This Looks Familiar: 5 Commercials Weber Chevrolet Should Rip Off Next

Categories: Adverstising

If Weber is OK with drawing inspiration from other commercial campaigns, then we know a few successful campaigns he should try:

1. Flea Market Montgomery

We'd love to see George Weber rapping in a spiffy suit about his cars. This commercial is so outrageous and yet so successfully catchy that it's guaranteed to work. "It's just like, it's just like, it's just like a Chevy Cruze."

2. Life Call

"I've fallen and I can't get up!" Then the old lady pushes the button to call...George Weber in a big ol' Chevy truck or something. She swoons. We all swoon. We'd pay to see that.

3. Hardee's Fantasies

Daily RFT asked Weber if he'd consider reworking a Hardee's or Carl's Jr. commercial, where scantily clad beauties stuff giant burgers in their faces with plenty of suggestive spillage. He asked us if he'd have to wear a bathing suit...and then said no.

4. GEICO

Money with eyes. The lizard. The Pillsbury Dough Boy. Let Weber recreate all of the GEICO "mascots"! We think he'd make a great caveman.

5. Old Spice

Terry Crew's hyper-masculine yet crazy awkward commercials always make us laugh and tilt our heads in confusion at the same time. Put Weber on a white horse, backward. Put him on a wave runner and send him through a kitchen. This could be amazing.

Hes getting even MORE press. I bet hed like to thank RFT. I think the commercials are clever and cute. And, Webber is a good dealership. If you like Chevys.

Yeah, and AT&T ripped off the concept from Bill Cosby's "Kids Say the Darndest Things" who had ripped it off from Art Linkletter's show of the same name. Scandalous!

I think they're hilarious, especially the one that ended with "everybody hates Oklahoma" during the Cotton Bowl

It's an OBVIOUS rip off of the AT&T ads but I think it's entertaining and it might even be effective. I agree with Weber that most of the dealership ads are the same; just lots of noise about the cheapest car on the lot.

It's blatant infringement. Personally I don't like the AT&T commercials. However; AT&T paid an ad agency to create a concept and produce commercials for them. It wasn't a parody, it wasn't a nod or a tribute to AT&T, it was a rip off start to finish.

It is so terrible! That's why people pay actors that don't look like Frankenstein

You can't trademark an idea or concept, only specific things like a logo or phrase.
