The campaign talent includes Anthony Anderson, Sean Astin, Gilbert Gottfried, Jon LovitzDolph Lundgren and Charles Shaughnessy. In the 6-part video series, each celebrity shares their love for a good old-fashioned Dad Joke as they call on the public to speak up about their love for Dad Jokes too! The delivery is unique to each talent as they share their funny and lighthearted take in the classic PSA format

“Bazooka Comics have entertained generations with their classic Dad Joke humor,” says Alyson McManusBrand Manager for Bazooka. “This campaign provides us with a playful and fun way to put Dad Jokes front and center while celebrating our comics and Father’s Day.”
