Motel 6 Commercials—Save a Buck

Published March 6, 2019

A little over a year ago, I wrote a piece for Tedium: the Dull Side of the Internet about Tom Bodett. You can read "Leavin' the Light On" here. For that article, not only did I interview Tom Bodett, but I also did a deep dive into my radio show collection for the Bodett-voiced Motel 6 commercials I remembered hearing in my youth. Here is the first one.

Motel 6 — Save a Buck

In this spot, Tom tells us why a deer freezes when he sees headlights ("because he's stupid") and why you stop at Motel 6 when you see the light ("because you're smart"). Enjoy this down-home slice of American advertising in glorious lo-fi below:

I'm always looking for new commercials to post to our YouTube channel and talk about over here, so stay tuned.
