No kidding. It’s painful to watch a commercial for a car that appears to turn children into snotty and materialistic tweens. Consider what a child could take away from this ad. (1) It’s permissible to be disrespectful of parents -- one’s own and those of other children. (2) It’s permissible to exit a conversation by looking askance and putting on headphones. And we wonder why children show so much “attitude;” why they are seven going on seventeen; why there are “mean girls” and bullies.
So, no. We won't be buying that car any time soon. However, judging by the You Tube comments like "Hey, who sings that song?" it's doing pretty well for Juice Newton.
