Cars.com's Super Bowl ad teaser: The call of the bizarre

There hasn't been quite as strange a teaser for a Super Bowl ad as this thing from Cars.com. What can this possibly presage?

This had almost passed me by.

Things do sometimes.

And then, searching for something fascinating on the Web, I bumped into this highly peculiar teaser for Cars.com's Super Bowl ad.

It reeks of pain, passion and dramatic twists of fate. Which is rare for a focus group.

It reeks of unbridled passion and a love triangle that has gone terribly wrong.

As if love triangles ever go terribly right.

The teaser promises that during today's big and possibly unpulsating game, Cars.com will bring the drama.

What might happen? Will there be all-out scratch-your-eyes-out war? Will there be a counseling session with an understanding shrink? Will that shrink be played by Judge Judy?

Will there be a bedroom scene?

Surely the NFL wouldn't allow that.
