French Dad Hates His Family but Loves Football in Citröen's New Ad Wakey wakey, Rip Van Wanker

When you wake up looking like Jim Morrison and Brian Wilson's weird soccer hooligan man-baby, you've slept too long. You might want to get up, dust off the cobwebs and maybe get a friggin' haircut, ya big hippie. 

This delightfully absurd spot from French automaker Citröen and agency Les Gaulois opens with a groggy, unkempt man waking up from what appears to be a pretty satisfying Rip Van Winkle-ish snooze. He wakes up and shuffles to the window, and then we see him assemble the fragments of the years he slept through. 

Take a look below to see what happens next.
