Brands have always seen the power of emotional advertising to the mothers of the world. Just take a look at the ads from this year’s Mother’s Day and you’ll see what I mean. But recently more and more advertisers are starting to use the same strategies to appeal to dads’ sensitive sides.
With Father’s Day around the corner, we’re starting to see an uptick of these emotional ads, with dad at the center of the plot line. Dove Men+Care may have started this new “dadvertising” trend last year. Its Father’s Day spot premiered on Monday showcasing real life men finding out that they will become fathers.
