You often hear ads, especially local ads, where some celebrity or radio DJ says "Tell 'em [name of celebrity who is talking] sent you".  Okay, has anyone in the history of the world ever gone to a merchant and said some guy on the radio sent them, as if they know this celebrity and had a personal discussion with them?

A local radio talk show host, Eddie Fingers, does a commercial for the Jeff Wyler Cadillac car dealership.  At the end of the ad, he says "Tell 'em Eddie Fingers sent you and get Wyler preferred pricing".  Yeah, I'll bet.  If someone said that, the salesmen would probably laugh to themselves and add in a bunch of charges.
