Nice series, but the execution leaves a little something to be desired. Maybe a little more time, that's all. Product placement could be treated a little more artfully too. Great strategy though.

Something out about the image, stops it looking authentic maybe the way the wife is turned

Reinforcing gender binaries through advertising is not new and unique. In fact I am offended bu this poster that states men should be unemotional. The highest rate of suicide in Australia belongs to young men, and rural men in particular. Half of this problem is being that they are constantly told that to be emotional is not masculine and they therefore don't seek help. I'm not placing blame on this ad for this problem, I'm not that ridiculous, but you are definitely perpetuating it.
