AdoptUsKids/The Ad Council's "Hamster"
Two kids run into a room to tell mom, who's vacuuming, that their hamster is missing. She is oblivious until the vacuum sucks up something unseen and short circuits. Indeed the hamster has been found as the kids look sheepishly at their mother. A voiceover intervenes, "You don't have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. There are thousands of teens in foster care who would love to put up with you."
