Retroist Presents: “Get Credit Worthy” Commercial (1990)

Wow…is it me or is that tow truck driver a bit too agitated for the situation? I have a feeling that this scenario ended with the tow truck driver walking calmly to his truck and grabbing a tire iron to finish the conversation. As I was watching this retro ad today I began to think this is possibly where Ted Levine’s character of Rusty Nail from Joyride came from…it might also be possible that I just have too much time on my hands.
