We stumbled across these Japanese commercials for the Mitsubishi i MiEV and noticed something very interesting. It's basically the same as the commercials for the Yukon/Tahoe Hybrid. The gimmick in both of them is that someone explains to a group of children how the technology works and how awesome it is. The real meaning behind this is that you, the consumer, is about as smart as an eight-year-old when it comes to green technology. But rather than explaining it to you directly they use kids as your proxy, expecting you to be too dumb to know what a proxy is. [Via TH]
