Funny clips mocking women's products and advertising!
« on: April 04, 2013, 10:36:27 AM »
Infomania has a whole slew of clips that make fun of woman's products in advertising.  I've spent the last 20 minutes watching them!

Beauty aids: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEAaHpFGKac

Birth control: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oDyCx3A6Ao

Sarah Haskins also does such a good job making fun of the ads, and of the gender-role stereotypes.

It's been forever since I've watched any of these, love them! Back when I'd first watched them (3, 4 years ago?) I really loved the 'Feeding your F*cking Family' clip. I'd never seen the hair one until now, great stuff! Especially since I've been about a month into 'no shampoo', and it's been going well.

Ha ha!  Reminds me of this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85HT4Om6JT4
Women, sort yourselves out, for god's sake.

But I like how this women gets detailed about it.  Like, I never noticed before how well-dressed women are when they're cleaning in commercials.

Finally remembered to watch these! The birth control was great.

Had a great time watching these. Just love the Canadian sense of humour. More Northern Exposure please and the Mounty one.   And Sarah? She's so, so, so , well , normal. Is she really on TV?

I go back to my early childhood - "That lady is smiling because she's an _actress"/"Remember, nobody smiles doing housework but those ladies you see on TV."
