You are watching: That'll buff right out


English is not my first language and I"ve always been wondering what"s the meaning of this expression and where does it come from? I know it"s posted when there"s a crashed car picture and that"s it. Anyone?
Buffing* - to polish and/or sand to remove a visual defect (paint chip, small scratch.)Thusly, when someone posts a picture of a hugely damaged car, the sarcastic remark is"That"ll buff right out."*As applied to vehicles- M4H

I recall it in family guy and I think it might have been in Uncle Buck the movie before then... maybe it"s roots go deeper.

Yeah, but it works better when you say it the other way

depends, like if it is from the guy that dinged your car in the parking lot, he might really mean that.
