For some reason, I don't like this commercial nearly as much.

I like it. 

Are you seeing it as shade? Like, why a black women couldn't get a man with two hands?

Thanks for salvaging my fail F8 !!!


This thing left me confused.

I was like WTF? A one-armed white man is better at cleaning than a two-armed black woman? Is that the take home message? I forgot all about the product.

Ah hayle. Maybe I need an aspirin.

1- I'm slow.  I had to read f8dagrat's post before realizing he has 1 hand

2-they are cute

3-he has one hand...meaning this is some kind of "awareness" type thing.  Why does a bw/wm IRR...or any IRR have to be a "thing?"

Yeah...I dunno.
I just don't get it.
Are there not better ways to promote disability awareness? I can't figure out the IR angle. Maybe they did it for the controversy it'll stir.

Still wondering...

He's an actor, but they're really married and he lost his arm to cancer.  When they set out looking for IT couples they hit the motherload.  I don't see anything wrong with the commercial though.

Man...maybe I am just seeing to much. It felt like I was caught in the middle of a strobe light. Just too much at once.

If that's his real life family- good for him.

But then, I always tend to think that we up their game. Not the other way around though.

i take the commercial as a one-handed person can operate a swiffer cause it is an easy product to use for someone like him....idk..

i love the part where the little child asks her daddy if he needs help...

maybe swiffer auditioned for folks like him...who knows...

Same reaction I had with the Cheerio commercial: indifference.

So it's gone be a whole bunch of IR commercial's since Cherrios' stock went up because of that "controversial" situation?

That said have y'all seen the new Cheerios commercial with the same interracial family?
