I almost feel sorry for the guy in this Behr Paint commercial
The look of sheer terror that appears on this guy's face when he finds out that his girlfriend will be arriving earlier than expected is, I suspect, supposed to be funny. I don't find it funny. He practically wets himself in panic as he rushes to complete a ridiculous paint job (one coat of white over- what the hell is that? Purple? Seriously?) in record time, not only avoiding a single drop of paint landing anywhere other than the walls- not on his clothes, the wall, anywhere- but apparently not even leaving a freaking fresh paint smell.
Back to this woman- the way she's shown approaching, it's pretty easy to imagine that her would-be fiancee is in for a serious beat-down if that paint job is NOT done on time. She walks into the apartment like she's going to tear him in half if she even suspects he did a rush job. Was he supposed to paint this place a week earlier and just f--ked off, figuring he had plenty of time? Does that even matter? I mean, jesus, who the hell would buy in to this? She's not THAT good looking!
Anyway, congratulations Eurotrash doofus for managing to get that painting done- and everything cleaned up just right- before She stepped in the door. Now you can hand her that rock and set yourself up for forty years of being absolutely terrified of her. Way to go. I'm sure you deserve each other. Have fun waking up in a cold sweat every once in a while after dreaming that you forgot to buy toothpaste.
