I'm OK with the CarMax ads. From my seat, Ad's that don't trigger an emotion are forgetful. Emotions cut in both directions, ANY emotion created by an ad is a win.

Proof that 'Fingernails on a chalkboard' sells cars

^ Ha ha... good ol' Billy Fuccillo. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Fuccillo (actually, that article needs to be edited. It's "it's gonna be huge," not "it's huge.")

I used to work on all of their sites and paid search and SEO. Small world.

I think DriveTime is doing some funny and effective things. Reminds me of a Wes Anderson flick.
