Ace Hardware's "Grass"
This ACE Hardware spot parodies home improvement shows. "Grass" finds a homeowner returning from a trip to Ace Hardware with products he intends to use to fix his lawn. As he exits his car, a crew from Shortcutz, descends upon him, and the host insists that he can give this guy a new green lawn. By spot's end, he has a spray painted lawn. Use products from ACE if you want the job done right.
