It's prehensile. (Ever seen Babylon 5? Ask Ambassador Mallari about that.)

You make out with your kid?

Daughter comes screeching in and slides to a halt, knocking over the containers and sending black paint everywhere*.

What does Mom do? String her daughter up by the ankles in the garage? No, she gives her a high five.

*actually, they use CGI to make the paint look like it's forming some sort of curlicue design, which makes even less sense.
Okay, so the point is that the girl is imitating the cool stylings of the "midnight edition"* Nissan by painting her Big Wheel all black, instead of the expected girly pink. Thus, she rides by the neighborhood pink girls with her "whatsup?" nod while they look on in shock. Then she's cruising next to her mom, who for some reason is driving next to her. They don't explain why - maybe mom's on her way back from work/getting groceries/saving the world and they happen to meet up and mom rides next to her cool daughter so they can look smug together.

Anyway, the car is so cool, the paint doesn't make a mess, it makes art.

That, too. Because driveways are rough like sandpaper and the underlying plastic is still pink.

Still an annoyingly stupid commercail - and apparently they are telling me that big wheels powered by gradeschoolers can outrun (or atleast keep pace with) the Nissan.
No, they're saying that mom is proud of her pre-goth daughter and they're riding together to show off their two cool-mobiles together. Cars can be driven slowly on purpose.

So you don't have a problem with poo-water everywhere?

This is just the most stupid stupid stupid commercial I can remember ever seeing.
I have to agree, and I haven't even seen the ad.

* The "Midnight Edition" comes in 5 colors, not just black. They talk about the blacked out features like window shades, mirrors, and wheels. Whoopeedoo. I still can't agree to a white car called "Midnight Edition".
