How can we tell that this is a fairly old commercial for Lowe's?
It's certainly not that the father is being a bragging doofus doomed to fail. That's true in every commercial, and has been true in pretty much every commercial for the past thirty years.
It's not that the kid is a disrespectful, ungrateful little punk who is probably mortified at the thought of being seen with Dad on the front lawn. Again, this is pretty par for the course.
Nope- the way we know that this is an old commercial (it's from 2008, according to YouTube) is that neither the Dad nor his son seems to have a cell phone in his hand. What did people do with their hands back then?
