Local Television Station Wants to Sell Me Subprime Car Loan

Local Television Station Wants to Sell Me Subprime Car Loan

Last night I was watching television when the following advertisement came on.

What struck me was that my local television statement was so interested in marketing a subprime loan to viewers.

The ad lead me to the local television station site with a banner to the subprime lender.

800 Start Over CW 22

The car lender site led me to Getty Advertising.

Apparently Getty Advertising places advertising on local stations to help generate revenue for the stations through a partnership with the station.

This video below helps to further describe the 1-800-Start-Over pitch that I saw on my local station.

It’s not the ad for a subprime car lender that I found interesting, it was the leveraging of the television stations branding in conjunction with the advertiser that struck me. I’m not saying it is wrong, just a new approach to me.

Here is an example for a FOX and ABC stations promoting their cooperative law line.
