The Saddest Commercial Ever
Is this commercial suppose to make you feel warm and happy or utterly depressed?

ha! the end is such a suckerpunch. i saw this yesterday during conan, and immediately thought of it before even starting the clip. 'a versatile sports utility vehicle for the recent divorcee'

what! this is so strange. It seems like an ad from a sitcom where the plot of tonight's episode is how the comic relief side kick screws up yet another big opportunity. This time, the bumbling, but well-meaning co-star has a shot at working at a big advertising firm but instead of creating a great commercial, he directs a commerecial that is a thinly guised jab at his ex-wife.

yes! I saw that commercial and I thought-"what the fuck is going on here?!?!" I mean I understand the representing the divorced demographic, and it would have been cool if like the dad said something like "see you guys next weekend". But the whole "thanks for inviting me this time" shit is soo sad. poor dude kept getting left out? until the new car?
