

 Next time, Ralph, give him his commission check, will ya?  (Caution: X-Rated.)

Do I have the greatest job in the world, or what?  I'm getting paid to list the favorite YouTube vids from our crazy staff here at Aces Casino Entertainment, the top Orange county casino night party company in SoCal.   Well, that's all for today.  I'd best get workin' on tomorrow's fluff-piece for the parakeet paper.  As they say at PTI on ESPN, "We'll try to do better next time."   See you tomorrow!
