A Nice Father-Son Ad from Rogers TV

Canada–A nice, father-positive ad from Rogers TV. Apparently the ad is the Rogers TV type of TiVo. Doesn’t the father-son interaction here look a hell of a lot more like you and your kid than the relentless parade of “dad-as-idiot”
commercials we’re subjected to?
