I love the chunky dad bod guy from the SOTYKTU commercial

He looks yummy in those red Speedos.

On TV in America in 2023, that guy is considered GROSSLY OBESE which is why the daughter cringes in embarrassment when seeing him in the speedo

Of course, in the real world, he has a pretty rockin Dad Bod(TM)

by Anonymousreply 1March 12, 2023 9:53 PM

Oh he is so friggin hot. I'm assuming the creative who came up with the idea has a fetish or two. Anyway, I'm grateful because speedo dad is yummy.

I much prefer him to the chiseled-out-of-stone types. And he's handsome to boot.

R1, she cringes in embarrassment because her dad is wearing a Speedo period, not because of his body type. The stereotype is that Americans are very uncomfortable with men wearing Speedos.

by Anonymousreply 4March 12, 2023 9:57 PM

Oooh yeah 🥵 .I first saw that commercial on streaming a couple weeks ago. Yowza but Daddy there is almost totally my type (only thing missing is glasses)! Handsome, solidly built. I love some solid curves to rub my hands over. She is one lucky woman, damnit!

R4. Exactly! The speedo makes her cringe. She probably wouldn't want to see mom in a bikini either.

I agree hes cute and the dad bod is fine,but honey,he showed zero bulge. He might be hung like a gerbil.

Not only did he show zero bulge, there was no VPL at all.

LOL the YouTube comments all having a meltdown over the dad's "inappropriate" behavior towards his daughter...

Their Puritan attitudes clearly cause them to cringe at the slightest notion of men being comfortable in revealing their bodies in public...

I really don't think a national commercial would have the guy in Speedos where the head of his cock could be made out.

You can tell he has musculature underneath the body fat. I also wouldn’t be surprised if the belly bulge was purposely exaggerated (letting it hang looser than usual; tighter Speedo etc)

The best sex I’ve ever had was with guys who look like that. They know their bodies aren’t perfect, so they don’t have an attitude, and they know they have to step it up in the bedroom. However, because they’re hot enough, you’re actually enthusiastic to have sex with them; and because they’re not perfect, you don’t feel so self-conscious about your own shortcomings, so you can just relax and have great sex!

There are two reasons why the male model is fat:

1. It shows us that the drug is really effective in clearing his psoriatic skin, that he feels so confident in how his body looks that he feels proud enough to go out in public in a Speedo—something very few fat American men would otherwise be willing to do.

2. It is a way to show a semi-nude man on a nationwide television commercial without it looking pornographic and potentially offending a general audience.

No way, OP. He vibes like a pedo.

by Anonymousreply 32March 14, 2023 11:16 AM

This is a common advertising trope, the clueless male/husband/dad. This is a type that appeals to women as well as men because he's seen as relatable and "real," in contrast to a skinny, preening model or a ripped action star-type.

The character in this example is not meant to be seen as "fat," and the actor playing him is actually not fat at all. He's large and muscular, what we call "fit-fat." R30 is correct that he represents the after-effect of the medicine advertised and is meant to demonstrate a user of the medicine wanting to show off their psoriasis-free skin.

He is very handsome IMO, and looks sexy in the speedo. Yum.

by Anonymousreply 33March 14, 2023 11:42 AM

As a psoriasis sufferer myself, I totally get it. Whenever my psoriasis goes into remission, I feel so liberated that I want to wear short-sleeve shirts and shorts, something I never get to do. The actor wearing very little clothing is representing that feeling.

It is similar to the way people with toenail fungus feel when their toenails clear up. They want to wear sandals and flip flops everywhere they go.

The YouTube comments are overly negative, basically saying that the man is gross for wearing a Speedo and that he’s a perv for wearing such a skimpy bathing suit in front of his daughter. Interestingly, most of the negative comments are coming from women. What’s funny is that feminists have been claiming for decades that men fear women’s sexuality. RUBBISH!!! I’ve long said that it’s women who fear men’s sexuality. If a man tries to be sexy, it’s women who slap him down. Women can wear bikinis to the beach, but men have to wear board shorts, so just who exactly is suppressing whose sexuality?

What is moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis and why do tens of millions of Americans suffer from it? (based on the number of these ads I see every day on MSNBC).

by Anonymousreply 37March 14, 2023 12:59 PM

R33- The only Reason he’s not considered fat is because today we have the normalization of obesity. If before 1977 he definitely would be considered fat but with the normalization of obesity is no longer considered fat just a bit chunky.

by Anonymousreply 38March 14, 2023 1:08 PM

Jackie Gleason at the time was considered a tub of lard. Today he'd look pretty average.

(The average American male adult now weighs 200lbs and has a waistline over 40 inches. The average!)

by Anonymousreply 39March 14, 2023 1:40 PM

R39- There was a McDonalds commercial on YouTube from 1978. It should some teens . The girl liked the guy and the guy like the girl and finally the guy sits down next to the girl at a McDonalds. People were commenting on the video- EVERYONE was so skinny back then.

What we have today is the normalization of obesity so that the normal sized people of 1978 now look SKINNY.

This is the commercial I'm referring to. In those days everyone was slim. Today most people are fat or muscular or both.

R40 Some of us don't have to look at videos to know what teens looked like in the 60s and 70s! Or just compare high school annual photos then and now.

In America, the average male weight gain since the 60s is over 30lbs. That's enormous.

R36, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the type of women who comment on broadcast TV commercials posted on YouTube to say that a man in a speedo is "pervy" in a Helen Lovejoy-esque "Won't-you-please- think of-the- CHILDREN!" rant are probably not "feminists" concerned with the acceptance of "female sexuality."

Just an enormous hunch. But do go on painting all women with a brush the size of the Empire State building.

by Anonymousreply 43March 14, 2023 2:47 PM

R43, I didn’t say feminists were commenting on YouTube about this commercial. I was saying that it was feminists who told us that men fear women’s sexuality and try to suppress it. I say the opposite is true, and based on the YouTube comments from women—feminist or otherwise—that appears to be true.

R36... women can dress like whores on a beach but a man, even if he has a incredible body (ewww, too big, too muscular, he must be a stuck on himself steroid asshole!) wearing something skimpy is not allowed by society and in their minds?!

women can spend 24 hours a day on beautifying themselves, but men can't!

women call men "superficial" for only caring about looks and a body, but women are hypocrites because if a handsome muscle man has a big fat wallet, they would change their opinion about him in a super fast 180 degree turn, so women are superficial too, just in a different way....

ANY woman who is "disgusted" by a very built handsome man is more of a reflection of THEM and their inherent or learned insecurities....

anyway, in regards to the commercial, it is pretty surprising that a AMERICAN made commercial would have ANY guy in a speedo in a commercial. That's how far we have REGRESSED in this country. SO prudish especially when it comes down to the male body..

I'm old enough to remember on DAYTIME talk shows (!) they would have regularly male strippers on and in thongs and explicit dancing and so on. NOW? this stuff wouldn't make the air, daytime or nighttime and would be seen as disgusting, inappropriate, stupid, silly, plain wrong, etc.

Normally I go for bodybuilders, but this chunk lunk I find sexy......

Years ago when I live in LA, a bodybuilder/con artist I know booked a "before and after" ad for some kind of supplement. He took the AFTER shot right away and then joyously went on a two week binge vacation to get ready for the BEFORE shot. It was like watching a small child in a literal candy/burger/ice cream/pizza shop.

speaking of drug commercials, I remember (forgot the drug itself) a couple of years ago, a commercial where a distinguished older black gentleman was the subject of the commercial and at the end of the commercial he sat on a sofa and with a young boy (his grandson in the commercial?) and the scene ended with the two sitting side by side, but the young boy had rest his arm on the leg of the grandfather actor and actually rested his hand in/on the CROTCH of the older man playing the grandfather!

How in the world did the director, editor, and so on not see this and retake the ending of this commercial! I know, I know I sound like a perv/pedo, but it was obvious to me!
