Now here's a car dealership ad I would proudly run on my show!

Stations say ‘jihad’ car spots go too far

Some Columbus radio stations have rejected as insensitive an advertisement for a car dealership that invokes Islamic references.

The general manager of the dealership, though, says the promotions — which he called "tongue-in-cheek" — will air on some stations beginning next week.

In the spot, Keith Dennis of Dennis Mitsubishi talks about "launching a jihad on the automotive market."

Sales representatives "will be wearing burqas all weekend long," the ad says. One of the vehicles on sale "can comfortably seat up to 12 jihadists in the back."

"Our prices are lower than the evildoers’ every day. Just ask the pope! " the ad says. "Friday is fatwa Friday, with free rubber swords for the kiddies."

Plus let's add a FREE Pope on a rope with every test drive.

Who could possibly be offended, other than jihadists and terrorists? Moderate Muslims shouldn't be offended. I think we all need to lighten up.

Follow-up Dealership Caves, pulls ad, Jihadists spokesgroup was offended!
