Subaru Forester "A life story on the line" (2018) :30 (USA)

Fun spot that celebrates longevity as much as it does Subaru though the voice of a woman who narrates her life story (with a Subaru never far away.) We see her leaving one as a newborn during the winter of '77. Meeting her future husband in fifth grade, getting married after college and then having twins. But then one night a truck didn't stop. And thanks to their Subaru Forester, neither did their story. Unlike say Toyota Corolla's Style Never Goes Out Of Style spot which showed people dancing (literally) around cars through the years, this spot showcases old Subarus through the years the way they were meant to be. As a part of your life, not some superficial thing. The subtle implication here is that Subaru is a part of your family.
Very well done and I greatly enjoyed the camera work, too as it really helped tell the story and pass through the years with ease.
