Looks like their ad execs just discovered the technological miracle that is Windows 95. Way to be cool and "hip" guys!

Oh my. That's disgusting.

Reminds me of Reboot, or Beast Wars, or something...

Reboot was one weird cartoon. The only thing I liked was the flying 60s Chevrolet Impalas called "CPUs".
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

It reminds me of this cartoon they show on Fox Business on Saturday mornings called "The Centsables." Cheap animation from India.

ReBoot was ok - my kid self loved it. The bad CGI was excusable, it was probably the best they could do at the time (it was 1994 after all).

I absolutely cannot stand RockAuto commercials.
To think someone has a computer and would make commercials like that is simply...well...childish and insulting. Why would I even *begin* to think they could get me the correct car parts?
I'm thinkin' this is the 'RockAuto Aptitude Testing Facility' where the successful new employees are the others not being asked about complex matters, like, oh, say...'buckets'...

This one is even worse than the animation style they used in the shock absorber one. I agree with Pa. You're trying to sell me on the tech-savvy nature of your business, making yourself out to be the cyber answer to all my car parts needs, but then you throw stone knives and bear skins at me.

On a side note, Rockauto, the "guy behind the counter tapping at his computer trying to find the right part" from the other spot I mentioned? He's pretty likely an ASE certified technician (retired or laid off), as a lot of parts places hire those guys. Just sayin. He probably knows more about a car part than anyone at an aggregate website that likely uses some algorithm to find the cheapest price on a part online and 3rd party's you up.

Am I crazy, or do the expressions on the two guys look a little bit like that Ability ad we all hate? 

I guess the horrible amateurishness of this is supposed to suggest this is not a huge, sophisticated rip-off outfit. Actually, I understand from my own mechanic that they're pretty good. But still -- it's one of those things like nonprofit community groups not wanting to look too fancy in their fund-raising literature, to the point of making the copy look typewritten with Wite-Outs and everything. Seriously, they do that.

That animation is so 1987! That doggy could be a poster pet for abused animals.
I approve this message.
