Another reason to love YouTube: if it didn’t exist, I might have missed this commercial for Route 125 Auto featuring the Papel-Bot. The dealership’s located in New Hampshire, which is prolly why I don’t remember this from NESN — it was likely one of those “locally targeted” ads that only hits a select viewing area. Nonetheless, it is quite the spectacle, falling somewhere between a high-school theatre presentation and a backyard puppet show. Yet the Bot redeems himself quite nicely.
That said, the whole affair is a far cry from this masterpiece for H.E.B. fully-cooked meats, featuring Andy Pettitte, Roger Clemens and their respective missus. I could totally see the four of them and their eighteen kids hanging out, eating meat, firing guns into the air for no apparent reason, and making fun of the poolguy who “seems Mexican.”
