I don’t have the time to write all my thoughts here about the ad…. so I’ll be brief.
There are too many different angles to approach my comments from. Being a son, brother, husband, and father, I can speak from varied perspectives. I’ll take the role of the father.
As a father, I whole heartedly agree with the ad. I have two young sons. Even in their toddler years I see the importance of balance between discipline and discussion concerning their misbehavior when out of line.
From the “father” view I believe it’s a good way to resume his presence in the advertising world. As oppossed to shots of his signature, victory arm gestures.
