Ad Anger

I actually have something good to say about a commercial.
A man surprised his family by decorating the house for the holidays while he was home alone. In it, the man showed pride in his home and its appearance rather than the woman being expected to take it all on herself Martha Stewart-style.
I am praising the marketing division for being equal opportunity, and not the actions of the male character who is allegedly performing this task. I think if you want holiday decorations, you're expected to help with them.
But I do think it's a rather sad statement that I have to work to find an ad that is not sexist.
FYI, it was a Home Depot ad and the family in question was actually African-American. No, I couldn't find a clip of it.
