Here in Michigan, they play this ad for the Great Wolf Lodge, a type of indoor water park and lodging thing. They try to put fun things first. The kids yell at the parents in this one. "You're not getting any vegetables until you eat your ice cream!!" "Scream louder or I'll turn this raft around!!" Okay, the KIDS telling the PARENTS what to do just makes the parents look weak and stupid. Getting bossed around by your own kids is pretty sad. At the end, the kids say, "They're so cute when they're sleeping." Why do ad people think that the public will find the kids-telling-parents-what-to-do premise is cute/amusing? It's not!! It's Censored stupid and the idea should never have been though of.

Thank God I've never seen this commercial (although I do know the exact trend of which you speak). I would have put my foot through the TV screen. I hate kids portrayed as little adults.
