N'yuks From Nyack

Post by temerityb » Mon Mar 08, 2021 5:37 pm

So I get an email, and here's the come-on:

And here's the payoff:

The Merm always was a heck of a pitchman, eh?

Gotta tell ya - Croton's wares now resemble the stuff you win in a plastic egg in a vending machine. I'm not saying that 15 years ago Croton was even in the realm of, well, department store stuff, but at least they were trying. Yet ... there they are. From the website:

Due to the ever-increasing success of the Croton brand
We are excited to announce the opening of
our new and expanded offices!
Our state-of-the-art location will help us design, build and execute the delivery of our fine timepieces in ways never before possible! Please be patient with us, as we settle our new systems into place as there will be a 5–7-day delay on all deliveries during this time. We apologize for the inconvenience, however, once we complete the transition you will experience a new and improved Croton that is sure to impress even the most discerning timepiece connoisseur.


In the words of the late Jerry Orbach for Roosevelt Raceway: "There's excitement to be had."

Wow....really a shame considering their history.

The Merm was the most honest pitchman that Shop ever had.....A carnival barker and proud of it

Is the Merm's target audience low budget pimps? "Gauche" doesn't even come close to describing that trifling, gumball machine prize selection of watches. And those MSRPs, please tell me that's a joke?

They have MSRPS more than a grand for some of those slapped-together Chinese baubles.

I can only assume there are still just enough surviving WGs out there keeping that brand afloat. I can't imagine them gaining any new fans by offering watches the quality of Chinese eBay brands Winner and Jaragar - I've seen this stuff up close, and I'm telling you, the Ali Baba stuff might actually be better quality.

The girl in ad has nice tits.
Me thinks someone messed them up in PS. Either that or her right tit is two cup sizes bigger than her left.

Not that there's anything wrong with a B-cup and a D-cup on the same person. Kind of a 2 for 1 thing, I guess.

If she's that excited over the current Croton line, I need to get her number.
