This is an omnibus-style TV advertisement that consists of 4 stories on the subject of ‘father,’ with full of satires on Japanese households of that time. In the first episode, a drunken office worker staggers home. Finding a silhouette of his wife with 2 horns like Oni, a demon-like creature from Japanese folklore, he strikes a pose of the salute. Then, his daughter hangs a ladder for him from the window of the second floor. In the next scene, a man sees his wife and daughter off at the entrance hall of his house. Knowing his father is going to play a Mahjong game during their absence, the daughter closes her eyes to it. The third father does homework hard for his son. Finally, in front of a mirror, a young daughter cheers her father up with a smile.
