Whirlpool's 'Dad and Andy' Champions Hard-Working Single Fathers

Whirlpool's latest commercial is one by the name of Dad and Andy, telling the story of a single dad and his son. The two are never pictured together in the ad, although we get to see how they communicate with one another via handwritten notes in a lunch box. This includes encouraging messages that wish Andy good luck on a school test, or urging him to talk to that girl he has a crush on.

Throughout the ad, the #EveryDayCare story takes precedence over the showing of Whirlpool appliances. Although it's apparent that there are ovens, fridges and washing machines in the house, they are far from the focus of this commercial. With Father's Day upcoming, Dad and Andy is a heartwarming way for the brand to reiterate that "Even when you don’t think you’re doing enough, you’d be surprised who notices."
