Procter & Gamble‘s ode to Mums in association with the 2012 Olympics was balanced up with “Here’s to Dad”, a Gillette commercial featurin Ryan Lochte, Tyson Gay and Roger Federer. Sometimes complex, sometimes confusing, but almost always rewarding, the relationships we have with our Dads can be one of life’s most powerful bonds. This commercial celebrates Dads everywhere, by recognizing the man behind the athlete…the man behind all of us.
