A German supermarket company called Edeka made a viral ad to remind people that they should overeat with their family for the holidays. In America we don't need to be reminded, but they don't have Thanksgiving in Germany. In the ad, a family calls their dad to say they can't make it for Christmas, so he fakes his own death to lure them to his mansion and bada-boom bada-bing everyone's happy for some reason! The fact that the sadistic old bastard would do something so horrible makes it clear why no one wanted to see him, but at least they all get to eat a delicious roast chicken from Edeka. Have fun explaining that your dad is actually alive to everyone when you get back. "Haha, he made us think he was dead. Merry Christmas!"
