How Subaru thinks "Cool Grandmas" act


Shown:  Grandma wants two milkshakes, not one.

Not shown:  This Subaru makes four extra stops during the 2-hour trip back to Grandma's house which to the granddaughter feels like two days.

Shown:  Grandma makes a dangerous spectacle of herself by running up to a total stranger who happened to glance at her granddaughter to get his phone number (and, I'm just going to guess because Grandma is a moron, give her granddaughter's number to the guy.)

Shown:  Granddaughter chuckles, rolls her eyes, and gives the total stranger a little wave.

Not Shown:  Granddaughter makes a mental note to change her phone number and to have a long talk with Grandma about mutual respect, boundaries, etc.  And about how this isn't the freaking 19th century or a 1950s sitcom.*

Shown:  Granddaughter drops Grandma off at Grandma's house.

Not Shown:  Granddaughter makes a mental note to never, ever spend time with Grandma outside of Grandma's own home ever again.

*how freaking old is Grandma, anyway?  Seventy?  That would mean she was born in 1950 and became an adult in the late 60s-early 70s.  How does her "let me run and get the phone number of a cute total stranger at a gas stop for my single granddaughter" gel with the times she came of age in?  


  1. Totally agree! When she runs after the guy at the gas station,it was like a rabid dog. The way she drinks the milkshake was like her first meal in days.

  2. Subaru does makes powerful engines and cars altogether. Subaru knows how to put on a show that will shock the world just as we witnessed the 2012 Subaru Exiga which I know launched a long time ago but the thing is I still own the car it runs great, I have already put 200k miles on it.

  3. I'm glad someone else thinks this is a crazy commercial, the milkshake scene makes me wonder when the last time she ate was. And let's get the serial killers phone number for my sweet little granddaughter, " Love you Honey ".
