With Father's Day right around the corner, it makes sense that many brands are looking to capitalize on the fatherhood-celebrating holiday with a slew of dad ad content.

Another moving commercial thanks single parents, specifically single fathers.

The Dove #realstrength campaign (which acts as the brand's Real Beauty counterpart) demonstrates how caring makes dads strong.
