The other John Hughes

with 3 comments

You know you’re from Dullsville if, when you heard that John Hughes died, you wondered whether you’d still be subjected to these:

Apparently, the bloke that directed Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Home Alone was also called John Hughes. Perth’s John Hughes is, as far as the evidence suggests, still alive and going strong (if looking a little weathered, and struggling to form his traditional emphasis-fist when he says “absolutely“):

Is it true that John Hughes will continue to subject us to his egomaniacal ads? Absolutely.

  1. This guy ain’t never gonna die.

    30 years from now we’re gonna say to him, as Pauly Walnuts in The Sopranos said to his mother’s friend, “30 years ago when i was young, you were old. now i’m old and you’re still old. I don’t get it”.

  2. I suppose JH is trading on his reputation as an honest car dealer – it makes sense to play to this by featuring himself on his ads.

    The ones who REALLY get me snorting are the no-reputation balloon-egos like that Textile Traders twat (who doesn’t seem to understand that it’s not a positive to speak with that godawful yarpie accent in this [red]neck o the woods) and the carpet vendors who yell their spiel out of the box at ya promising ultra-bargains at perpetual “closing down” sales.

    There are other examples that my misfiring synapses are not letting through at the moment. But yeah, ego’s a dirty fucking word as far as I’m concerned, and much like you guys, I suspect, I’m on a personal mission to pop the most grotesquely inflated ones as messily as possible. No shortage of targets – but laziness and apathy gets in the way. Hypocrisy is also a wee issue over my way, but that’s twixt thee and me.
