I can't quite put my finger on why, but Randy Marion commercials have always creeped me (and my wife) out. We first started seeing these ads 2007 when we moved to the area. The kid was pretty young then and seemed, I don't know, "off." Some combination of afraid to disappoint, spoiled, over-medicated, and who knows what else. We couldn't help but feel a little sorry for the kid - just let her be normal for crying out loud. The lady, who I assume is her mother, was/is just plain annoying.

There's a line between "down-homey" and poor taste. This line isn't all that fine and these ads are well beyond the wrong side of it.

I refuse to set foot on one of their lots because of it. I've purchased several vehicles since living in NC. Zero have been from Randy Marion lots.
