No fan of Olds ads

To the Editor,

The Oldsmobile testimonial ads are especially terrible.

The ads play like a late-night, money-making pyramid scheme or psychic hotline infomercials.

The people you see in these ads are, well, for lack of a better word, yucky.

I don't want anything they endorse.

It's like the next thing they're going to testify to is generic macaroni and cheese, or washing out, and reusing, disposable plastic SOLO cups.

Really, just awful.

If that's who buys an Oldsmobile, I don't want to join that club.

No wonder sales are down.
