Dad's a Spoiled Child in Subway Commercial
This Subway ad repeats the common television theme of dad as child. When husband and wife have two children, it's often portrayed as if the mom is the only adult and she has three children. Sometimes dad will be as childish as his children. Other times, particularly if the child is a girl, the dad will be more childish than his children, and his children will lecture him or correct his behavior. In the picture here you see mom in the standard modern TV "my husband is such an idiot" grimace. To watch the commercial, click here or see below. Thanks to Christian, a reader, for sending it to me.
