Oro Por Dinero: Cash4Gold.com Airs New Spanish and English Commercials
If you haven’t seen the commercial for Cash4Gold.com, then you probably haven’t been watching any television at all for the past 6 months. Cash4Gold.com is a service that lets you mail in your gold and receive money for it—and their commercials are on TV all the damn time! But if you’re one of the few who still hasn’t seen the original Cash 4 Gold ad here it is:
Recently two new versions of his commercial have hit the airwaves.
If you know any Latinos, then you know that they just loves their gold jewelries! So it was only natural that Cash4Gold would create a Spanish-language ad. This one promotes their companion website called OroPorDinero.com:
My Spanish is less-than-perfect, but it seems as if the testimonials are just copies of the ones in the English version of the ad. The first testimonial in the Spanish commercial takes place in the same room as the first testimonial in the English commercial and it is almost a word for word translation. Both women received exactly $583 for their gold!
Both the Spanish and English ads also feature testimonials from women who sent in their ring from their “first marriage” (“primero matrimonio”) and got money the “next day” (“próximo día”).
The Spanish commercial is missing one testimonial—probably because they could not find a Spanish-speaking transsexual on short notice.
But wait Cash4Gold fans…there’s more. A new English version of the Cash4Gold.com commercial is now being aired:
I’m really baffled as to why they bothered making this new commercial, because it seems almost exactly like the previous one. In fact, the video with the male presenter is exactly the same; only some of the testimonials are slightly changed.
The first testimonial is almost a word for word copy of the one in the earlier version. The main differences are that a different woman is saying the words in a different room. So I guess we have three different women who all received exactly $583 for their gold from Cash4Gold. What an amazing coincidence!
The final testimonial features the same woman as before, only her hair is pulled back and instead of saying she “got money the very next day” she says that she “got more money that I ever could have imagined.”
The graphics that follow still say “Money Sent Within 24 Hours” but perhaps they didn’t want to mislead people into thinking they’d receive money that soon.
The thing that pleases me most about the new Cash4Gold spot is what they didn’t change: Namely the testimonial from the annoying old transsexual. Don’t mess with a classic!
