"I don’t even fucking know," says submitter moretocome. Nor do we.

He is portrayed as a doofus too engrossed in sports to care about the busted car, and he assumes she knows nothing about cars, so he makes up terms.

She gets revenge by pulling the TV cord and calling the cord the “wingnut redirector”.

I don’t really see it, to be honest. I imagine that if it was on my TV endlessly, she would come across as a nagging wife, but it doesn’t really bother me. In contrast to the sausage ad, she does something about it, she doesn’t just take his childish nonsense.

And no, portraying men as childish or immature is not sexist by itself - oh he’s insulted for five minutes, but society still treats him as a grown-ass adult, while she’s a killjoy who is too irresponsible to keep her job, not that she needs it because she is married.

I saw this ad on TV the other day, and just found it on YouTube.

It’s essentially the ‘Male Version’ of the Mother’s Day ad.

Yeah…

…It speaks for itself.

You probably don’t care, but I found that annoying Mom/Daughter phone commercial you were talking about.

Cars are only for men, and you’ll have a horde of bikini-clad women cheering you if you buy one

Propaganda Alert: Randall Terry to Air Aborted Fetus Ads During Super Bowl Sunday
Anti-choice activist Randall Terry thinks your family should be subjected to graphic images of aborted fetuses with their popcorn during the February 5th Super Bowl. 
Referred to as a “longshot presidential candidate” by CNN –yes, this self-proclaimed Democrat has attempted to challenge Obama for the presidency– team Terry has purchased time slots during the biggest sports event of the year. 
Terry reported that he has already dropped cash for spots in 13 markets. According to CNN, commercials will run in five different locations during the game: Ada, Oklahoma; Grand Junction, Colorado; Paducah, Kentucky; and Joplin and Springfield, Missouri. The other eight will run during the pregame. 
In a message to supporters earlier this month, Terry wrote: 
“We will reach TENS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS, and get enormous media coverage as well. And THAT, my friend, is what the babies deserve. And it is exactly what people like “Sophia” and The Abortion Gang who murder unborn babies dread. They FEAR Americans seeing the truth. Let’s be a voice for the babies.”
If his words aren’t troubling enough, there isn’t much the networks can do to put a halt to this type of content. According to Section 315 of the FCC Telecommunications Act, stations are prohibited from altering or censoring political ads within 45 days of a presidential primary or caucus.
Though these commercials will most likely be plastered across our television screens come February, you can still let NBC know that this propaganda campaign is so not cool.

Yes, this is sexist. Ads that are an assault on reproductive rights are inherently sexist. (Especially coming from a cisman!)

Oh, the HEADPHONES won’t fall out!

I found this today. I’m not sure if anyone has sent it in. It was listed on this page: http://www.adweek.com/adfreak/30-freakiest-ads-2011-136965

It’s the second ad on that page. #29.


Stop staring and take her picture.

Apparently these ads are plastered all over my campus. …Really?

It’s that time of year again… (I can’t find the embed and I don’t really want to - promise of nudity, words written on their chests…)

"Cuz you never know." Yeah, getting stuck on a deserted tropical isle happens all the time. And don’t worry ladies - as food provisions dwindle, you’ll definitely lose weight.

Has anyone submmited the “Hopes teaches” ads with Gisele Bundchen here yet? (I’ve tried looking for them but if they’re here I couldn’t find it). They were made for and aired in Brazil, and they’re so terribly offensive they were actually banned. Basically, in three different ads, Gisele “teaches” women how to give bad news to their husbands (her mother’s going to live with them, she maxed out BOTH their credit cards, she crashed HIS car, AGAIN!). In the first example, shown as “wrong”, she’s wearing normal clothes, and in the second (the “right” way), she tells the news wearing lingerie and acting girly and coy. In the end, a voice over says: “You’re Brazilian, use your charm”.

It feels so good when your own countrymen demeans you like that.
