Children cannot drive - is there a purpose, or reason, behind this which I am missing?

    They sure turn me off of that certain car or dealer, and they are not "memorable" to me. I think that they are childish.

    It sure turns me off - if I was buying - of that car or dealer.

    The actor/actress, or nobody, the animated figure deters me from the the car/dealer.

    I agree. I have seen that one also and several others on TV which I forget who it was. The only one that I remember is on the radio with Gumby. They all turn me off though. I do not remember the cars or dealers.
