A surprisingly frank car dealership commercial from 1966

According to the 'Tuber who posted this, "This video is from 1966, a local car salesman in SF was recently fired before doing this commercial. As you can tell he wasn't very happy."

I have an alternative theory - the spokesperson was a pal of the owner of the dealership, and they made this for internal consumption, and it never aired.
