So I actually just did this. Most expensive movie poster I ever bought, I was glad they threw in four free tires.
I would have been stoked if the promotion had been "get a free exclusive toy when you purchase a set of 4 new tires." I miss the days of Aveo Swerve…
On the plus side, the promotion isn't "get a free exclusive toy when you purchase a set of 4 new tires"…
Okay, I'm convinced RotB is not about Transformers but product placement slots.
Wait! Hold on a second! I forgot that ROTB is NOT a Bay movie! We may be saved from low brow humor like BB "lubricating" people, or Devastator's "wrecking balls".
This could in fact be a legitimate promotion…
This is where i go for auto service.
Ah ok, I thought you were replying to my previous comment. I am equally perplexed by this promo
I was more referring to why this promo exists, but that too.
For years Monroe was advertised as "Monroe Muffler & Brakes"
… if Bumblebee shows off how he gets his muffler changed I'm out of this fandom…
