Is this Clorox ad offensive to you?
Well, it was for many fathers across the U.S.
In the last couple of years fathers have worked to remove the negative depictions of dads in the media. Commercials and TV shows have historically portrayed fathers as inept parents, buffoonish or just plain dump. There efforts have forced Clorox to remove the ad seen above and Huggies to take down and remake this Commercial.
So, it was a breath of fresh air to see the recent Peanut Butter Cheerios commercial below that portrayed fathers in a much more positive light. The commercial highlighted a fathers role and gave a small glimpse of the importance of his presence and contribution.
Great job General Mills!
