Has anyone seen that Dulux paint advert where the father is talking to his newborn by narration and all you can see are blue walls with a football mobile above the crib and he says he had it all planned and that ‘you’d’ make it big as a footballer and he says that ‘you’ took them all by surprise, and then you see him painting the walls pink and he swaps everything so its girly with fairies and flowers and stuff?
Like God forbid a surprise baby girl have blue walls with a football motif, can you imagine what it was like at the hospital?
Mother: OH God we have a girl! Quick, go buy some paint and change her room before she begins to get ideas about equality!
Father: I’m on it! No daughter of mine is going to going to grow up as anything less than a girly, girly baby making machine!
I know it’s only a paint advert but it really annoys me how they can be so blatant!
