Bad Boys: What You Gonna Do?

The Guy's Perspective has an interesting post about the curse of the bad boy which immediately reminded me of this commercial for Huggies (seems implausible, doesn't it?).

I'm not sure what it means for the fate and future of the bad boy.

Being spoofed in a diaper commercial could mean that the whole concept of the bad boy has had its day in the sun and has become the subject of jokes and not much else.

Being spoofed in a diaper commercial could also mean that the whole bad boy schtick is so ubiquitous that it has lost its oomph.

Being spoofed in a diaper commercial could mean that the whole bad boy thing is just a normal part of reality, and we are comfortable enough with it to joke about it.

Who knows?

And while I do have issues with advertising and have written about that not too long ago, this ad is very cute, funny, and analysis-worthy.

Plus, the little star has all the makings of a future successful bad boy, if nothing else. What a cutie pie!

Wow, I just got here from The Guys and found this! What a cute commercial. Yep, this little guy has all the makings of a 'bad boy.'

Cher,

How they got the baby to have "the look" is amazing!

So cute, I think some boys are born with that look.

ChrisJ said...

Cheri,

Yes, some boys are born with that look and some of them never grow up!

Pearl,

Yes, my dad does have a rich sense of humour, dry and witty, but with a touch of the absurd.
