Dad’s on TV

There have been a few discussions I’ve read over the last while which cast dad’s in a bad light, showing them to be stupid or incompetent. Which is not always the case. There were also a few posts by bloggers in the US about the efforts being made to improve the public image of Dads.


I don’t know how prevalent this drive has been on this side of the water, but I’ve noticed that there have been 2 good adverts on the TV which show dads in a good light.

The first is a bit of an older one from last year which Halifax Building Society used to promote how it likes to support great people who put in the extra and deserve a little extra.


OK so Mark Watt’s isn’t a dad yet but it’s still a nice ad.

Anchor Butter have also a new ad running this year, and I think the it shows the dad here in a great light as well. Doing the things that we dad’s do best.
