It’s been riding the local airwaves since September. I’ve caught glimpses of it on TiVo fast forward. I’ve actually seen the whole thing live a time or two, but only on mute. But Kenny Smith sent a link and now my eyes have seen and my ears have heard. And I’m still not exactly sure what’s happening here. (Can’t see the video? Try here.)
Jim is deliriously excited to take advantage of a great deal on a new Camry until he’s violently reminded that the car is actually for his lady friend—that’s the best I can figure. But it doesn’t really matter. What’s important about this commercial for Lynch Toyota is that it’s yet another example of how the adaptability of Rod Bramblett’s call of the Kick Six will help extend the pop culture shelf life of the game into infinity, at least locally.
Lynch Toyota of Auburn is going to give Jim a last second chance to take advantage of their incredible deal on a new 2014 Toyota Camry with up to $6,000 off MSRP or 0% for 60 months. Jim has the new Camry in his sites! There’s the toss! It’s looking good! Then… WHAM!! The key is taken in the most unbelievable fashion!
They’re not going to be able to keep the crowds off the lot with these prices! So, come on out to Lynch Toyota of Auburn today!
What it lacks in plot, it makes up for in authenticity. Yep, that’s the real Rod doing the voice over… and hopefully finally being able to cash in a bit.
“Once the words come out of my mouth, they don’t belong to me anymore. That’s OK,” Bramblett told CBS’ Jon Solomon last month for a story on the one year anniversary of the greatest football game ever. “Yeah, it would be nice to get a little bit of money for every time they play it. I’d be able to retire. But that’s not a priority for me at all. The aftermath of that call has helped my career in so many ways.”
