Remember when the dot-com ads started to flood the airwaves during the Super Bowl? The ads were almost always wacky, and half the time, we didn't even know what was being sold. Well, it's been a long time since the 1990s, and very few Internet-based companies are still hocking services during The Big Game.

Cars.com is one of the WiFi warriors that is still swinging for the fences, and some of their past work has been reasonably funny. Their 2012 ad is all about using Cars.com to gain confidence at the dealership, but we're not sure what to think about it. There is something about a man with a freaky second head that doesn't sit well with us, and we like it even less when noggin part deux is intentionally obnoxious. Seriously, we could do without the gyrating, it's creeping us out. Hit the jump to preview the 30-second ad for yourself.

      It's like Johnny Knoxville's character in Men in Black 2

        That is immediately what first came to mind. Especially since the new MIB 3 movie is coming out later this year.

      Why do companies spend millions on Super Bowl ads, only to release them BEFORE the Super Bowl? I don't want to see them early, then most of the fun of watching the Super Bowl is gone. (The playoffs are exciting, but the game itself during the Super Bowl is usually boring IMO.)

      Really?!?! Someone was watching way too much Men In Black II before pitching this idea. Too bad they can't come up with something original or even funny.

        I was going to suggest it was a hidden commercial for Men in Black III

        This is sooo enraging! I went to school for advertising and I can't get a job in the industry but hacks like this can put hot garbage like this on at THE SUPER BOWL and get away with it? GRRRR!!!!

      So typical this type of ad targets the African American car buyer. It subconsciously is saying ;you're stupid and just listed to us. We will tell you what to do (geez...this could also be an ad for the democratic party). . This ad is demoralizing.

      Good lord that make me angry just watching it. Way too much of a stretch for humor.
