If dead men could talk—or better yet, sing—they would tell us that putting flowers on their graves is a lovely gesture, but they would rather have had those buds while they were alive to enjoy them.

They can’t wake up and smell the roses, after all, since they “can’t wake up,” according to a playful new campaign from DoorDash that advocates sending flowers to men this Valentine’s Day.

The music-driven spot, more cheeky than morbid, uses a cemetery setting and some computer-generated effects to urge consumers to break the gender mold.
