Holy Shift: Creepy George will “Fix your transmission”

It’s got the tackiness and female objectification of the Beacon Plumbing’s ‘fix my pipes’ lady:

Sure, it’s driving word of mouth, but would an ad like this make you more or less apt to hire Arlen Transmission?

Credit where it’s due: “Holy Shift” was a comment by Pavos Bannout in the video’s YouTube comments.
