It Came From YouTube: The Ultimate Warrior fights a giant snail so you’ll buy a Ford!

11 Submitted by on Sun, 13 April 2014, 13:00

In 1987 The Ultimate Warrior (then known as “The Dingo Warrior” in World Class Championship Wrestling) appeared in a series of commercials for “Westway Ford” which is a Ford car dealership in Texas that is still in business to this day.

It’s “Snail Damage III”? So they’ve had a problem with snail damage at least twice before? What happened?! There just has to be a story there.

Oh! Make an “S-Car Go”! I get it! Clever.

Here’s a second ad, and a third ad, and a fourth ad. They’re all worth checking out.

    I’ve never made an Escort “go” but I did get an escort to “come” on several occasions.

    I think the pun is “S-Car go.” Because they marked the cars with an S.

    I always remembered that annoying guy with the giant glasses and the cowboy hat in the commercials, his name was Joe Greed. Never knew that he did a commercial with the Warrior until now! I think that may have been right around the time I started watching wrestling, but still a little young to remember a whole lot.

    It’s believed that The Warrior was going to pull out of the commercial before it was shot until he was paid more than the snail.
