Advertising gone wrong

04Apr09

(video from feministing.com)

So this is a real problem. There’s the most obvious for me which is the horrible racist stereotypes of Black women and Asian women buying into fucked up stereotypes of both women and men from the Black and Asian community.

Also, let’s be serious, what women just can’t wait to get to wax/shave/whatever their pubic hair. That shit is bad news bears and no fun, it is not a lovely mid-afternoon activity that I like to pair with a trip to the mall.

    the racial politics of that commercial is so ridiculous! at times i felt like it was more of a madtv sketch than a real commercial
