What I'm loving about the Honey Maid campaign - in addition to its approach to the criticism - is that it's so dad-focused. The gay dads, the single dad, the military dad, the punk rocker dad ... that's refreshing.

Is this the commercial you're referring to, ikmccall?

It's actually for Residence Inn.  Other than that, I agree with you.  It's one of my favorites.

Exactly, real American families, besides the white/ straight/ Mom and Dad stereotype. Like the new Swifter one too.

I don't really like graham crackers. However, Honey Maid just went on my shopping list.

I just saw This Charmin Relief Project commercial today and I really did laugh out loud! http://www.youtube.c...h?v=9MRLE4522jo

In the Honey Maid response, I thought it was a nice touch that the artists rolled the negative comments inward and the positive outward.

While I agree with Honey Maid's sentiment, I wonder if the campaign was specifically designed to troll the homophobic public, in order to set up their wonderful response. 

 

If so, it doesn't diminish their message of tolerance. But personally, it would push it into another case of emotionally manipulative advertising.

Well done, Ford. They just released a spot-on parody of that asinine Cadillac ad

Late to the party...

Why aren't they airing this on TV? Love it!

(BTW, that's what my hair looks like right now.)

I really like the Tide commercial with the dad talking how he grew up with brothers, but his three beautiful daughters are even messier. I want to say I like the message that the daughters aren't prissy little princesses and dad's doing laundry without any major problems, but really I mostly like the dad because something about him reminds me of Alton Brown.

I love the "Can I help?" "Aww" "Just kidding!"  My grand-niece is in a "just kidding!" phase, so that cracks me up!

I'm already a sucker for the Milo's Kitchen series of commercials touting their snacks with a proud dog mom sitting on the couch talking about how her (adorable) Border Collie is one of her children and 'interpreting' his reactions as she feeds him treats. Now they have a new one, where she finishes by saying that he loves the MK treats almost as much as making new friends, and the dog nudges gently, so she says, "I'll call her, I promise" and he does it again and she laughs and says "Such a ladies' man". Reminds me of our own 'playa pup' who despite being neutered has quite a string of girlfriends...

My favorite all-time commercial is the Totino's Pizza ad.  It's prom night, and a young man sits waiting for his date in her living room next to her father.  Nineteen-fifties blues music is playing, the boy (dressed in his brand new Black suit and shoes) looks at his date's father and smiles, it's all the father can do to suppress a sneer.  The date finally comes downstairs, looking gorgeous.  The young man smiles, eagerly, then looks at the father and quickly swipes the smile off his face.

I love the guy in the Pringles nacho commercial who is double-dipping in the imaginary salsa. His face is so funny.

Also love the look on the girl's face who is out to lunch with her friend talking about the Chase points and how the other girl's date is using her for the points. I love when she knows she's busted.
