GK: It's Father's Day Sunday and what better way to honor Dad than to give him a Power Grill from Speedway. Slow-cooking is fine when there's time but the Power Grill cooks meat all the way through in five seconds flat (SFX). It's for those times ---- and they happen to all of us ----- when you look out the window and there's the Johnsons getting out of the car and you remember, this is Friday. No need to panic. Just pull out the Power Grill and do the meat (SFX) and speed-bake the potatoes (SFX) and speed-whip them if you like (SFX) and throw the greens into the shredder (SFX) and you've got salad. From Speedway. Life is too short not to cut corners.
