TruckDown.com, PartSeek.com and TruckPartsInventory.com (its slogan “>Expose Your Parts to the World”) have debuted a promotional cartoon from the Terry Gilliam school of cutout animation, set to the tune of “Achy Breaky Heart,” with parody lyrics by Scott Tetz of PartSeek.com.

Here’s the link. Be sure to wait around for the parents of “>Customer Fred.”

The point, of course, is to promote those three sites as sources for parts and service. “>Don’t be a ‘Fred’ and be guaranteed to never hear your own bluegrass theme song softly play in the background in some backwater town while you watch your cargo — and your profits — spoil,” says the press release.
