Children in local car dealer ads
 
The local Miami TV feed is laden with car dealer ads featuring their progeny squealing, mewling and shrieking into a camera about "my daddy makes the best deal" or "we're the 3rd generation in this business". Who cares- If I were in the market for a car, I'd want to know value, performance, etc. to back up the research I've done on line.
Do ya'll have this type of ad on your TV or are we just blessed with Miami? We get the west coast networks form Seattle and there does not seem to be the horribly obnoxious ad trend there.

Yep. We've goth them in charlotte too. My wife will actually notice when they have a new commercial and will comment on how the kids have grown.

theres only two dealers around here that do that...well one now, as the other is out of business, they were around many years and have been closed due to tax issues and embezzlement

I know some of the car commercials here have kids in them, but the only commercials I can think of right now are HVAC commercials. I tend to not go with companies that use their families in their commercials. While it may not be true, I always equate trying to play on the emotions of your customers as not having the best products/services.

A few are good commercials, most are really bad. If I can't understand what your child is saying I won't be enticed to come in and look at your inventory.

I hate those commercials too. I remember railing against them in another thread here.

There's one for a KIA dealership in Miami for Valentines Day. I don't care if he's giving the car away- yikes. Throw the kids, (and producer) in a burlap bag in the glades!
