DAMN Dad: Our Top 4 Father’s Day Ads

Posted on June 14, 2018, By KES

Father’s Day is a day to celebrate all the dads in your life. Whether it be a dad, stepdad or just guy stepping into the father role, DAMN Ads salutes you! This Father’s Day we wanted to highlight some  of the most thoughtful and emotional ads. Check them out below!

Jason Momoa | Carhartt Handmade Films


This traditional ad features a familiar face with messaging that speaks to all dads. Recognizing the values of hard work and tradition by having Momoa and others talk about fatherhood with real, inspirational stories.

Dove Men + Care

Dove is known for creating some of the most heartfelt, empowering campaigns, and this one especially for the dads is no different. This dynamic 30-second spot features not only traditional dads, but father figures who step into the role everyday, celebrating men in this ad.


We love this ad purely because of it’s cheeky copywriting and well-played shot at competitors. It’s an obviously funny pun.

SheaMoisture Men

This social media activation by the multicultural brand SheaMoisture included not only dads, but adorable kids as well! The campaign #mydadsmiles included video commentary by the dads on what made them and their kids smile. Ads that include dads + kids make for an unbeatable ad combo.
