Oliver Jewellery's "Cash Man"

Any Toronto-nians out there will likely know what I mean when I say I want to change the channel every time an Oliver Jewellery commercial comes on the air.

Well this one has been around since 2008, and it defines the ugly of advertising.

Oliver is the "cash man" and he'll "give you money for your gold, oh yeah." Or at least that's what he sings while he dances around with four girls that I hope didn't include this on their resume.

It's got 122,117 views on YouTube (as of 10:08EST on 1/11/11) - but is this because it's a total joke of an ad? Probably. Will it get him much business? Probably not.
