The writers of How I Met Your Mother have done it with notafathersday.com. Barney(Neil Patrick Harris) was excellent in the episode “Not a Father’s Day” (it reminded me a lot of Scrubs, when Jordon told Dr. Cox that she was not pregnant and he went running through the streets screaming with excitement). The Who’s Not Your Daddy shirt’s and other merchandise was priceless. And the cheerleader effect was well thought out and so very true… I’m still pretty confused about the actually date we need to celebrate, is it November 10th?
Still… it’s an excellent use of off t.v. show marketing, you gotta love when shows do that. Check out the site, notafathersday.com; buy a who’s NOT Your Daddy shirt; or just re-watch the show..quite legendary. To encourage you to visit the site here is my favorite not a father’s day postcard from there:
This advice is really going to help, thanks.
shouldn’t it be celebrated the day before Father’s day? One day you aren’t, the next day you are.
Even though this is a joke I have thought this often: why do those who chose not to reproduce get penalized for making this equally valid decision? why is it that those of use who decide to remain childless are always being told “you don’t know what you want just wait til you get older you’ll change your mind.” no no I won’t and I have taken permanent steps to avoid that possibility.
