Superbowl 2010 Commercials: Are Advertisers Trying to Tell Men Something?

The commercials are often the best part of the watching the Superbowl for me. Try as might, I still don’t entirely understand the game, but I keep trying. There were some commercials directed toward men that stood out this year. Particularly, adverts by Docker, Dodger and Flow.TV. If you didn’t catch them—snack or bathroom break—here they are:

Can’t find the FlowTV ad on youtube, but here’s the link: FlowTV

Unlike usual advertisements, men aren’t portrayed as gladly working themselves to death for their girlfriends and wives. Advertisers are basically chastising some men for having voluntarily become obedient lapdogs. What do you think?

    Dr. Palmatier. What happens to these abusive women in the future,after we break up with them? Do they ever get help and change? Do they go to prison or die young? Just curious.

      Hi Larry,

      Many repeat the same cycles and patterns over and over again until they draw their last breath. I think the ones who seek help are the exception, not the rule.
