You might have seen Lysol’s tribute to the fiercely protective moms of the world, across the animal kingdom. You might have also noticed the backlash, because Lysol overplayed their tribute at the expense of, well, dads. An otherwise touching and shareworthy video, their catchphrase “No one protects like a mother” has alienated some dads who would like to think they’re good protectors as well.
Of course we agree that there’s a special kind of passionate safeguarding that moms deserve celebration for. It’s why we made our Mama Bear Mother’s Day tribute video. But we don’t have to do it at the expense of dads.
So happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there – the lion mamas, bear mamas, eagle mamas, elephant mamas, and monkey mamas – but most of all, to the human mamas that rock our world!
