J.C. Penney Believes
Father's Are Incompetent

J. C. Penney is airing a series of TV commercials that depict dads as complete incompetents with their own children. There are, we believe, five versions that all have the same theme: mom has gone to Penney's one day sale and dad is completely out of his element. Imagine women being denigrated this way over, say, having a job outside the home. I can see it now. The husband prepares a great breakfast for the wife and kids and she rushes out, brief case in hand. She gets to her new corporate job, has a report due, and can't figure out how to work the stapler or even how a paper clip works. Since that's not going to happen, figure J. C. Penny just isn't a store for men.
