Heh. That had plenty of comic value, though at least there's some interaction time between Dad and son.
I love the color of that car in the commercial, kind of a midnight blue.
When I was a kid, I knew a guy who had a midnight blue '64 Pontiac Catalina with one of the bigger engines, a 421, I think. Chrome mag-style wheels. Maybe one of you car experts can tell me whether a 421 was available in the Catalina in '64.

Don't know about the car, but at the very beginning of the commercial, the boy comes running from around the house with the dad asking if he found it. This would have been just after the dad had launched the ball to hell knows where"
