Who's the Reno Marketing Genius Behind This Ad?

Every time I drive by this billboard down off Kietzske and Moana, here in Reno, I cringe. I just gotta wonder what ad Genius put this ad together.

Here, have a look, and tell me if you can tell me what’s wrong with it:

Bad Auto Dealership Billboard

    Gee, where do you start with this one…

    How about the big one. The fact they associated the sleazy car dealer with Fallon Auto Mall and not Kietzke or "Big City Motors" as their TV ads say.

    If I wasn’t a local and hadn’t seen their TV spots I would think that all the guys at Fallon Auto Mall look like him.

    That guy looks like a mix between a used car salesman and a pimp! All he’s missing is the fur coat and a cane…Straight out of the 70’s!
