Weird gendering of holidays and marketing question: So, Steph and I were driving and we heard a commercial for Tommy John underwear. The premise of the commercial was “isn’t it hard to find your dad something for Father’s Day? Why not get him something he really wants. A bunch of attractive, well-fitting, stylish, high-quality underwear from Tommy John!”
Is this something anyone ever does? It just seemed weird. It seems like the kind of thing that you’d only ever make for a Father’s Day commercial and not a Mother’s Day one. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Mother’s Day commercial from Victoria’s Secret that says “having trouble finding a Mother’s Day present? Why not get her a nice push-up bra and a thong? Maybe match it with some thigh highs and some fuck me boots!” I mean, that would be insane, right? Or maybe I’m wrong…. maybe this is just the kind of thing that people do.
Am I the weird one here?
