Worst Knock-off Commercial Ever

This is from Garnier Fructis… Who the hell needs to be told by them how to be a man? But wait. It gets worse. Much worse. Not only is the general concept overdone and unoriginal, but they specifically copied another “man tip” from another commercial. How to get a ride home from a bar.
