Would You Buy a Used Car from... Launchpad?

Here's a real curiosity I found on YouTube: an ad for Copart Direct, an online auto dealer, featuring Terry McGovern, the voice of Launchpad McQuack! Not only does Terry appear as narrator, but he plays some "roles" as well. You can see other Copart ads here. On a scale of 1 to 10, would YOU give this performance a C+?

“I never crashed a TV ad before, Mr. McDee!”

It makes you wonder why McGovern didn't go on from Duck Tales to become a major name in voice acting. He certainly has the talent.

I wouldn't say that he didn't go on to become a major name in voice acting considering that voice acting covers a lot more than just animation Mark.

He has been a star in a lot of video games as of late including Activison's Mountain Sports; 3 Sam & Max Video games, Batman Begins video game, Shinobi, Dead or Alive 2 and The Sims: Superstar.

So yeah; he is far from gone in my book. And the answer is no... simply because my driving would probably be WORSE than Launchpad. So I'm saving everyone the trouble.
