P&G Ashton Eaton Ad

Ashton Eaton won the Olympic Decathlon again. Amazing! And then NBC showed a P&G ad of him talking about his mother, and he said: “My strength came from watching my Mom. She’s put on a lot of good examples of putting herself before others.”

Putting herself before others? Is that what he meant to say? Shouldn’t the ad agency have caught that and said: “Um, is that what you meant to say?”

They really should have caught that and fixed it. Seriously. That’s on them, not on him. That’s their job, and they didn’t catch it. Oh, well…

I cannot seem to find this ad online. But it was on right after he won his second consecutive gold medal for the Decathlon in Rio on Thursday.
