Mazda's Celebration of the Mid-Life Crisis
Ugh, where to start?
First, this guy's incredibly cliche'd life (seriously, "cliche'd" doesn't really cut it. There should be another word that's stronger than that, but I don't know what it is of if it even exists. If it doesn't, someone needs to invent it...)
Because good freaking lord, according to the scriptwriters this guy dotted every "i," crossed every "t," and did absolutely everything exactly the way he was supposed to do it in exactly the order he was supposed to do it. His first car was a hot red Mazda convertable (uh huh.) He rocked with his band. He got serious, got married, settled down, had 1.5 children, moved to the suburbs, bought a house with a big mortgage. (Not Shown: his soul actually dying.)
And then, the day after he noticed his hair was thining and he had these wrinkles appearing around his eyes and he was getting up twice a night to use the bathroom, he went out and bought himself- a flashy red Mazda. Groan.
(Not Shown- though I really wish it was: Mazda guy cheating with the babysitter, handing half his income to his wife in the settlement, and wrapping his new Douchemobile around a tree a few days later. I mean, might as well complete the cliche', right?)
