If Nationwide's shocking Super Bowl ad left you feeling depressed, Toyota's dad-themed ad probably gave you the warm fuzzies (and left you with a few tears). The ad shows a dad being there for his daughter through various events — standing up to a bully, picking her up from a party, asking her to dance when she sat alone, and ultimately dropping her off for her military deployment — and comes with the tagline, "Being a dad is a choice. One that will make a wonderful human being who will make their own choices someday."
Toyota wasn't the only company to turn its attention to dads during Super Bowl XLIX. Dove Men+Care's "Real Strength" ad showed the softer side of fatherhood and how men embrace that role.
