Confirmed: It Is Possible For A Kids’ Sneakers Commercial To Make You Want To Vomit

Jessica Wakeman / February 27, 2013

These sneaker wedges are totally cool. This commercial that’s been running on MTV? Not so much. Sketchers’ two-inch-high sneaker wedges are called Daddy’$, pronounced “Daddy’s Money,” and the tweens in the commercial sing about a “hot daddy’s girl” — all at once innocent and sexy and spending your “daddy’s” cash. Not your own money or your family’s money — your daddy’s money. (Do they mean your actual daddy that changed your shit-stained diapers or your creepy older boyfriend? Not clear!) This commercial just gives me the skeevs and not just because the person who bought and paid for all my sneakers growing up was my mom.  [Babble]
