As I noted several years ago near the start of this thread, KFK ads are everywhere.

I am so tired of every charity in this country endlessly begging (almost demanding!) that I GIVE them the extra car (truck, boat, RV, motorcycle, airplane, real estate, et bloody cetera) that I don't have.

Worst radio ad, ever! I hear this a lot on 710 KIRO (sports station in Seattle) and sometimes on KOMO 1000 and it drives me absolutely nuts. And I've heard snippets of the heavy metal version before pressing the "Tune" button on my radio - what the hell was that all about?! Angry
I wonder how many cars actually get donated to Kars 4 Kids. Or are they losing money due to these stupid ads?

I have a confession to make. I actually donated my old Chevy to K4K in August /13. It was out of sheer necessity, and I am not ashamed to admit it. That car had been sitting in my driveway for a couple months and then I got an official notice from the city I live in. Remove it within 15 days or pay a 15$ per day fine untill it was removed. I called a bunch of local boneyards and they said they would give me 100 bucks without the title, or 300 with. Problem was, I didn't have the title, it was lost somewhere over the years. Anyhow, in desperation I called K4K, and they would take it whether I had the title or not, and give me a 500$ donation voucher for my taxes. Whether I get anything extra is kinda a moot point. I'm not getting fined, and I have more space in my yard.
The ad I'd really love to see has the GEICO Gecko being run over and flattened by the Energizer bunny.

I wouldn't mind if K4K stops the disgusting horrible radio ads, but I'm kind of surprised of how K4K helped you out!

Oh, make no mistake.... I STILL hit the button to kill the ads. But it didn't cost me anything out of pocket to put the old POS on a flatbed.

This @#%@in ad just aired a couple of days ago on KCBS-FM's webstream!! (93.1 Jack FM) As soon as I heard those first notes and "1-877" I muted it!! I wish they would stop doing this ad and start doing just a voiceover, like "Heritage for the Blind" and their 3 day vacation vouchers.

Last night it played once again - this time on KNBR 680 in San Francisco (which comes in really well at night here). AWFUL heavy metal version. Whoever thought of that should be embarrassed and ashamed.

A new twist on this one.  For April Fool's Day, they reversed the lyrics (if you can call 'em that).  Played on NYC am stations often today:

There's a video clip there with the altered text.

Good April Fool's joke Kars4Kids! How about selling the car, and the annoying kid who sings, and the annoying man in those heavy metal version ads. Smile

I hate this ad soo much. I hear it all the time on WTOP in the Washington DC area.
This has got to be in my top 5 WORST ads ever list.

I would love to hear one of the DJs on an open mic say something like "I can't stand this friggin' ad!"


Howie Carr, New England's #1 talk host, as well as listeners, routinely mock or berate the Kars4Kids ads on the air.  His flagship station (and original show owner) WRKO in Boston routinely airs the ads in their market and online streaming. 

Recently in January Howie left his longtime Boston affiliate for another station, and there was fantastic on-air celebration by him and listeners over the fact that they would no longer be subject to "those terrible Kars4Kids ads" anymore!  When he left WRKO, he took the full ownership of his show with him, and his new Boston affiliate was only that.

 Fast forward a couple months, and his new Boston affiliate deal crumbled, and he decided on returning to WRKO as an affiliate station (among about 20 others across New England) who air his (now) independently produced show.  All that being said, because now listeners in Boston are once again tortured with the horrible Kars4Kids commercials, and they are still occasionally referenced and mocked on-air.  That old buzzard Imus is not alone in making at least a little quip about them!

I was going to start a thread on this commercial but I guess you all beat me to it. This is by far the worst radio ad. I hate this more than the rest! I always change the station when this one comes on. Been on NYC AM radio stations for YEARS. It actually makes me hate kids! Worse than the Ad Council ads and you would think that's just not possible.

You've just dissed Mr. Ed. Sure he made a one shot guest appearance at your friendly neighborhood glu factory circa 1966 but, his spirit still lives. Mr. Ed had a homsey Southern accent. The old Kars 4 Kids guy sounds like a "short eyes" who got caught with his and the kiddies pants down if you get my drift. I do hate these commercials with a passion. Even the slime cock flipping houses Nick Vertucci radio commercials aren't quite as bad.[tube]O0SaMyXFsbI[/tube]

Here in NYC - This eldritch abomination of an advertisement has been played about once every hour on sports and rock music stations - The sports stations have been playing this abortion for about 5 or six years

a Jewish guy from Brooklyn started this sham/scam. It was exposed years ago here in NYC. It should be renamed 'Kars for Yids'. He's filthy rich now and he's nation wide in hundreds of markets. This Tax Free org is now soliciting for boats and real estate in addition to cars. what a disgrace.

I looked this organization up in Wikipedia.   
 
Kars4Kids is a multinational non-profit national car donation organization based in Lakewood, New Jersey and Toronto, Canada which donates its proceeds to Oorah, an incorporated Orthodox Jewish kiruv (outreach) organization dedicated to "awakening Jewish children and their families to their heritage."
 
 
Seriously?  This is what people are donating their cars for?  This is why I have to look at that kid's stupid hair constantly on TV?  LOL
 
 
 
Oy vey.

I went on YouTube to watch a funny video. But...for the advertisement...without any warning whatsoever...my eyes and ears are assaulted by this Kars4Kids commercial. I muted the computer, and I'm now thinking of getting YouTube Red. This is especially dumb because I have ADBlock enabled, which does a great job against advertisements. Two words: why, YouTube?
