by Abby Allen

In my initial post on this ad I was so excited about the family that I skipped over the fact that not only does this ad have an interracial couple and an amputee but the DAD IS CLEANING.

I agree wholeheartedly that this commercial is "a rare bit of respite from cynicism." Thanks again to my former team at Publicis Kaplan Thaler and Procter & Gamble for pushing something real.
