Badvertising

It’s been a busy week for bad ads.

Here’s a “men wear the pants” ad from Dockers:

Here’s 2 posts relating to the Docker’s ad:

Bitch

Echidne of the Snakes

Step away from the salad and get your hands dirty? Is that really the message Dockers wants to send men. Um, salad bars will be way more helpful than slamming back some beers, smoking he-man Marlboro reds and eating wings at Hooters anyday! Men suffer from heart attacks, suicide, shorter life spans and violence — all due in some form or another from masculinity roles! Is that what Dockers wants for men? (I’m afraid to know what it wants for women.)

And here’s another bad ad from Burger King:

Burger King

And…PETA is looking for an African American or mixed race actor for there next video, exploiting women:

craigslist

Here’s their video from last year, in which a woman takes off her clothes – for what? – to protest animal cruelity, of course! There doesn’t have to be a link with female nudity, does there?

State of the Union Undress

What I want to know is: Where is the People for the Ethical Treatment of WOMEN?!

    First they use sexism and now they use racism. I guess we’ll be seeing a homophobic version too.

    “Once upon a time, white men wore the pants, and wore them well. Black men rarely had to worry about measuring up and little old black men were happy on the plantation. White men took charge because that’s what they did. But somewhere along the way, the world decided it no longer needed white men. Urban by urban, wigger by silly pride-free wigger, white men were stripped of their khakis and left stranded on the road between boyhood and racial equality. But today, there are questions our race-free society has no answers for. The world sits idly by as cities crumble, children misbehave and those little old black men are left longing for the plantation. For the first time since bad guys, we need heroes. We need grown-ups. We need white men to pull up their pants, turn off the rap and hip-hop, and untie the world from the tracks of complacency. It’s time to get your hands dirty. It’s time to answer the call of white male supremacy. It’s time to wear the pants.”
