This Grote Automotive Mother’s Day themed commercial is loosely based on the children’s game. “Mother May I?”
This spot was fun to produce with Brian looking very Jonathan Winters in his “grandma” get-up.
A couple things to look for in this spot – The paintings are the wall are all altered to be Fred Grote themed. The Blue Boy and the Cherubs both have Fred and Brian’s faces. The “Grote Gothic” top center features the American Gothic couple visiting the Grote dealership. Also, the house features in the “Get rid of the car you hate” shot is a photo of the actual American Gothic house. I thought it fitting considering the very retro feel of this commercial.
This commercial was produced for Grote Automotive im May, 2016.
