There is the infamous Paris Hilton/ Carl's Jr. hamburger commercial that has since been banned. If you haven't seen it (hell no, I'm not linking a YouTube video here) it is basically bad porn in which Paris washes a car in some sort of fetish gear bikini and at the end she scarfs down a burger bigger than she is.
Arby's is really going overboard with their sexy food campaign. There is one in which a man, who we see lying in bed, has talked his girlfriend (or wife if it makes you feel better) into dressing up as an Arby's employee for his birthday, complete with tray of food. When she walks in with the bad porn music kicking in he springs a red cartoon Arby's "hat-on" over his head- complete with "boing" sound just in case you didn't get the implication.
Their latest includes a woman licking some kind of sauce from herself. It's really sleazy.
The latest offender I've seen is from Quizno's, in which the sandwich oven (who has inexplicably become some sort of horny HAL 9000) says "Put it in me, Scott" and "Say it sexy." Hey, at least it's not a scantily clad women this time.
So, after these observations you may conclude that:
- I watch too much television. Yes, as in my view any is too much. It gives me a headache to be around it anymore. But I actually only intentionally view one show- Lost, which I haven't even seen in weeks. I heard most of these commercials from the next room when Target-Demographic-White-Male-Fast-Food-Consumer, oops, I mean Jeremy was watching his wrestling (man-soaps).
- I'm looking for perverse messages because I am an angry feminist who likes to meddle and doesn't want men to have any fun- and hot chicks eating hamburgers is fun, dammit! Well, true as the statement may be- the feminist part anyway, I really don't care. Just an observation. I wonder what would happen though if the talky-box people started making commercials like these aimed towards women. That would be interesting.
- I over-analyze things. Maybe. Oh well.
