The Federer ad didn't bother me at all. A little juvenile, perhaps, but nothing I found offensive. I am more bothered by ads like the one below that portray men (almost always white) as some incompetent fuck-up badly in need of the woman and/or minority savior figure to swoop in tell them how it is. The "dumbass white male getting bailed out by woman and/or minority authority figure" is a common script in advertising these days. It's just so ridiculous and a big turnoff to me. Why can't you just advertise your product without throwing the last people on earth that it's okay to throw under the bus (white males) under the bus? It tells men and boys that it's okay, even normal, to be weak, clueless, and dependent on female/minority power figures and corporate products for help making it through the day.


Here's another one where the dumbass white guy is put in charge of making dinner much to the dismay of his children who, of course, view him as a incapable schmuck. But oh wait... Dad was smart enough to call Pizza Hut to assemble a meal for his family since he certainly would have never been able to manage doing that himself. Notice the almost cartoon-like sense of pride the man has over having achieved something absurdly simple like picking up a phone and ordering pizza. That's another common thing you'll see in marketing: white guy acting really proud of himself for accomplishing nothing spectacular whatsoever.


Once you start to look for advertising that denigrates men, you'll see it everywhere.

If things like this are socially okay, then so should be discrimination against women, and them making less money than we do for the same job.
No. Sorry, but this is dumb. Equality doesn't mean making everything sucky for everyone. The problem here is not gender disparity, it's the whiny bitches who would get up in arms about this same ad, except about Anna Kournikova.

Spot on, Blonde seems extra whiny in this thread.

There's life and then there is Cubs baseball, it's a chore to seperate the two.

I hate this commercial so much. It's just a pair of fucking jeans for Christ's sake.

God that fucking is annoying. It sounds like the internal monologue of a fucking crazy person.

Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing.

I took a marketing class once. They told us a commercial doesn't need to make sense or be smart. It only needs to be memorable.


The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.
