Exotica father's day - a lot of effort, a bit less charm

You know Surya Bonaly? She was a French figure skater and is so far the only female skater to have done a backflip on only one blade. What she lacked for in Kataria-Witt-charm she compensated with brilliant technique. I feel this father's day ad from Exotica strikes that same note - a father is as wisest as a cedar, strongest as a cactus, sweetest as an arrowhead plant. As I said, a lot of technical gutso, but very little charm from the heart. Sure, the message is there, but it gets too convoluted. Bonaly never got a gold Olympic medal, Witt - with no backflip in sight - bagged two.
