The kids in this ad think waaayyy too much about Dad

When I wasn't being mortified and nauseous, I was trying to understand why Son is giving Father a condom before Father goes out on his fourth date with "Sheila."

Is it because Son has done a little E-Verifying and has discovered that "Sheila" has been around the block more than a few times, so Father better be careful not to pick up something unpleasant from his Lady Friend?  Is it because Father is dating someone half his age, and Son isn't interested in seeing a new Heir to the Suburban Mansion popping up nine months down the road?  I mean, what the hell?  Until Son pulled out the condom, I was pretty sure this was going to be an ad for Just For Men Hair Coloring.  That would have made sense (because we know from watching tv that grey hair is Very Bad And Wrong.)

I think I'll stop trying to figure this out and just go back to being mortified and nauseous.


  1. I had the same thoughts as you! I remember seeing an Aardman Animations produced commercial for condoms that was clever and funny. Nothing like this cringe-worthy mess.

  3. Actually, if you watch again, you'll hear that this is only the third date with Sheila, not the fourth. And that's very important, because you know why? The fourth date would've been too late. Because everyone knows that if people go out on not a first, not a second, but a THIRD date...DINGDINGDINGDING!!!!! The Sex Alarm has sounded!!!! Now they must Do It!!!! It's a RULE!!!! Why? Because that's what Society tells us we have to do! It's now or never!!!!

    ...Yeah, this is a pretty terrible ad.
