Lotto New Zealand illustrates the magic of mums

Special effects illustrate cleanup, cooking and care tasks that are often taken for granted.

A 'floor-drobe' flies back into the wardrobe and a serving of spaghetti assembles itself in a bowl in this impressive-looking new spot for the New Zealand Lotto by DDB and directed by Dylan Pharazyn from The Sweet Shop.

Ad Nut could go off on the standard rant about how male parents can and do perform household chores and provide tender-loving care for offspring—something brands should help to normalise by featuring it more often in advertising. But as this is a TVC specifically for mother's day, Ad Nut supposes it gets a pass. Want to wager that the father's day promotion won't revolve around cooking, cleaning and nurturing, though?

Speaking of wagering, please don't give your mum a lotto ticket, which is overwhelmingly likely to be worthless or worth very little.

Also, can children buy lotto tickets?
