Queerty is better as a member
Who has a better sense of humor: The ad execs charged with protecting Gillette’s image, releasing this (official) spoof ad about its razors? Or
Dan Jesperson’s unauthorized Pantene parody with Mantene shampoo?
Hot guy but I lost interest when the woman appeared.
When are these advertisers going to get it? They don’t have to put a woman in every ad for guys products? No one is worried about the studs in their ads are queer.
@christopher di spirito: This ad is for a heterosexual audience. Why would they waste their time having a sexually-ambiguous character market their product? The female approval is always needed at the end for straight male egos.
Sure, the Mantene ad is funny – but I want to get my hands on “The Sound of Silence” Enigma remix!!
@Adam: Good retort Adam. In the end, what matters to companies most is the bottomline. If they felt having a sexually ambiguous male in ad would translate to more sales, then you better believe we’d be seeing more male model types in Beer ads and Grooming ads.
@Jake: Enigma stopped basing their albums around Groegorian chants in the early nineties. Their new stuff is much better.
I feel like this is kind of a rip-off of Hyperbole and a Half, by the lovely Allie Brosh:
Which was then made into an animated video:
I think hers was funnier.
