General Mills AD (#Howtodad)
Finally a commercial that doesn't make men/husbands out to be bumbling, fumbling idiots.
Most of these ad agencies are being run by feminist cunts and its great to see a change. Are we finally at a point that people are seeing Feminism for what it really is and ignoring their cry for attention?

Although there is a subtle hint of stay at home dad/career wife about the whole thing.

Anyway, enjoy the commercial.

Yep. Red Pill and Advertising do not belong in the same sentence. Red Pill is seeing through the illusion of what advertising tells us is "right."

Anyone notice it sounds like Marilyn Manson's voice at the end (the song)?

RE: General Mills AD (#Howtodad)
I disliked this dude's face and manner, and most particularly the Xer didactic baby talk. "Dadhood is awesome", "kids think we're awesome", "we tell hilarious jokes", "being awesome isn't about making rules it's about breaking them", awesome this awesome that, always trying to lecture you in that baby talk. I found the commercial distasteful, and see it as no different from all the others of its kind.

Strictly speaking, meth doesn't calm you down, it hypes you up. Uh, I mean...that's what I HEARD!

He's talking about the paradoxical use of speed analogs like Ritalin and Adderall to turn kids with "ADHD" into zombies. There is a well known effect there where these speed analogs actually do "calm them down", in a certain way.

He was talking about adderall which calms ADD kids.

You guys are all knocking the video. I see this as a step in the right direction. Sure it may may not be on part with our outlook, but OP is right, it's not making the guy out to be a useless, bumbling idiot.

RE: General Mills AD (#Howtodad)
He's woken up by his kid apparently a few hours after his wife has already woken up (she's fully dressed, which I assume took a little bit longer than 10 minutes. Gotta impress that alpha boss at work!) to go to work. Wife (fat, unattractive, AT LEAST she has long hair) doesn't do a thing to help with the kids, and heads out so Stay-at-home Dad can get to work. There isn't anything Red Pill about this at all. If you ask me, this ad serves the FI, as it tries to make the idea of a Stay-at-Home dad seem "FUN", "AWESOME" and "TOTALLY RESPECTED". This ad was made by those feminists marketing teams. They just might be smartening up to the fact that if they keep knocking men, it'll become a problem.

Also, let's be real. If ad didn't have an FI agenda, why was the wife so homely looking, while the guy was very good looking?

Yeah I think this ad is pretty shit. It could obviously be worse but that's not very encouraging.

Hey, people are spreading messages I agree with, and trying to appeal to me!

What message is being spread in this ad that I should agree with? This ad is a wolf in sheep's clothing, and the fact that an ad is 99% in line with the FI has a single member on this forum praising it is insane.

It could've been a lot worse, but it doesn't really deserve an attaboy. General Mills decided to portray a stay-at-home beta trophy dad with an ugly career woman wife as some sort of hero.

It's sort of like a glimpse into America's future. Fit dude with an ugly fat woman, a bunch of bratty kids and a horrible diet.

RE: General Mills AD (#Howtodad)
This commercial was 'off'...which i guess is better than blatant. The only way a white family would have that many kids would be if they were hardline christians and then in that case the dad and the mom may look like that..but then all of the kids would be saying a prayer together at breakfast and no way the teen girl would have facebook.

If they had modified it only slightly it would have done better such as:
1. Instead of the coffee its a Dad handing some young slut cab fare and patting her ass out the door as he rallies his children of divorce out the door before getting himself off to work.

RE: General Mills AD (#Howtodad)
lol Dr. Howard.

Christian families in the South and Midwest would let their daughter have facebook...

It's not like those of us who have grown up in the heartland still have outhouses and burn witches...lol.

And 'good' Christian girls are rare. A lot of Christian girls are slutty.

It is interesting that in the US the higher quality girls in the South and Midwest are usually the richest, and are also the most submissive. They still have strong fathers they respect, and although poorer girls maybe more slutty younger, they most basically take themselves out of being marriage material, even if they are attractive enough when younger, because of their blatant lack of respect for men in general usually due to being raised without a father or one who's been massively disrespected.

RE: General Mills AD (#Howtodad)
I like the fact the commercial shows the dad at least has a lock on the leadership over his kids. They respect his leadership and follow his orders, just like well-behaved kids should do. And he's firm but protective and gentle with his kids, just like a good father should be.

When that first kid wakes him up, the dad immediately takes charge of the interaction and throws the kid off him for the slight disrespect of waking him. He then goes around taking charge of his whole family as they start their day. He tells his other son how to fix his hat, and the son obeys. My favorite is when he only has to point at the garbage and say "it's garbage day" and the youngest kid immediately picks up the trash and carries it to the curb without any bitching. Then the whole commercial ends with the dad in front, leading his family like a general leading his troops.

Is it a little beta with the frumpy wife? Of course, but the commercial has to be in order to have a large mass appeal.

He's feeding them CEREAL. Is cereal off-limits to the entire RVF community now? Should he be feeding his kids steak and eggs for breakfast and juicing them some leafy greens?

His kids seem well-trained to calm down just on their dad's command, too. No meth needed!

I only counted 4 kids, which really isn't that many. It looks like the commercial producers chose that number on the combinations of teen/toddler and son/daughter so that every dad watching could identify with having at least one of those types of kid.

I gotta say it's not America's future...it's pretty much the right-here-and-now!!
