The Best and Worst Ads — Kevin Hart made a good case for his own ubiquity as he stalked his daughter and her date through the city using Hyundai's "Car Finder" function. But Hart's face-popping, out-from-behind-a-carnival-stuffed-animal is where this commercial's cuteness ends. His protectiveness of his daughter, while maybe relatable, feels creepily retrograde without any more context than an ad can provide.
