Anyone else seen the appalling Just for Men advert?

Dh and I nearly fell off the sofa with shock yesterday - E4 showed an advert for Just for Men, featuring two little girls who'd decided it was time for Dad to dye his hair so he could find a woman...

When my DD was 4 she was sitting on my DHs knee staring at him. "Daddy you should try Just For Men" said she, to Daddy's everlasting joy grin. The power of advertising.

I saw this the other day and was appalled

I assume it is American, surely only they would think that something so awful is a good advert

Hideous. Truly hideous.

Erm, it's a bit cheesy but I don't know why it's shocking or it would make you think it worthy of posting on MN. Am I missing something?

yes, it's so cheesy that it's worth a mention grin

Exactly southeastastra, so cheesy I had to post!
Plus it's just another insidious advert that tells our children it's bad to age naturally.
Every so often that gets to me enough that I feel it's worthy of posting, if only to let off steam
