am I the only one...?

who thinks that the "Maniac" Kia commercial is the lamest, most annoying ad

in all human history. I almost never watch TV but the TV is always on at the

restaurant, set to ESPN or some other sport program, that ad is on all the

freekin' time and it makes my brain bleed.

Seriously, dry-humping a Kia Optima? :yuck: to the THIRD power!

Yeah I'd say it's right up there with the Viva Viagra commercial in terms of awfulness and fruityness

yes, very disturbing. I would throw the keys back at the guy if he did that to me, and proceed to walk out the door. But then I would wake up, because I'd have to be having a bad dream to be in a KIA dealer in the first place...

true & true.

Also, how does that come off for their dealers?

That's like a cheesy off-broadway, B-rated

musical portrayal of the sleeziest car salesman

of all time.

Kia is perhaps the sleaziest car company of all time.

I dunno, I was a janitor at a Hyundai/Kia dealership over the summer and I never saw any of the salespeople act like that. Mostly they just lurked around the sales floor, eyes suspiciously darting from person to person, mumbling "Are you trying to steal my sale? Are you trying to steal my sale?"

Interesting sig wmj, it says in German, Because aviation fuel is simply cheaper ..., :rotflmao:

Market perception of Hyundai for most Americans is quite good whilst Kia's is tragic. Whats even funnier is that they are the same company with almost identical product lines, platforms, and dealer qualities...

I found the Sound of Music one more annoying. But they're both very bad.

It's obnoxious, the Koreans often times try to sell by being obnoxious... that's... well, OBNOXIOUS.

Still people are stupid enough to buy their crap!
