Some of us miss the days of wacky local advertising. You know, like when your nutty dealer down the street filmed commercials in a garbage can to drive home a theme? (The one we remember best involved a guy in a chicken suit who claimed that his cars were "cheeper". Stupid, we know, but kind of homey and charming, too.) Anyway, in Toronto, the William Ashley china shop has a history of balancing vehicles on fine dinnerware. The store's current display involves a Tesla Roadster balanced on teacups, hovering above sod-filled placemats. If Elon Musk shows up as the Mad Hatter, we'll order formal service for eight.
