Laughing Commercial

While I’m on the subject of TV commercials, there is a current one that I remember well. It is a Bounty paper towel commercial. It shows a middle-aged black man scrubbing off a stain on his kitchen counter with a paper towel that is clearly not a Bounty. It is falling apart and he is picking up strands of the paper. But a girl, who could be his wife but looks more like his daughter, comes up to him, does not say a word, but just looks at him, laughs in his face, turns, and walks off. He looks frustrated, but I would have called her back, and said, “Hey Girlie, you know so much about this, you finish the job. Now! Maybe you’ll learn some manners while you’re at it, Miss Smartie-pants.”
