F'd Ad Fridays: Mother's Day Edition

Ah, Mother's Day! A time of flowers, cards, breakfast in bed... and housework?

Yup. According to Copyranter, this is probably just a case of shitty copywriting — the intention is "Magic Eraser is so easy, you can sooner get back to being with your kids". But even that context reeks of cleaning-product-scented failure.

Also from Copyranter is this awkward billboard:

Way to make people who have lost their moms feel good, guys...

But hey, it's not all dead flowers this Mom's Day. You can also have a few laughs at the expense of the institution of motherhood by watching this unbranded viral video by Biscuit Filmworks (via AdFreak) Stephanie "Flo from Progressive Insurance" Courtney as the world's most irritating stepmom:

On a more serious note, Happy Mother's Day to my Mom Marylil, my wife Julia, my Mother-in-Law Margaret, my sister and sisters-in-law, and all the other great moms out there. We love you.
