Mimicking parents proves hit

Two cheeky boys charmed TV audiences when UK carmaker Vauxhall had them aping the grown-ups in this advert entitled Little Dads.

The 2004 commercial was the first in a series promoting the marque’s five-seat Meriva and seven-seat Zafira together.

The young northern lads chat like men about their families and brag about the abilities of their people carriers. 

Viewers quickly warmed to the pair, especially with their eye-rolling and dry asides about dad needing the loo before a journey.
