Creative marketing sometimes means finding a unique perspective and presenting a pitch in way that hasn’t been done before.  It isn’t easy to think “out of the box” – especially when it comes to your own business.

Creative marketing requires some inspiration every now and then, and so in that spirit we bring you the most “epic and honest” commercial ever made. But before we get to the commercial, there are a few things to note.

This commercial for Cullman Liquidation was made and first posted in 2009. Cullman Liquidation is a real business located in Cullman, Alabama. The low budget production was created by Rhett and Link, proprietors of the website, ILoveLocalCommercials.com. Sponsored by MicroBilt Corporation, I Love Local Commercials is all about helping local small businesses to gain visibility and become more profitable.

Although Cullman’s epic commercial will be four years old this October 21, it is still getting comments and hits, and has reached an impressive 4,013,120 views to date.
