NAPA Creates Hilarious “Old Car” Commercials, Viral Craigslist Style

NAPA Auto Parts has created a series of hilarious commercials featuring old cars and using the style often mimicked on Craigslist to sell beaters. The commercials feature clunkers that are highlighted in low lighting, dynamic settings with voice overs and styling parodying many new car commercials we see everyday.

Check out these beauties! Starting with Grandma’s Car:

And The Tiny Beater:

And finally The Power Commuter:

The commercials were shot using actual vehicles listed for sale on a popular online classified advertising site (we all know this is corporate-speak for “Craigslist”).
