About This TV Commercial

Sometimes the last thing you want to do for somebody ought to be the first. In "Neighbors," the creators wanted to portray a person who, in many ways, wasn't "deserving" of help. The character of Edna is a grouchy person. Yet the mother has taught her daughter the important lesson that their job as neighbors is to help out, without an expectation that their good gesture would be equally reciprocated.

I asked my 10 yr old son to help an elderly lady who was pushing a bike with a basket of groceries in the snow in front of our house...she smacked him with a newspaper and shouted, "You leave me alone! Go away!" (Shades of Edna) The lesson I tried to give my son was lost that time!
