Husband #1: No, no, it’s great.

Wife #1: As they say, it’s the thought that counts. [ hands him the resulting Polaroid ]

Wife #2: Happy birthday, honey!

Husband #2: [ disappointed ] It’s great.. thanks.

Wife #2: [ confused ] That’s it? It’s a brand new SUV.

Husband #2: Yeah. But it doesn’t have one of those huge, oversized bows on top. So I hate it.

[ cut to Flenderson’s Spokesman standing amid huge bows ]

Spokesman: When you surprise your spouse with a new car, make sure to top it off with a Flenderson’s high-quality oversized bow. If it isn’t a Flenderson’s, it’s not worth putting on the top of your new car that you give to your spouse for a gift!

[ cut to Husband #3 with his hands covering Wife #3’s eyes so she can’t see her new car with huge bow on top ]

Husband #3: Happy aniversary, honey.

V/O: Flenderson’s.

Wife #3: [ elated ] What a beautiful bow! Oh, my God!
