Since I've beaten up on Huggies for their sexist advertising in the past, I feel responsible to cheer Nyquil for making a gender-neutral parenting commercial. Actually, it kind of plays on an expectation that men work in offices. The way the beginning is shot, we're supposed to believe this guy is telling his boss he's sick. Then we get a little surprise when it reveals to whom he's really talking.It's not amazing. It's not rocket science. It just chooses to portray a father as a vital parent instead of a mother. We need more like this.
