The Most Annoying Commercial On The Planet Just Got More Annoying
Yeah so the most annoying commercial in the world just got more annoying. What commercial am I talking about? That’s the Kars for Kids commercial. You know it. You hate it. Well, most people hate it. I know I DIVE FOR THE BUTTON WHEN I HEAR THAT AD. Well, it got more annoying because some classical pianist decided that the Kars For Kids commercial would sound better if it had a different background. He recorded it with a classical piano intro. It’s here in The Pit.
If you’re asking me the only thing that would make this commercial jingle sound better would be a the weeeoohh-weeeohh of a fire engine as it sped on by to take care of a mysterious fire that broke out at the studio where this awful commercial was recorded.
Just what exactly is a Kar for Kids anyway? Actually, as bad as their jingle is the charity sounds like it’s pretty darn cool. The charity’s goal is “to fund educational, developmental and recreational programs for low-income youth” .
I mean you can’t get any more honorable than that.
In fact, our own East Side Dave claims to have donated a car to Kars for Kids. “I got a thousand bucks from it, for a crappy Saturn. It was great. I enjoyed the Kars For Kids experience. I thought it was good!”
According to their website, the claim to have touched the lives of over 32,000 kids. This charity not only accepts cars as donations. They also accept airplanes, real estate, and boats. They describe the process as pretty simple. First you tell them about the car, plane, or home you’d like to give them. They schedule a pick up time that works for you. Then they work with their auction partners to sell the donation. Then they send you a tax receipt for your tax deduction this year. They also say that you’ll get a vacation voucher.
Well, all that sounds really cool. Which is more than I can say for the Kars for Kids commercial new version:
