Asian American Commercial Watch: Vicks’ Amanda – Moms Don’t Take Sick Days

http://youtu.be/IOMKi49XMzs

Vicks_Mom_DayquilThis Vicks television commercial is a two-parter advertising both NyQuil and DayQuil, the first part portraying the dilemma for dad’s and the other for mom’s.

When I saw the the adult white male asking for a sick day, one imagines he’s in an office setting asking his boss for a sick day, the same when we see the adult Asian American female asking for a day off from her daughter. Although I’m not a parent, I’m sure all parents know that you never have a sick day when you have to take care of your kids (even when you are sick).
