Maybe it’s true what my loving family says about me. It’s not that I watch too much TV; it’s that I read too much into what I watch,
This is especially true with the commercials.
Take for example that holiday blipvert up top for the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica…..
For me, this is the story behind the scenes:
Kathryn Hahn is playing a scorned ex-wife whose husband left her and their two teen-aged children for another woman who was already well-to-do.
The ex-wife struggled for awhile in trying to do her best for her son and her daughter and eventually, she did succeed in finding her path to a better life. And the first thing she purchased to celebrate her good fortune was a 2019 Chrysler Pacifica.
But it was her eldest child, the daughter, who came up with the idea to stick it to the father who betrayed the family. (Did you see how eager she was to pull off the stunt? “Let’s do this!”)
They drove to his new home and put on that “caroling” display as a seasonal in-your-face to their Dad. As they performed, showing him that they were going to be just fine without him, he was getting into the scene. Perhaps he was remembering what he once had and started to realize that – like Dorothy Gale – if he wanted to be truly happy, he didn’t need to look any further than his own back yard.
Meanwhile, the new Missus is O’Bviously pissed by their joyous dance on her property. And the fact her husband is enjoying it has certainly turned down her thermostat. Hubby ain’t getting any tonight…
Ho Ho Ho!
