The Slasher Show

Slash It!
Behold, the Premier Dodge Slasher Show. Cheaply-produced in Duluth, this weekly half-hour infomercial for a local auto dealer is a cavalcade of wacky characters, cliched stereotypes and flat-out weirdness that hangs precariously between accidental brilliance and unapologetic inanity. I discovered this stunning phenomenon last night as I was riding the MARTA north from Midtown. The experience was all the more surreal, as my lack of an FM radio made me a silent witness to this spectacle appearing on the in-car television monitor.

The show’s URL ( appears to be dead, but a little Googling has uncovered an archived Slasher Show from back in June, 2006.

So I need to know. Is this show always so stupendous? Have any of our readers actually been featured on The Slasher Show? Cisco Kid? King Of Bling? Are you out there?

    I have been wanting to write about this for a while but I could never find a clip, and I knew that words could do it no justice.

    I have watched the Slasher Show every Saturday morning for maybe a year and I never cease to be mesmerized. It is one of the most awesome marketing tools I’ve ever seen. It always has the feeling that it was filmed clandestinely just the night before. Who else but a used car salesman could devise such an insanely guilty pleasure.

    The Slasher Show is a bit of a guilty pleasure for the Mrs. and me. Talk about targeting the lowest common denominator of society.
