Just stop it!
So I was watching TV a few minutes ago, again almost flat on my back (it’s a theme of the day), when I saw this ad for Just For Men. It is, I’m guessing, trying to be cute but comes out creepy. It also made me ask way too many questions. Where’s the children’s mother? Dead, I’m thinking, but you can never be sure – maybe she ran off with a carnie. How long has she been gone? A month? A year? When is it time, exactly? What made the kids think their dad needed to dye his hair before he’d be attractive to other women? And, really, what kind of lessons is he teaching them by so readily agreeing to cosmetically alter (I was going to say enhance, but who can say?) his appearance in order to find them a replacement mother? There are so many, many things wrong with this ad that I wish I had grey hair so I could refuse to buy it.
