Unintentionally Funny Local Commercial: Gary’s Gutters

Gary's GuttersIt’s time for another edition of Unintentionally Funny Local Commercial—the original LWB feature where I find commercials that are so bad they are actually funny.

Today’s Unintentionally Funny Local Commercial comes from Gary’s Gutter Service. Gary’s Gutter Service offers a full line of gutter, chimney and roofing services to the Rockland County area in New York.

Gary decided the best way to promote his company was to do something that has never been done before: A cheesy rap by a white guy attempting to be hip.

Check out the video….

So…what are the key ingredients to a cheesy white guy rap commercial? Let’s go down the checklist and see if Gary’s Gutters meets the criteria…

• Middle-aged white guy dressed up in stereotypical black rapper attire from the 1980s? CHECK

• A level of awful dancing that only a white person can achieve? CHECK

• Graffiti writing for the graphics? CHECK

• Lyrics that are cheesy and some that don’t even really rhyme? CHECK

I also enjoyed how he borrowed a line from Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”… probably because it’s the only rap song he actually knows.

And today only we have a bonus Unintentionally Funny Local Commercial and it features more white people trying to rap. Once again it was an epic fail. It features North Bergen, New Jersey Mayor Nick Sacco pushing a rap video in an effort to get re-elected. I apologize in advance for this song being in your head the rest of the day.

I can’t decide which one is worse. What do you think?

If you find a commercial that you think is worthy, email it to me here.

Kudos to Mrs. Sacks for the tip!

    I’d be concerned about the first one if my name wasn’t Deuce.

    Also, rhyming “from” and “son” is……pretty bad. I vote Sacco worse. Jersey stinks, and gutters are important.
