Clever take on the oldest excuse in the book, here is Zonajobs’ ‘Grandma’

Barring only “the dog ate my homework” or the classic dental appointment, the excuse of a death in the family (usually of the elderly female variety) has been utilised through time to get out of only the most boring, or most terrifying situations – often in the workplace. In this clever little advert, we see Grandma having a little bit of a tough time (getting pumped full of machine gun bullets, or peering into a car where a bomb-layer is detonating his handiwork) which is primarily the reason why this would never grace television sets in the UK. It seems the guys in Buenos Aires, where this ad was made, have got a bit more of a relaxed way of looking at the world and we like.
