I don't care about the car but the commercial makes me smile every time I see it. Very, very good creativity. :)

I can see why! It's exactly how I envision a dad would see his little girl when she goes out into the world!

p.s. And I know that you didn't mean anything snarky. :)

I like that Subaru commercial, too, not withstanding that commercial is an excellent example of using the appeal to emotion fallacy to support an argument. The argument in this case is "You should buy a Subaru because..." And it'll probably sell more Subarus, too. I'm planning on using that commercial when we cover the unit on logic and arguments in my Critical Thinking course this Fall semester.


P.S., Nice tune. :)

maybe Subaru is trying to expand its appeal beyond the gay-lesbian crowd

Yeah, daddy's little girl is going to grow up. It is bittersweet. Kinda reminds me a bit of There Goes My Life by Kenny Chesney.

I'd post the youtube vid, but they make you watch a commercial.

I can understand the sentiment, but after busting my stones on an every other day basis driving my daughter to and from her PT job, I was more like "here's the keys to your car. See ya!" :P

We bought a Subaru - that thing is an absolute beast in the snow.

Knocked the Jeep off as the ski trip car in a heartbeat.

Subarus have been a blast to drive from day one. Even for hetero breeders such as myself...

LOL, been there done that.

But the commercial ring so true, in that it happens that fast.

The guy that wrote that one has definitely been thorough it.

As soon as I saw it I thought..."yea.... somebody gets it!"


Now I'm just waiting for my daughter to come back home from Europe so she can see it... but she'll likely just roll her eyes at it.:)

Have never seen the commercial. Traded in my Outback this year (207,000+ miles) for a Mazda 3. Needed better mpg as I'm working even further away now. I would've loved another Outback, but too expensive and mpg isn't so great.

Is this the one where the father is talking to this little girl in the driver's seat and the last part it comes back over and it's a teenager - he says something like "call me, but not while driving"
