a commercial that disturbed me...

Yesterday I saw a commercial for children's Tylenol.
It had these moms singing "you are my sunshine" while sitting on the edge of a completely full bathtub and rocking fully dressed sleeping kids. Like 5-6 year old kids.
My husband says "she looks crazy, like she drugged that kid and is gonna drown them".

At first I said wtf?! But then I thought about it some more, and holy shit he's right! Why wouldn't they rock them in their room, or a rocking chair or something? Why on the edge of a full tub when its clearly not intended for a bath?

Now I'm thoroughly disturbed by this commercial.

Have you seen it? What are your thoughts?

Well. No I don't see this as distrubing.

One: Kid probably barfed all in the toilet, or is getting ready to barf.

TWO: The bath is to make them feel better because a good long soak always makes you feel better when you're sick.

I think..you're putting too much thought into it. lol Anything can be made to seem disturbing, if you really think about it.

omg, its for the steam from the bath.  u  never heard of that, when a child is sick, congested, to run the hot water in the tub.  u never heard of that for a sick child?  i do that even for me and my hub when we are sick. the steam helps with congestion.

When kids r sick its good to turn on the shower fully hot and let then breathe in steam. I've rocked plenty sick kids in the bathroom.

They were fully clothed, clean, and sleeping.
It definitely didn't seem like she was about to bathe them.
Lol

I would assume that the bath tub is full of Luke warm water to help bring the child's temperature down not that she drugged the child to drown them.

i think your DH is a bit weird for thinking that... ive seen the commercial and ive never noticed if the tub is full or not. she could be singing to them in the restroom in case they want to throw up or something. idk.. what your DH said is kinda weird but it would never cross my mind.
