A woman has to please her man, even when she is just a little girl?

Either that or the mobster bear which is able to get to your school and back and can therefore easily get into your bedroom and steal your eyes with icy cold paws while laughing like all the devils in Hell...?

heh, closest with the former :p The fact that having attempted to gain his attention in various ways, the advice she gets (from, as you say, the slightly scary mobster bear) and successfully implements...is winning him over with food.

I just. I don't even know, it just makes me want to break stuff.

Also, Dad gets home in time to eat food that takes approx 12 minutes to "cook" but of course can't be seen to make it, as we're selling traditional family values here.

Actually, no, that's a bit Millie Tant. There's a male of childbearing age in this advert, as opposed to every supermarket ad out there, where women frolic on the beach with children. Because no Mums have to work, but Dads do. Probably why Mums have to buy their kids' clothes made in Dhakar.

I'm sending mixed messages here. Probably because my objection isn't not really about gender politics, I just don't like seeing people happy in adverts. Or creepy bears with tiny eyes.

Right now, where's my prize?
I know you were only joking when you said I couldn't have one.

OMG I worked for that company -That commercial was the reason we didn't get a raise that year. And that's exactly what we were told too. "Sorry, the superbowl investment was more than we anticipated"

But now, its a great analogy for what I do in my classroom every day

riiiiiight up to the very last bit which bothers me as much or more as the one about the chicken. I disagree with their conclusion. It is **much** better and more important to be the Dad than it is to be their friend.


being friends is fun though, just not as important.

Don't see why you can't be both.

Side with V here.
I'm hazy about the whole friends/ parenting divide, but when your progeny are children you have to parent them.

I saw nothing in the advert which crossed the line, of course.
It's a good idea.
I just wish they hadn't added the tagline.

It's funny. I also cringed at the tagline, but didn't say anything at the time. I love being a dad and really enjoy spending time playing with my kids, but I make it pretty clear to them that I'm not their friend. I've actually said "I'm not your friend, I'm your dad" to them. But we still have fun together. I really enjoyed the ad though.

edit: although now that I think about it, there's the scene where they are scoping out the girls. That's pretty creepy. What dad is going to be scoping out girls with his son?

Ahhh. I watched it again and now I see what you are all talking about. I hadn't really taken on the detail of the strap line. I just thought it was a nice idea showing the Dad as also being his friend.

Setting that aside: hows about those two boys for cracking actors or what?

No! Dad isn't scoping the girls out. He's teasing his son because he recognises a girl from his son's school and thinks she fancies his son.

Yes. Although I'd like to hear one of them say Accrington Stanley.
