Family and the holidays. It's a lethal concoction that calls for unconditional love, anger management and, thanks to this German supermarket ad, an entire box of tissues.
"Hello, Daddy. It's me. Hi, Grandpa! I just wanted to call and let you know that we can't make it for Christmas this year. We'll try again next year. I'll work it out, I promise. Merry Christmas, Daddy," said the daughter in a commercial for Edeka, a supermarket company in Germany.
So there sits German grampy, rejected and alone during the holidays. His children are too busy to care, and he's too old to deal with the pain. And he dies.
