Don't know if this has been talked about.  Apparently this abomination has been around for years, but good god, make it stop.  Nothing in this jingle rhymes and it's grating.  And now, there's an uptempo remix version of this song on the radio with the annoying kid in autotune at the end with the "donate your car todaaaay".  Arghhh..

That's the old one. Here's the one I'm seeing nowadays. I don't understand why they felt a need to redo it. Except for the kids, it's pretty much the same.

They even used the exact same musical instruments.

I see the new one has a black girl and the girl to boy ratio changed in favor of the girls.

Must've had something to do with it.

Maybe people complained about the ad's obvious sexism.

oh Gawd Thor really! LOL  Its not like he is a quarterback or something 

This new singer kid looks a little more Punk Rock and perhaps Dangerous 

compared with the Nerd in the original 

The song gets stuck in my head and makes we want to beat on the snotty nosed kids 

And that's just not acceptable 

The song has been on the radio for years tormenting me with its stupidity 

There is another thread where we discussed this …the charity is a scam 

why they remade the commercial is proof that the people making this AD 

are busy refining the message using some kind of PC metrics we will never understand 

trying to keep themselves relevant and forward thinking while they put up this

smoke screen to get money for their real purpose which is 

self enrichment.  


in summary... not only is the song stupid and sh*tty 

its not even cute and the whole purpose for this f**kery 

is a bogus charity. Embarrassed

Kars4Kids’ low rate of program spending is also particularly concerning given that the vast majority of Kars4Kids’ program expenses consist of grants to its “sister charity,” Oorah, which runs the “educational, developmental, and recreational programs for Jewish youth and their families” funded by Kars4Kids, per its mission. About 93% of Kars4Kids’ cash-based program spending in 2015 was in the form of a grant to Oorah in the amount of approximately $16.9 million. By comparison, Kars4Kids reported spending about $17.1 million on advertising and promotion in 2015 – about $150,000 more than its cash grant to Oorah. Furthermore, as a percentage of the funds Kars4Kids generated from donated vehicles (including boats & planes) in 2015, its grant to Oorah represented only about 46% of those total funds raised.

Additionally, as the car donation proceeds get passed along from Kars4Kids to Oorah, Oorah itself has fundraising and general administrative costs to pay for, which it does primarily with the grant money it receives from Kars4Kids. Therefore, the proceeds Kars4Kids generates from car donations get another “hair cut” when they make their way to Oorah. Fortunately, Oorah’s cash-based program spending percentage was 74% in 2015, which is above CharityWatch’s reasonableness benchmark of 60%. Even with Oorah’s very reasonable rate of program spending, though, once Oorah’s and Kars4Kids’ overhead expenses are considered in aggregate, only about 38% of Kars4Kids’ donated car proceeds were spent on bona fide programs in 2015. In other words, based on the average resale value of about $365 for a car donated to Kars4Kids in 2015, less than $139 actually went towards benefitting “kids,” who, as a reminder, are mostly Jewish youth that participate in Oorah’s Orthodox Jewish outreach programs.



f**k scamming "charities"
