AAAh you did put them mainpage did'n't you ivan. This is indeed the place where they should be. I like them very much. Very subtle

The mug says dad, there other two ads sho a towel clearly marked his and a men's shoe trampling a woman's show. All the references to the person abusing is for a male and the person abused is a female so why are they trying tobe politically correct by calling it "Spouse Abuse". Just call it wife abuse or abusive husbands.

Yeah, it's kinda stereotypical. Unfortunately I also know men who have been abused by their wives, but can't picture this ad reveresed. Kinda points out that Husbands being abused is not recognized in our society.

For me this makes it even worse. Knowing that the person beating and abusing at the same time is a father. For a child hearing his/her mother cry late at night when your in bed because your father is beating her is hell.

LOOOL! What's that supposed to mean?
Violent husband is torturing his wife by damaging her cup?
Am I supposed to associate my parents with two cups? Hm, well. No. Don't like it.

Made me feel pretty sad. But that's the effect the ad is supposed to have
on the viewer right?
Thumbs up!
