Who's Your Daddy?

Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there. Here are a few advertisements that are sure to make this day special.

This one is for the Eagle's Nest Restaurant in Cypress, CA. Why did they chose to use the same man in the two father/son images? Does this guy have a second family on the side?


Here is something I found on the blog Random Banter. It's from a Macy's Father's Day flyer. What kind of message does this send about fatherhood?


Finally, another gem from the folks who brought you the "journey diamond" Mother's Day ad. This one is also irritatingly unrealistic. I get the connection between the text, "every moment spent together," and the image of the watch. But as with the Mother's Day ad, there is a weird discrepancy between the "tender" message and the consumable item. If your son can afford a timepiece like this, shouldn't you look into what he's been doing after school?
