A big thumbs up for Mum: Mother's Day ads from around the world!

May 12, 2017

 

Whether it’s breakfast in bed, a bouquet of beautiful roses or a concert, footy game or rock climbing. It’s that time of the year again when we say a big thanks to mum and show her a little appreciation.

 

All sorts of brands also take the time to advertise in the lead up to and during mum’s special day. Take a look at the latest ads below... 

 

 

American workwear brand Carhartt Inc has a released a one minute film that pays tribute to strong hard-working women who just also happen to be mums.

 

 

This ad from Skittles really pushes the boundaries of good taste. Warning: a scrunched up face and exclamations of ‘gross’ is likely to be your reaction after watching!

 

 

 

A shirtless Fabio-esque character, chicken, and a romance novel. KFC’s Mother’s Day ad is based on a reading from the ‘Tender Wings of Desire’ novella. Very cheesy! 

 

 

Melissa Mohr, author of 'Holy Sh*t: A Brief History of Swearing', has teamed up with Kraft Mac and Cheese to deliver some helpful hints to parents for those not so perfect parenting situations.

 

 

Luma Flashback Mother’s Day Campaign:

 

Get your tissues ready, these P&G ads which co-incide with the Olympics are not for the faint-hearted as they aim to teach us a valuable lesson - that that the best things in life are free, and, no matter what, mum will be that pillar of support whenever you need.
