Debatably one of the most entertaining and memorable commercials during last year’s Super Bowl was the 30 second Mr. Clean ad: Cleaner of Your Dreams, which aired during the third quarter of the game. The ad features a wife tired of cleaning who gets increasingly more turned on as her fantasy husband, “Mr. Clean”, uses Mr. Clean products to finish the household chores and concludes with a surprise ending of Mr. Clean transforming into her real husband, an average looking man. This ad destroys gender roles, showing that it is good for everyone when men help clean the house. Through the use of visual communication, verbal communication, and the timing of the Cleaner of Your Dreams ad, Mr. Clean effectively asserts that men need to help women clean while representing its intended audience, men watching the Super Bowl, and entertaining its target audience, people who buy cleaning supplies.

Lucy’s main internal conflict is looking for a “something so [she] could live” after Willie and Tom’s death (Warren 10.590).
He learns that Judy is married with children, but not happily. Her husband runs around all day as Judy stays at home with the children. Many readers find irony in the ending because no one would expect a girl like Judy to stay at home all day. Judy was the girl that always went out with the fanciest people and materials. Many would also agree that because Judy only cared for money, was cruel to Dexter, and her selfishness, lead her to this despairing
“Sweat” starts by indirectly describing Delia as a hard-working, Christian woman. She washes the clothes of white people and is very successful. Despite 15 years of marriage, Sykes, her husband, refuses to acknowledge that she is the bread-winner, and often abuses her because of that; along with the fact he despises white people, and their clothes are in the house.
