It used to be that a wild car dealership commercial meant a screaming frontman in a hideous suit making terrible puns and begging for you to help him out of some terrible predicament having to do with surplus inventory. No more – as production values have increased so has the number of commercials to so unusual that you spend the first few seconds trying to believe what you're seeing.

Parkway Motors and Parkway Hyundai of Valencia, California have added to the pile of commercials that make us say, "Hey, now that's interesting...." The Parkway Motors video joins a genre that blew up with the Swagger Wagon ad for the Toyota Sienna from almost three years ago, the recent Fiat 500L ad "The Motherhood" also part of the same club. The second, for Hyundai, "borrows" from Psy's "Gangnam Style" to move the kind of metal for "when you want to look cool, cruising in style."

You can check them both out below.

      What a surprise, just as hyundai takes designs and ideas from other cars and halfheartedly copies them onto their cars, the dealerships take annoying fads and commercials and halfheartedly replicates them, too.

      I was expecting the Gangnam ad to be groan-worthy but it was actually very well executed!

      Why do Americans say "hun-day"? There are clearly more syllables in the word. is it just laziness?

        Maybe its the same issue when Europeans say Al-u-min-e-u-em, they just don't know how to say the word properly...

        Because their initial commercials in the US used the tagline "rhymes with Sunday".

      I made it almost 5 seconds into the 1st one, I didn't even bother to try watching the 2nd. What a bunch of crap.

      Crap ads or not...they now got coverage on a national auto blog site. I'd say their advertising is working.

      Please don't encourage these people. It was bad enough when it was just the white guy trying to rap in the Parkway commercials...

        If that's the kind of people that dealer attracts, I would not purchase a vehicle from there.

      Surprisingly good for local car dealer commercials. Usually they are terrible and very low quality, as if they used a smartphone or VHS camcorder from 1987 to make them.

      Don't forget one of the original creators of the crazy car commercials, Cal Worthington and his "dog" Spot. "Go See Cal!!"
