For years, commercials for the New Jersey-based Brad Benson Auto Group, operated by the former New York Giants offensive lineman, have been running on New York-area radio stations, specifically, WFAN, the New York Giants’ radio flagship.
Due to the ribald and controversial nature of the ads, they’re ones that Phil Mushnick loves to hate (then again, he probably could make a case against photosynthesis, so that’s probably not saying much).
But apparently, these spots aren’t just running on WFAN. They’ve actually been running on Pandora, the popular Internet music service, for years.
And if you thought the outrage against the spots airing on WFAN as brutal, listen to what Pandora users are saying about them:
What these folks don’t realize is that their complaining about the ads translates into free publicity for Brad Benson’s car dealership – specifically, the one in which he talk about his new “forty-foot erection” – i.e. one of the goal posts from the old Giants Stadium that has been erected at his Hyundai outlet in South Brunswick, New Jersey.
One that has now made its way into Pandora’s box.
