Okay. You're back on ignore.
you don't deal with people well enough to run a restaurant.
best you stay "retired"...
Anyone who is offended by his commercial because the woman is portrayed as a stereotypical bitch needs to go outside more and toughen up their skin.
I can see being disturbed or depressed by this commercial; even angered, but offended? More evidence that people seem to be searching for reasons to feel offended.
As a film short I think the commercial is brilliant and the acting marvelous.
As a marketing vehicle I think it fails.

The TV Commercial titled Mistake was done by BBDO New York advertising agency for product: AT&T (brand: AT&T) in United States. It was released in the Aug 2011.
BBDO phones in this doofus-dad spot to deliver the message that "Only AT&T's network lets your iPhone talk and surf at the same time." It's well executed and appealingly cast, with the actor playing the nerdy young father working hard at both changing baby (he fails, of course) and engaging in "guy talk" with his buddy (presumably kidless, oddly jivey-sounding) about a football game that diaper dude hasn't seen. Mom delivers a textbook "my-husband's-an-idiot" stare at the end. The way-too-familiar setup and self-consciously goofy dialogue ("Dog, what's up?" "You know me, I'm just kickin' it") make this feel like a parody of familiar ad tropes. If so, a more over-the-top approach would have helped. Have the baby give investment advice or dance on roller skates—or better yet, explode, crash through a window and cause a 20-car pileup. Then we'll know for sure where you're coming from.
Note: this is not quite the boiler plate "men are hapless morons" ad with the wife at the end clearly taking on bitch qualities.
i agree completely w/ hawkeye's analysis, and wish him well w/ the restaurant.
The " I should have married John Clark" commercial is getting tons of playtime and has been running since August. There is Zero chance of this happening if AT&T was not getting what they want out of the abuse of men humor. The question that needs to be pondered is "why does this work?"

Thanks...and welcome to A2K, I like your thoughts so far. We might finally have another guy around here who is not either too weak or too stupid to speak up about how men are treated in America today. We are starting to develop a small troop of guys who demand that our voices be heard.....I look forward to seeing you on some of the other threads.
Are you a guy? Compassionate female?
Translation: "Please be my friend!"
No, I honestly don't think you have friends on this forum, or in real life. Most sociopaths don't. Nevertheless, your plea for Riley to be the third person in your "troop" is rather pathetic.
When I turned 21 the Boom Boom Room in Laguna was the place to go, they closed shortly after that. Then I started going to a place called Woody’s in Laguna, use to be the Little Shrimp where Rock Hudson use to hang out back in the day.
I remember a story this older gentleman told me, He had a roommate when he was 20 years old and someone knocked on the door, it was his roommates date, he opened the door to find Rick Hudson standing there.
The woman in the commercial is telling her husband that her own mother said she should have married another guy (because he's a loser). How abusive can you get?
