I have a new one thats been really pissing me off lately. Its the Infiniti commercial with the family thats driving someplace in the snow and a 60ish year old man smugly blurts out "I hope we make it. Have a 40 year old tradition to keep."
What tradition must they keep you may ask. Whats so important that this middle aged man with his annoying graphite pseudo wrap-around eye glasses and cab driver cap is lamenting over in the back seat of this car??
At the end of this commercial theres a kid putting an ornament on a tree and then someone hits a button and the tree lights up. Wait. I may be mistaken but doesn't every Christmas celebrating family in the world have that tradition? Hanging sh!t on a tree and making it light up. Oh boy! Can't derail the all important tradition of decorating a tree for Christmas! It has to be done tonight! Right now! This ornament HAS to get on that tree and it MUST be lit up or else a 40 year old tradition of decorating a tree for Christmas will be lost!
I don't get this commercial on any level. Nothing says Infiniti SUVs like driving in the snow to hang an ornament on a tree and lighting it up. Maybe the dude's awful looking glasses say Infiniti. I do not know. Oh well. Spoiler Alert: they kept the tradition alive. Now seemingly 41 years old. Until next year.
Edit: I found it! http://www.youtube.c...h?v=7zoC1T-8PwE
I'd like to add that the grandpa's facial expression when the tree lights up at the end makes me want to mule kick him in the mouth.
