Are Dads Only Good for One Thing?

This Nissan ad caught my eye, both for its use of Salt-n-Pepa's "Whatta Man" and the portrayal of a dad as a bit of a dunderhead.

The husband is shunted aside throughout the 30-second commercial, only to redeem himself when it's time to strap a newborn into the car seat.

I resent this stereotypical depiction of fatherhood!

...if only because I'm not very good at installing car seats.
