Nissan just dropped big bucks on a Superbowl ad that not only didn't show the usual stupid Dad, but actually celebrated traditional fatherhood and a traditional male role model.


Feminists bitching about PATRIARCHY in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..

That would be nice to see. AT&T U-verse has decided to pixilate every freaking channel. The inter net is choppy but the phone seems to work. It is worse than any thunderstorm rain-fade I had with satellite.

I have a trouble ticket in with them but watching anything is pointless.

The little life lessons from the sanitary napkin company Always, more than makes up for the goodness of the Nissan ad.

Actually, the MSM has been loving that ad, Borepatch.

Borepatch said...

Tam, it's been quite a while since I've watched MSM TV (or read MSM news) so I missed that. Quite unexpected.

Tam said...

Not at all unexpected.

It's important to avoid echo chambers. ;)

I, for one, was happy to see that ad, because it expressed one of the biggest problems/fears/dilemmas of any working parent.

You gotta earn the bread. You gotta make the money.

But at what cost?

How many things do you miss as a father or mother who works long hours outside the home?

In my industry, we spend long days away from home. Weeks at a time, we go to jobsites and don't come home until the weekends.

I was lucky enough to be home for my little girl's first three years, so i didn't miss the first steps and first words.

But I'm going to be away from home for #2. My new job starts in two weeks, and it is 84 miles one way from home. I won't realistically be able to come home every night, and it is already tearing me up that my daughter, who is due in April, will be without her Dad for three nights a week for most of her formative years.

That ad hit home.

And no, I don't think anyone is going to be against that ad at all. There was no patriarchy. Just a Dad and a son who missed each other, who were glad to be together.

It is a breath of fresh air to see a good Dad in a commercial, instead of a bumbling idiot who's family is rolling their eyes at his stupidity.

Well, you called it Ted, it didn't take long:

She says that ad was the worst and not only that "bad for America" ! Wow! That ad will ruin the country!

I think Chevrolet's ads were awful, simply stupid. Also, there was one with the vulture was equally awful for I think, a cellphone company.

And people get paid tons of money for this? Doesn't anyone at the companies have a say in what might go out there?

Given the number of soldiers male and female that are deployed and have to be away from their families, I wonder if she would feel the same if it were a mother deployed for months at a time who starred in that commercial.

It makes one wonder, doesn't it?
