Buying a car below sticker price, is exciting to say the least! A Long Island Hyundai dealer in Queens, NY isn’t afraid to “play” off that excitement in a double entrendre or quadruple entrendre TV ad.

Its “auto-erotic” ad shows a doc and a buxom blond discussing what seems to be the persistent erection of her hubby. Don’t you hate when that happens. “He’s definitely excited,” the doctor declares. To which the woman responds: “They said if it lasted more than four hours, we should call the doctor.”

Then there’s the BIG reveal. The camera pans to the man on the examining table only to show him “stiff as a board” holding tightly onto a wooden (of course it is) steering wheel.

Some are saying it’s way too much and inappropriate for TV. I say it’s clever and definitely gets your attention. Way to drive home a “hard” sell. Just don’t buy the extended warranty.

Hyundai is definitely getting points lately for fun ads. Like the one featuring a “Not Your Average Joe” car-salesman dancing around on the showroom floor.

Sometimes you just have to go “balls out” to seal the deal. Right fellas?!
