Beeple-bopple-boop

Does using Transformers to sell cars actually work? Is there actually one person on this earth who thinks: "Damn! I sure love me some Transformers. I love Transformers so much that I'm going to sink thirty-fucking-seven-fucking-thousand dollars into a Buick Lucerne."

Transformers are for people of my generation or younger. Buick Lucernes are for people of my grandparents' generation or older. And it's a fucking car! It's not a toy! I don't like the idea of someone driving around in their Lucerne making little Transformer noises as they drive into a house.

I am torn between who I want to injure more: the person who thought up this marketing scheme, or the person who will buy into it.

Trust me, the TV commercial is dumb as hell. We were amazed that Transformers would endorse a particular brand of car. I mean, how insidious is that?
