I’ve had this new NyQuil Cold and Flu medicine ad mentioned to me a few times recently, and I finally managed to track it down online and watch it. It’s short and basic, but I love it and really wanted to share it with you all.
Vicks is a Proctor & Gamble company, and we all remember some issues fathers have had with them in the past regarding their omission of dads from the parenting picture. Additionally, Vicks NyQuil has had a campaign about “Moms can’t take sick days” which has gotten some flack for leaving out dads. So it’s great to see some follow-through on their promises that they had some about dads in store as well.
For it’s part, Proctor & Gamble recently answered a complaint about its ads on its Facebook page, saying “we’re proud to help both Moms and Dads #PowerThrough their cold and flu symptoms so they can continue to take care of their families.”
Really nicely done!
