Father’s Dad 2022: Best Dad Ads

Tip #1: Take an authentic approach.

By incorporating real video footage of dads doing what they do, Dove created compelling ads that nearly every family can relate to. Sometimes it’s best to skip the script and take a more organic approach, especially if your audience values authenticity above all else.

Tip #2: Tell a story.

Sure, there’s a time and place for concise, urgent messaging. But there’s incredible value in storytelling – setting the scene, engaging the audience, tying it all together with a memorable message. This Gillette ad does this beautifully by turning the simple act of shaving into a heartwarming tale.

Tip #3: Harness the hype.

The most clever, memorable ads are often tied to pop culture. For instance, this Star Wars-themed ad capitalized on the hype surrounding the franchise to send a special message to dads. Choosing fun themes that relate to trending topics is a great way to connect to consumers!
