    We are all watching the same car salesman!

    Around my neck of the woods, we have an annoying car dealer that spams our TV stations with 3-5 new commercials a week. It almost gets to the point of insanity. Everytime you turn on the TV, here's another brand new commercial. This dealer always has his sidekick with him named Tom. Tom is a fast talking car salesman that sometimes stars in the commercials by himself.

    So...

    At the end of September, I was vacationing in Orlando FL and watching the TV quite a bit due to Hurricane Jeanne starting a direct path for the city. During one of the breaks, a commercial comes on for Toyota of Orlando...and I would swear that I'm watching this SAME care salesman Tom pitching his one-liners for incredible deals on Toyotas in Orlando. I call the wife over, but she says that she doubts that there is a salesman flying from NY to FL constantly filming commercials. To be honest, it sounds a little ridiculous to me...

    However, as I get home (escaping the closing of the Orlando airport by 15 minutes BTW), the commercial blitz starts again on TV..here's Tom doing a new commercial everytime I turn on the frickin' TV. So I go to my old friend the internet and start snooping. I find out the guys name in Orlando is Tom Park. Then I find out that the guy on my TV is also named Tom Park!!

    A little more snooping and I finally stumble across the holy grail: an article on a website called SouthCoastToday.com out of Syracuse NY that unveils the truth. Tom Park is a spokesman for hire, filming commercials for dealerships in 18 different domestic markets including Buffalo, Dallas, Orlando, Oklahoma City, and Las Vegas!

    Read all about this clever salesman here:

    So the question is, how many of us are watching the exact same guy selling local cars on our TV every day??

    Pretty ingenious I'd say! Bet he makes pretty good considering the number of commercials he can do in such a short time.

    Never heard of the guy, but then, I don't watch TV very often...

    I would buy this from him, though:

    Ugh! I live an hour south of Syracuse, NY. We get carpet-bombed by ads he does for an auto mall there (Fucillo, as a matter of fact... the first one in the linked article).

    Bear knows the one...

    Did you watch the video that was linked with that photo? You'd have to be crazy to stand in front of a car burning out like that...
