This Father’s Day Video Proves That the Internet Will Never Replace Classic Dad Advice
Entertainment| | By Margo Gothelf
Learning how to shave, asking someone out, and tying a tie is something a dad can always help out with. However in this day and age, many sons resort to asking the internet for help leaving their dads out in the process.
A new video by Gillette called “Go Ask Dad,” shows how the internet can never replace the classic dad advice and emphasizes the importance of a father-son relationship, just in time for Father’s Day.
The video states that “94% of teenagers ask the internet for advice before their dads.” The video continues to interview the dads where they share that their sons don’t really come to them for advice, unlike how they did with their fathers.
The sons then try out some classic tasks by asking the internet for advice. Spoiler alert: It doesn’t go very well.
Luckily, their dads were on standby because sometimes the internet just doesn’t understand. They were there to help tie a tie.
Show them how to ask a girl to dance.
And to get the whole shaving thing down pat.
They all agreed that the better teacher was their dads.
“For generations, fathers and sons have shared the iconic experience of a first shave,” Carlos De Jesus, North American shave care brand director at Gillette shared. “Our hope is that this campaign will serve as a reminder of the value of the father and son connection in all facets of life and encourage sons of all ages to reach out to their dads this Father’s Day.”
So next time you need some good advice, forget the internet and head straight to dad! Check out the full video below.
