Sears, Paint and the Betsy Ross House

This commercial is for Sear’s and its easy living paint and the main thrust of the ad is just how durable this paint is and how it can stand up to wear and wiping at the such “famous” places as the Betsy Ross House. They then show this kid and his home touching a wall with his muddy paw and streaking it with dirt. This sort of behavior fascinated me when I was younger. One of the first things I learned was to never touch the walls in our house. It is a behavior that has stuck with me to the present day.

The take away SHOULD be, teach your kids to keep their hands to themselves.
