If you have listened to New Jersey 101.5 for more than 10 minutes, you will know exactly who Brad Benson is. He is this loudmouth egomaniac who torments our eardrums with his lame (oops, I mean gay) sense of humor trying to sell Hyundais. The second I hear him say "Hi" the radio shuts off.
 
At first I thought it was me, but when a customer of mine came in and heard the station playing in the background, he made mention of it too. Then I knew it wasn't just me. Does this station know it loses listeners because of this guy?
 
I guess the best way to describe this guy is to picture Rush Limbaugh doing a Hyundai ad on the radio. Similar sounding voice, and a similar big ego (if not worse). Then throw in some Billy Mays loudness, and you have Brad Benson.

I hate his ads, too. Their BS about paying "30% off the dealer-posted price" is total BS. Do they think people are that stupid?!!

I'd say his ego is more Olbermanesque, dwarfing Limbaugh. I'm a Giants fan and I am pre-disposed to avoid criticiaing the ex-Giant.  The commercials suck, though.

I really cant stand this guy. As soon as I hear 1 of Brad Benson's Commercials start playing I immediately change the channel. And Worse he's not just on 101.5 new jersey. I hear his stupid commercials on 660 Am wfan and 880am news radio.
I've never disliked an AD so much in my life. He has new ones all the time and they're always dealing with something contemporary. I hope these stations find out that I do in fact stop listening to the station in which I hear the commercial.
Has anyone heard the AD in which he starts talking about a Giants Field Goal post and relates it to an erection? I seriously wanted to punch to radio every time I heard it.

I wouldn't buy a car from this douchebag under any circumstances, if you google the dealership you read some pretty bad reports on it too. And that makes me smile.

I'm an avid 101.5 listener myself, and I can say that though I love the station, their commercials are horrible.  There are actually much worse commercials than Brad Benson.  At least he updates the spots regularly and some are a bit humorous the FIRST time I listen to them.

They are awful… Just awful & I’m a Giants fan…. I absolutely hate how he ties in a current event then tries to be humorous with his take on the situation… At this point I instantly turn the volume down for 30 seconds the second he comes on the air

My mind is wired to mute, turn off the radio, or change the station as soon as I hear the "Hi,". I listen to sports radio 660 WFAN in New York and I love the station, but if this keeps up, I gotta switch to ESPN radio because they don't have his commercials.
