World’s best dads: Lotto celebrates the awkwardness of fatherhood

The residents of StopPress towers are huge fans of both dad dancing and awkward high fives. And NZ Lotteries and DDB have made all our dreams come true by combining these two wonderful things into one ad in an effort to drive sales of Lotto tickets for Fathers Day. 

This industry is often criticised for creating unrealistic expectations of body image. This one, with its glorious collection of bald, grey, fat and decidedly unfashionable dads, might balance the ledger somewhat.
