March 2013, Hadley, MA – Carla Cosenzi, President of TommyCar Auto Group, presented TV commercial Contest winner Al Liptak with his grand prize at her Country Nissan store in Hadley.
The contest was launched in November 2012, and was promoted though three of TommyCar’s four dealerships: Country Nissan of Hadley, Country Hyundai of Greenfield, and Northampton Volkswagen. Entries were accepted though early January, and a total of 75 produced submissions were received. The top five were selected by a contest review committee, and then the public was invited to cast their votes.
In the end, the race came down to two – Jake Hulseberg’s VW daydream, and Al’s crazy Hyundai-driving puppet. After 2,200 votes were cast, Al Liptak’s entry was the victor. The winning commercial was accounted via a special, premiere airing on CBS, Sunday February 2nd 2013, immediately after the Superbowl.
Liptak won his choice of a brand new Nissan Versa, Hyundai Accent, Volkswagen Jetta, or cash equivalent. In addition, Al’s winning Hyundai commercial will be ran on local TV networks during the month of April
