Watch a Son Deliver a Much-Deserved Demotion to His Supposed '#1 Dad' in This Harsh Little Caesars Ad

Spot out of Barton F. Graf Exposes a Father Who Was Ignorant of the Pizza Chain's Extra Most Bestest Deal

Editor's Pick

Lately we've been experiencing a glut of ads featuring awesome dads. That's why this new Little Caesars spot out of Barton F. Graf is so refreshing. In it, an utter failure of a father brings dinner home, claiming that he "got a great deal on pizza." His son mercilessly questions that assertion: "You went to Little Caesars and got an Extra Most Bestest with the most cheese and pepperoni for just six bucks?"

Confronted with having made the wrong choice, the father admits that "I got a terrible deal on pizza" -- at which point the son does what he has to do: He demotes his father by altering the "#1 Dad" cap he's wearing. Justice is served. (Overpriced dinner too, presumably.)
