So it's Friday and no matter where you are in the world, we're guessing there's something in your house that could be cleaned. Personally our home is spotless (pppff we wish), but if your house could use some touching up or your week needs a giggle, we present to you a GE ad from 1957. Ahhh, the good old days!

Although we remember taking part in household chores (as well as skipping out on them when possible) we never... ever... laid on the floor to look across it for dust. Do you think kids helped out more at home a generation or two ago? Were there fewer distractions or was there more dedication?

Either way, we think the ad above is as precious as it is funny and serves as a great reminder of what life could be... Mom sitting back, picking up her feet as the kids tidied around her with great care. We wanted to offer up this fun snippet of the past before your weekend, where hopefully you're just as spoiled!
