I love it, I love it, I love it!!!!!!!!! Keep it up Jon. Only 45,700+ members that will love it too!!!!! And they think image is everything. No more Anti Christ of hot rodding there - just a couple of stupid looking guys in advertising thongs. Think anyone will buy those anymore and if they did do you think they will wear them now.

And if you look at the members names at the bottom of the last page, you will see that every word is being watched !!

No official response yet from Monkey Spanker Mission Control. The business day just got started though.

One of my guesses is that dodgy and Richard Rawlings might even be one and the same. It's clearly an integrated marketing plan: "Gas Monkey Garage", and "Dodgy Monkey Media". Richard really likes the whole "monkey" theme.

Note how Dodgy Monkey Media's url points to a placeholder domain page, not a real website: http://dodgymonkey.com/ .


A classic response to this situation would be for them to blame the "production company". For all we know, the "production company" could even be Richard Rawlings's video camera tripod.

Considering his history as a successful advertising executive, the notion that he's an innocent naive hotrodder, manipulated by a big bad production company, is ridiculous. Although, before I found out about his past, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Now, you can see how all the pieces fit into place.

NWayne -- I saw that on their website too, and emailed both of those shows last night .

What if everyone on here sends Gas Monkey Garage an e-mail with one of these parodies in it. Even if 20 people sent one it would be worth it.
Everyone could also post pictures on their blog. I've already put the link to this thread on the blog.

Awsome. If you can post the email addresses to the shows? Maybe we can flood their email boxes. I'll be first in line.

Ok so I found something a little more entertaining, (not like my last misguided post) and of the right guy(??)

In wandering around the very "technically oriented" gasmonkey website I found that:

Richard rawlins claims to be the worlds only 3 time winner of the bullrun "race"
What a distinction
(I had never heard of the bullrun, now I know why)

here is a description of that "event"
Bullrun is the most glamorous and high profile of the new breed of high-end ?luxury lifestyle? automotive rallies. Each year, a hundred of the world?s premier super-cars embark on the beginning of an invite-only epic eight-day rolling party across the USA, bringing together a celebrity strewn cast of characters and ?petrosexuals? for an unforgettable adventure, where, the only obligatory goals are to party, drive and enjoy...

Very prestigious race ...uh huh

What the hell is a "petrosexual"?

here is a link to the supposed 3 time winner's section.
Now we know where that gay pic came from.

http://www.bullrun.com/showGallery.p...ntGalleryID=49

It appears he earned the distinction of being the "loudest"
How appropriate.
He did get the "always first" award in 04 (i'll bet that makes his girlfriend happy)

and the spirit award in 05.
Rah rah!

later, mikey

Looks like they have made friends over on the hamb also....

http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...ight=gasmonkey

I think the last post there by dvlscoupe says it all

Re: Gas Monkey Garage makes the coolest stuff...
He sure gets a lot of plublicity on boards like these. I think he gets more business 'cause everyone *****es about him and keeps him in the spot light.
I think if everyone ignores him he will end up burried in the debt that is his fancy trailer and will be gone for the rest of our lives! We should let the gas monkey loose back in to the wild!

They are playing a game, trying to say look I'm such an outlaw I have all the message boards talking...

Badboy wannabes.

Nice work Nightfire. I've been trying to post a link to this thread on the YouTube video comment section, but I keep getting a generic "An error occured while posting the comment" message. No idea what the problem is. I've tried several different browsers, maybe it's my OS.

NWay -- you can reach Overhaulin' at support@overhaulin.com. MuscleCar is part of the "PowerBlock" collection of shows. You can reach their advertising department at info@powerblocktv.com .

powerrodsmike -- nice find.

Be careful not to send "bulk" emails guys, by sending the same text to multiple email addresses. You'll have to type each one out separately (even if they are very similar anyway), otherwise it may be considered disrespectful.

I've also been emailing the marketing departments at the large automotive corporations (GM, Chrysler, etc.). I highly doubt that they'll respond, but I think this can be passed around a few corporate boardrooms for some great laughs.

I also think that the marketing schools of universities would be interested in this. For them, it could serve as a good example of how NOT to market to online automotive communities.

I've been having some trouble trying to contact Billy Joe Armstrong, of the band Green Day. He's just one of the celebrities that Gas Monkey Garage built a bike for. However, his name does appear on the Gas Monkey Garage website, so I thought he would want to know what they're doing. It turns out that there are actually official "Green Day Forums", at this link: http://www.greenday.com/idiotclub/ . However, it costs $20 to join their forums, so I'm trying to figure out a way to get an email through first. If anyone reading this can get a message through to him, please do so.

I also have put together some parody material to work the "fat" aspect of the photo. It's in the attachment to this post.

BTW, it looks like this discussion has now been viewed 2,133 times, while the "Anti-Christ of the Hot Rod World" video is only at 1,981. That was easy. I wonder how long it will take to get to 100,000 views.

HH -- thanks, but I'm just a web geek, the lowest level on the International Monkey Spanker Badness scale. Bummer .
