Have Ads Gone Completely Mad?!


Last week, Bacardi went and did this.

And now Burger King has gone a created an ad so overtly misogynistic that we're almost at a loss for words.

Here's the ad copy if you cannot read the fine print above:

"Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER. Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick and Hearty Steak Sauce."

No wonder I stopped eating fast food . . .

Seriously, could they make the woman look a bit more like a blow-up doll??

I've seen the ad and I wasn't really "shocked" by it. But that may be because I'm accustomed to the sandwich shops in Chicago that have signs and (and sell shirts) with tag lines like; "The best 12 inches you ever put in your mouth."

No offense, but can someone who writes for (as your Blogger profile states) be shocked by or complain about misogyny? I would think you'd have seen it all by now.

No worries...people who eat that mess will be too fat and bloated to get it up anyway.
