Swagger Wagon

If you have been reading for awhile, you may remember this post rehashing the day we found out our dear friend Laura had gone back on our "no minivans ever" pact we made in our college days.  Back then style was far more important than function and the utter-uncoolness of minivans led us to create this all-important pact.  {See also: friends don't let friends wear mom jeans.}

Well, Laura was the first to have kids and shortly after, she broke down and succumbed to minivan ownership.  And she hasn't looked back.  These days you ask Laura about 'the mini' and she will PROUDLY tell you all of its award winning attributes.

So when the Sienna minivan commercials first started airing, I would stop the DVR to laugh at these spots that had to have been made in her honor.

This was my favorite for a long time:


That is, until this one came along. :


Sheer greatness.  Major props to the ad agency because, to me, this campaign is brilliant.
