A reader pointed us to this Wal-Mart commercial, in which a mom stocks her daughter's new dorm room with pink towels, a purple desk set, and an ugly rug. But where's Dad?
A second commercial depicts moms moving their sons in, but again, no dads. We can't find online — but will be psyched if you can — a third spot in which Mom buys her son everything he wants and needs for college, including a fridge to hold his... soda. Is Wal-Mart specifically targeting the single mom demographic here? Or do they just assume that taking care of kids' college furnishings — like making dinner — is a woman's job?
