Did you know: Even though 75% of dads believe they are responsible for their children’s well-being, only 20% believe this is reflected in the media. Shocker, right? Not. The bumbling dad has pretty much kept the sitcom world afloat and cleaning product commercials going for decades. Tough stain? Dad probably made it. Daughter has lopsided braids? Dad again. But speaking from experience, that’s a whole lot of nonsense. All the dads I know can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and get it on the table without the least bit of bumbling. Do dads do things differently? Sure, sometimes, and I’m going to say maybe it’s time for us moms to let that go.
This video was created by Dove® Men+Care® to sell skin care products designed (apparently) just for dudes, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still be a touching tribute to dads.
Seriously, give it a watch. I just plain lost it when you see the couple holding the ultrasound and hear the grownup son say “Dad?” but I’m also a total softy. I’m not saying it’ll make you cry but take a few minutes to play it and share it because the Calls for Dad video may just change the way the world look at dads.
