I want to talk about how excited and proud I felt seeing cool dads put on such a pedestal in the Super Bowl 49 commercials. A great display of what it means to a father and on one of the largest stages with billions of people watching. Even more than watching, people really pay attention to these commercials.
Now that I am over the shock and disappointment of not seeing Beast Mode take the Seahawks to a second championship, I can revel a bit in the other things I saw last night.
First, Toyota’s “Bold Dad” commercial which was a touching display of how bold a dad innately becomes and why. #oneBoldChoice
Toyota jumped in again with “One Bold Choice To Be A Dad” showcasing former and current NFL player giving powerful testimonies about their dads and fatherhood … #OneBoldChoice
Next, Nissan who decided to introduce the world to their newly redesigned flagship, Maxima, in a heartwarming commercial about a hard-driving father (literally)that keeps his family in the forefront while his son grows up before us wanting to be like dad. They meet up at the end for an embrace of love and understanding. #WithDad
Last but not least Dove Men+Care “Real Strength” ad, which we reviewed on this site … #RealStrength WATCH HERE
One commercial that depressed a lot a people, especially this dad, was the uncomfortable Nationwide Insurance commercial about a child dying in an accident. Not for the Super Bowl, but I guess they do have people talking about it which is the goal … I suppose.
