Super Bowl Ad Tracker: No babies were harmed in the filming of this HomeAway.com commercial (we hope)
Oooff! HomeAway.com's Super Bowl ad bemoaning a hellish hotel experience hit a soft spot, so to speak. Note to conscientious parent: Stay in a cramped hotel, and it could be your child face-planting a glass window.
In the ad, HomeAway.com, a company that finds home rentals for vacations and traveling, features a British-sounding government agent of sorts investigating the horrors of a family trapped in a hotel room. With the accent and the glass-wall room with a family inside, it appears that through their wizardry, they brought the Travelocity gnome to life and merged with it an ad for Windex.
Perhaps, as a follow-up, Windex can come in and clean the window smudged by a baby face.
