The better way to buy and sell cars,

Agency: 
Published/Aired: 
March 2013
Description: 

autoTRADER.ca is the most effective way to buy or sell a used car. People who don't know about it would need to go to pretty extreme lengths in order to get the same results. This campaign dramatizes the lengths that buyers and sellers go to – whether it's breaking into a complete stranger's car to solicit an owner review, or robbing a bank to get the most exposure for a used car – to illustrate beyond a doubt that autoTRADER.ca is the better way to buy and sell cars.

Funny concept. Dragged down by the hard sell.

Also, "The better way to... " is copywriting at its laziest. You'd think one of the three writers could have crafted something a bit better.
