Sales are dropping at the Coffee Spoon, and Mat is looking for a way to drive new customers to the shop. Thank goodness the rest of the neighborhood is filled to the brim with enough seasoned craftsmen of the film industry to create the best local ad Maple Bay has ever seen! Just kidding, have you ever asked a Dad to take a picture of you? What can we say? The Dads and their kids try their best.



Morning arose in another day in Maple Bay. Amanda and Dad walked down to the Coffee Spoon. Entering the shop, they noticed the lack of activity inside, alongside a strange noise emulating from the room. Cowarding behind Dad, Amanda believed it to be the aliens spoken about prior before being startled by Mat Sella, who introduced them to a theremin. The three also conversed on the shop's low activity and how to bring it up. Though Amanda suggested engaging on Dadbook, Mat and Dad suggested filming and producing a commercial ad to gain exposure. Aside from the agreed iseue that it should be the same volume as television shows, the two dads questioned who would direct it, everyone displaced when the voice of Robert Small interjected in providing his services behind the camera.

With the day surfing by, the three dads and Amanda gathered the cul-de-sac of other dads and Mary outside the Coffee Spoon, Robert assigning everyone a role in the production: Joseph on craft services, Hugo on script coordination, Brian on key grip, Damien and Mary on costume design and cosmetics department, and Mat as the star. Though he declines to take center in the ad, Robert turns to his second choice Craig and commanded him to remove his shirt.

Five hours past in the creative stages for ideas on how to get the commercial set, Robert informs the group that they would be unable to bring in Idris Elba and requested any further suggestions from others. Damien shares an artsy, abstract display of making coffee with vampires, while Brian offered the use of catch-phrases. After Robert mentions wanting to do a "Neo-French extremism" art for the camera with someone drowning in coffee beans, Mat makes the suggestion of filming within the coffee shop, which receives some shrugs and approval from Amanda.
