Honestly, they had me at the title, but the fact that I know one of the dad's in the clip from my old Westside Dad's Meetup Group makes the clip that much more special. My buddy Trevor is the bald dude kissing his tow-headed little boy, Miles, near the middle of the commercial…you can't miss them. I think that's them in the insect costumes later on too. Either way, congrats, guys!
As any long-time reader knows, we are huge fans of the Oympics in these parts. I had a friend who once joked that the only sport Mrs. Yeti and I watch is “Olympics”, and he wasn’t far off. We might not watch football or baseball, but every couple of years we burn the hell out of our Tivo taping every event we can during the Olympics.
And with the Opening Ceremonies set to take place this Friday in London, well, we’ve been fools for anything Olympic-related for weeks now. So, when I caught an airing of the American-Mom only version of this new ad from Proctor & Gamble, I cried my ass off and thought it was brilliant.
But, then I found this International-Mom clip and, well, I haven’t stopped crying yet. It really is advertising gold. So beautiful! The only thing that would make it better was if they had one for Dad’s too. Enjoy and see you at the games!
