It’s seldom that you see men in a competent position on television. Most television shows and commercials portray us as barbaric fools, disconnected parents, or worse. So it’s nice to see a commercial so touching and against the trend. Dads, you are important.
More like “Not with Dad,” this ad shows an absentee father missing out on his son’s childhood. But his son is happy when he shows up with his new car at the end. So all Dad’s hard work in life paid off, didn’t it?
For years now, Go Daddy has been running sexually explicit ads that objectify women. Where was the public outcry demanding that Go Daddy pull those ads? It didn't happen. Do we truly care more about protecting puppies than honoring the women in our culture?
I was about to post about this yesterday when it broke, as I too have had a major problem with Go Daddy and their advertising practices. For years there ads have been horribly sexual and, as I.N.F.O writes, objectifying of women. While there have been murmurs and groans from Christians and other family-oriented groups, Go Daddy hasn’t once been forced to pull an ad. But when there’s even a chance that they could be supporting puppy mills— which I don’t even see when watching this ad— all Hell breaks loose and demands are made for Go Daddy to retract and apologize for their heinous ad.
Where are our priorities, America? As I posted yesterday, little shocks us anymore. We’d stand up for a puppy, but not for the modesty and dignity of women? Isn’t something wrong here?
