Holiday Inn Express commercial

Scene: A man in a desert has been stung by a snake with two friends trying to help him. Along comes a cowboy and asks a few knowing questions about the snake and the bite. When the friends are heaving sighs of relief, they find that this guy is only an acting as a cowboy and knows nothing at all about snakes or bites. One of them asks,
"So you're not a real cowboy?"
"No. But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night."

If you've seen this one, you must've seen the other Holiday Inn Express ads too: one involving a game show and another with doctors (or radiation physicists. Didn't notice much). I don't know what the hell the ad writers are trying to tell me. Do cowboys stay at Holiday Inn Express??? or do doctors??

The funny thing is that people think they're supposed to laugh for this ad and start laughing even when they don't know what the heck it is supposed to mean!! For my part, i don't even know if I am supposed to laugh for this. Explanations, anyone?
