The Truest Love Story Ever Told: Sparrow

This is the tale of two star-crossed lovers and the pair of faithful flip-flops that accompany them as they journey through life.

With a fateful meeting and a universe seemingly plotting against them, will their love -- and their shoes -- stand the test of time?

This is the inaugural episode of our series, The Melodramatic Romance of Domestically Produced Consumer Products.

In some ways, this is our love letter to the products that we use in our lives every day. In other ways, this is just us taking the piss out of overly-sentimental TVCs that are everywhere right now.

But underneath our jaded interiors (and exteriors) we really do love the simple things in life, like a damn good pair of flip-flops.
