Before I had Jack, I traded in my tin-box on wheels for a Subaru and I’ve never looked back once. Those heated seats, the automatic transmission, yeah, that’s luxury. haha. I’m serious too (in the nerdiest way possible.)! Subaru’s marketing team has me pegged to a T. Every single commercial gets me. The one where the mom and daughter are in the community garden with the wheel barrow — Me. The other one with the man and the chocolate lab puppy, which fast-forwards to the guy getting married, having a kid and you slowly see the dog get older and more grey — wahhh! I can’t take it! And now the latest one of the handsome dad waiting with his young daughter to get picked up by the school bus. I’m crying as I type this. It made me think: that’s gonna be me someday!!! It’s so good. Watch and I bet you’ll have a spontaneous allergy attack come on.
I love the song by Tashaki Miyaki too. She has a voice that reminds me of Hope Sandoval (or Mazzy Star — my ultimate fave) and the background music has a Velvet Underground sound.
P.S. Thank you, my darling friend Alicia for sending this to me!
