What does that one has anything to do?!! I think is funny and the tag line is great "life's too short to be boring" 100% agreed! Maybe a little more attitude is missing on the characters at the end but concept is ok

And there might be another ad which is smilar to this one. but i dont remember yet. it might be a condom ad.

Could have ended much better

The concept idea, singing load inside the car on a red light, is from a movie... I don't recall the name.

so many wholes in directing and in the story as well. I mean singing in ur car i can understand, but making faces to other people on traffic light makes him look like his on drugs. It would have been enough if he is just ashamed when realizes that he has been caught in his intimate fooling around. second is the gathering infront of the door, I mean they look like a bonzo family all of them going in front of the house waiting the boyfriend of their daughter, it would have been enough to have a living room with the window to justify the fathers replica about the boys car.
third: the dialogues are like form the 80s.
all in all it flows in the cliche of standards.

bad job boys.

Should have ended before he said "At least you have a nice daughter". Too much.

Isn´t it a Mercedes ad that is similar?

i love this commercial. it's PERFECTION.
im OK with the ending too - it allows for the awkwardness play out, and lets dad roll his eyes, which is a must-do in an ad like this otherwise it'd have felt incomplete
ps: he reminds me of a lot of guys :D, and he reminds me of a lot of dads :D
