Meet Mr. Cooper, your Friend in Denial....
Is owning a home the American Dream? Maybe. I bet the kids in this ad would settle for financially responsible parents. I mean, look at these people- they've got a house in the suburbs they can't afford without rolling up credit card debt and making themselves vulnerable to predatory loan companies like "Mr.Cooper." They buy stuff then can't really pay for, digging a big hole for themselves while pretending that they are better off than they actually are, just so they can "give their kids everything" while maintaining smiles and relaxed attitudes that are fake or clueless or both.
So they'll sign with Mr. Cooper and get a debt consolodation loan using their property as security, and if they just keep on doing what they've doing to get into this mess in the first place they'll end up right back where they started- except, this time, in something a bit less substantial than that nice house in the suburbs. Where will the "American Dream" be then? Where will those stupid, vapid, fake or clueless smiles and relaxed attitudes be then?
How about living within your means, Stupid Suburban "Adults?" Maybe pretend that the "American Dream" is being happy with what you have and knowing how to set limits? Just a thought. But if it's a thought that doesn't seem particularly attractive, there's always Mr. Cooper there to help you delay your inevitable rendevous with Reality.
Just remember- it really is inevitable.
