This cheap and crazy golf commercial will make you laugh
By Alex Myers
Forget being flashy and all the other bells and whistles most commercials have these days. When Mike Mixson does an ad for his business, Mike's Golf Store in Chattanooga, Tenn., he keeps a low budget -- and gets right to the point.
Mixson yells, "We buy golf clubs!" eight times in the 41-second clip that caught the attention of Adweek. Well, nine, if you count the time he forgets to say the word "clubs." Check it out if you want a good chuckle:
No word on whether the video has helped sales at Mike's Golf Store, but it is up to more than 130,000 views on YouTube. Mixson sounds like a broken record, but he might just be a guerilla marketing genius. Well, that, and a guy who buys golf clubs, of course.
