What this ad is really saying…

*sigh* it never ends

hellooooo, she\'s not even sleeping on the mattress. *tsk*

helloooo, she’s not even sleeping ON the mattress. *tsk* and it’s also nice how the ad is implying some sort of “exoticism” with a questionably latino/african-american man and his Caucasian, long-haired brunette woman.

You can’t see it but it says things like “Give me: Beer, Food, Sex” and “Stop: Nagging, Moaning, Whining”

Commentary: Honey, it’s going to take a lot more than a piece of plastic with some batteries to control me. Or…wait…maybe not…*scandalous!*

While googling this gadget I did find that there is one for men that is equally offensive. Interestingly this version was not stocked in this particular store. Ahhhhh marketing demographics.

    I can’t tell you how many times a day I get irritated by ads like this. Wade and I are always cracking up when we watch tv because it’s so obvious by the commercials they show, what group is watching the program. For example, the commercials while Gilmore Girls aired were all tampon and laundry detergent commercials.

    Clearly false advertising. I bought that exact mattress in hopes of sleeping with a brunette girl and it showed up with a well built latino man. jeesh.
