ďAvis can't afford television commercials. Aren't you glad? Do you know what it costs to make a television commercial? About $15,000.
Of course, that includes highway, western sky, car, pretty girls and a catchy jingle to delight the hearts of music lovers. And then you still have to pay for putting it on the air.
Avis hasn't got that kind of money.
