10 Ads Starring Great Dads for Father's Day

A celebration of the guy who's often a punch line

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

As Adweek noted recently, fathers are making a serious comeback in advertising. For years, they've been the punch line of endless commercials—portrayed as little more than a horse's ass (sometimes literally a horse's ass!). But there have always been ads that grudgingly, sometimes even happily, pay respect to fathers. Guys can only take so much ribbing—sometimes they need a little loving, too. Below, check out our picks for 10 ads starring great dads. Some of the spots come from Unruly Media's new list of most-shared dad commercials; others are just favorites of ours.
