Rocky’s Autos, masters of local advertising, close up shop

DENVER (KDVR) — The end of an era defined by original local ads is over for those who grew up in Denver.

It’s because Rocky’s Autos Inc.which released a plethora of cringe-worthy ad golds featuring Shagman, Audra and Officer O’Dell over its 40 years in business, has shut down for good.

Visitors to the Rocky’s Autos website will see a brief message that reads:

“Rocky’s Autos has not been in business since September 6, 2022. Thank you.”

According to the owners, they will sell the store located at 6350 North Federal Blvd. since 1982 due to the low level of used vehicle inventory combined with the fact that the property the land is on is worth a good amount of money.

If you’re unlucky enough not to have seen any of these adverts described by Channel 2’s Chris Parente as “so bad they’re good”, then don’t worry, because Rocky’s Auto YouTube channel is still up and running.

It’s unclear how long the channel will remain active, so if you want to take advantage of what the car-selling business had to offer in the area of ​​content creation, while experiencing some of what made it local Unique Denver Television, then head over to their YouTube wormhole, certain to make your eyes roll in the best way.
