C'mon Get Happy: Dad's Voice From the Past!

posted by Heather White - 

Gina Rae Witt was trying to think of the best gift she could give to her brother, David Patinella--he was getting married, and she was looking for something perfect. Gina knocked it out of the park! She said there has been a family story forever, that their dad had been in an Allstate commercial back in the day. No one had ever seen it nor did anyone have a copy of it. So, Gina and David's dad, Guisto Patinella, died in 1994, after a long battle with cancer. Gina says they have tons of photos and clippings, but no audio and no video. So, Gina decided to take a chance and write to Allstate and asked if anyone there knew where the video was. If they could find it, would they send it to her. 

Much to her surprise, Allstate went through their archive and tracked it down. They then sent a copy to Gina, who surprised David on the eve of his wedding day.  David said his dad was his original best man, and he always had wanted Dad at his wedding--and now it was like his dad was there! 

 David says, "I'm going to watch it a million times. I love it. It's so great. Best present ever." 

Watch the video--it will touch your heart.
