Unintentionally Funny Local Commercial: Two Brothers Scrap Metal

It’s time for another installment of “Unintentionally Funny Local Commercials”—the original LWB feature which takes a look at a local commercial that is just so bad, it’s actually funny. Today’s local commercial is for 2 Brother’s Scrap Metal, a company in New York that obviously sells scrap metal. Here’s the commercial…

The commercial starts out with an all too familiar situation: two teenage girls trying to figure what to do with their scrap metal.  What an age-old conundrum!  Man if I had a dime for every time two teenage girls struggled to figure out a way to use excess scrap metal, I’d have well… a dime!—Because this is the only time in the history of the universe, that two young girls ever had this conversation. 

I’m willing to bet the guy in the commercial is one of the brothers that make up 2 Brother’s Scrap Metal and the two girls are his daughters.  My guess is this is probably how the idea came about…

Dad: Hey girls. I’m thinking of making a commercial for the family business which will be played on local television repeatedly for two years straight to the annoyance of New Yorkers everywhere

Girls: Cool Daddy! Can we be in it!

Dad: Sure! Anything for my girls! Let me just come up with an idea.

(Weeks go by as Dad ponders script)

Dad: I’ve got it! Vicky, you complain to Jan about all the scrap metal you have lying around, Jan will ask me for advice and BOOM, I hit you with some knowledge in a thick New York accent, while I’m watching television! BRILLIANT! This is Oscar worthy! Let’s film it right now in our kitchen!

Girls: Yay!

    Wow, keep the local commercials coming. I was a girl once and me and all my teenage friends only talked about balls.
    If only we had your blog to guide us…

    Thanks Yermom. If you see any good commercials feel free to send it to me and I’ll be sure to make fun of it.

    “This company obviously sells scrap metal”… no, it obviously buys scrap metal, if you’re going to make fun of something at least get it right… and yes this commercial is ridiculous but you are equally ridiculous for making a statement that is “obviously” not consistent with the objective of Two Brothers Scrap Metal’s commercial

    The only thing obvious to me, Bill, is that you are a complete tool for writing that comment. Lighten up. Go troll somewhere else.
