Being from the Boston area means you learn handful of facts specific to The Hub. One of them is that Kevin Youkilis (A.K.A. "The Greek God of Walks," "Youk") is a great pro baseball player with a few years left in the tank (despite his 2011 woes). Another fact is that you can't throw a stone in New England without hitting a Herb Chambers dealership. As a former resident of the great state of Massachusetts, your author is an Escalade-sized Red Sox fan and also worked a summer shuttling rental cars between two of Chambers' dealerships.

It seems Chambers and Youk are working together now, but their approach is... unique. Sitting at a piano, the duet attempts to warble out a version of Biz Markie's classic Just A Friend. Predictably, it's not exactly Grammy worthy. Hell, it's not even worthy to make the first round of American Idol auditions. Luckily, Mr. Markie isn't far away and steps in to help the pair get the song just right.

The message? Herb Chambers has got what you need, thanks to his 48 dealerships located around New England. Click past the jump for the clip.

      I have no idea how herb chambers is so popular his deals aren't that great specially on used cars. When shopping for my LS he was at least 2k more expensive than everyone else

        Broadly speaking, people suck at buying cars, so the marketing budget rules the day.

      That is quite possibly the worst commercial I've ever seen. I want that 1:14 of my life back.
      Hursh!

      I work for a company that is a vendor to Herb Chambers. I have nicknamed the little bowl of my pot pipe a "herb chamber" so when I leave work for the day I can say I'm taking my work home as I will be working on the Herb Chambers account.
