    Kia commercial--sleeping child, loose straps

    Has anyone seen this Kia commercial? I saw it last night. The family is out in what I assume is a Sedona. Mom turns around to smile at her preschool-age daughter, who is happily sleeping in her carseat. But the chest clip is way too low, and the straps are so loose that they have visible slack in them! At least she's harnessed.

    I haven't seen it yet, but I'll be on the lookout for it when I'm at my mom's house this weekend (we don't have TV reception here). I hate seeing so many clips of misuse in commercials.
