Silas Deane Pawn Is Your Pawn Shop

Like anything else, this ad is the result of a long chain of events. First these guys got their own business. Then they discovered that they could both do Schwarzenegger impressions. Then they decided to use that in a local commercial. Then they found a local advertising agency that did not have courage to tell them that that was a terrible idea. And at some point in there they got your haircut. But while it’s always interesting to imagine what the world would be like if just one of those causal events hadn’t happened, at the end of the day, imagine in one hand, try to find your car keys to ‘get down here now, get down here now’ in the other and see which fills up with money from selling Grandma’s gold first.
