Kid grows up fast in car dealer's advertising

It's been a while since we've seen a local car-dealer ad that's as bad as this one. (The last one was probably the travesty from South Oak Dodge in Matteson, Ill., with the shouting Sumo wrestler who represents the Asian car makers.) This one, from Florence & White Ford of Smithville, Tenn., is narrated by a kid who has an adult's mouth digitally (and poorly) grafted onto his face. He talks about the great deals and inventory, and then adds that his mom even drives a truck, which is why he calls her his "mothertrucker." "Reminds me of the Conan sketches using Syncro-Vox," says the reader who sent this in. Or a poor man's Baby Bob.
