  • Virtue-signaling Super Bowl commercials: The good, the bad, and the ugly

    As the nation’s highest-rated television program, the Super Bowl offers advertisers the opportunity to define (or re-define) themselves for the public in a way that no other venue can provide. A memorable commercial will be discussed among friends at Super Bowl parties today, and at the office water cooler tomorrow. That’s why companies are willing to pay $5 million for half a minute. Many companies take the opportunity to associate themselves with themes and values cherished by current and potential customers. The label “virtue-signaling” is usually used by me in a negative fashion when companies and people embrace the shibboleths...

    It’s Thursday and we’re still talking about the Gillette ad “The Best a Man Can Be.” If you’ve been hiding under a rock, patiently waiting for the eventual return of Louder with Crowder (which is TONIGHT), go check out: Gillette’s #TheBestAManCanBe Ad Assumes Toxic Masculinity is a Real Thing and Top 10 Reactions to Gillette’s Anti-Masculinity Advertisement. The tone of the ad was incredibly patronizing, assuming most men are basically sexist pigs. That’s the key problem. So it’s not surprising that we’ve learned the ladies responsible for the ad are woke feminists who hate Trump: The director behind Gillette’s controversial...
  • Gillette's Sexist Sermonizing to Men and Women

    So who is the mastermind at Gillette who came up with the idea that the best way to sell men's razors is to insult the customers with condescending liberal propaganda about "toxic masculinity"? Is pandering to the perpetually angry feminists in the media the way to grab positive "news" coverage? Is online buzz the goal? If so, it must also be Gillette's goal to have its customers rush over to the Schick display. A century ago, Gillette ran ads in newspapers touting American soldiers of World War I using their product: the "clean fighters" of the Allied forces "fighting for...

    How utterly pathetic. This Muslim-pandering, virtue-signaling, cringe-inducing ad from Nestle is so blatantly over the top in its sickening political correctness and Islamophilia that it will make you heave: "Fatima" celebrates how American she is with a Nestle Crunch bar.

    Townhall.com ^ | November 7, 2018 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    During the last weekend before the 2018 midterms, the media decided an ad by President Trump was "racist" and therefore refused to air it. CNN, NBC, Facebook and even Fox News took that position. The "star" of this commercial is Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican citizen who has repeatedly entered America illegally and who shot two California police deputies dead in 2014. In January, Fox News aired footage of Bracamontes boasting in court: "I don't (expletive) regret that (expletive). The only thing that I (expletive) regret is that I (expletive) killed two. I wish I (expletive) killed more of those...

  • Do white people dominate the outdoors?' MEC apologizes for using only white models

    10/25/2018 4:58:08 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 87 replies
    In a surprising apology, Mountain Equipment Co-op, the Canadian outdoor apparel giant, admitted to helping advance the “vastly incorrect notion” that the outdoors is for white people only, criticizing decades worth of its own advertisements and catalogues for depending almost exclusively on white models to sell wares. “Outside is for everyone,” MEC CEO David Labistour said in an open letter Monday. “It’s time we acted like it.” The letter — titled “Do white people dominate the outdoors?” — includes a collage of old MEC ads: white people hiking and biking and rock climbing and cross-country skiing; white people in khaki...

    A political action committee said Friday that it won’t pull a widely condemned radio ad that suggests white Democrats will lynch African-Americans if they win in midterm elections in Arkansas next month. Vernon Robinson with Black Americans for the President’s Agenda said Friday that the group won’t cancel the radio ad running in the Little Rock area in support of Republican U.S. Rep. French Hill. He said the group also won’t pull a similar ad he says is airing in Missouri. The ads in both states are scheduled to run through Friday, Robinson said. “There’s no plan to change the...

    Everywhere the opposition has ads poured out about how heartless the evil, mean Republicans are. They want to take healthcare away from poor, poor people with preexisting illnesses. All they care about are big corporate insurance companies. They are dirty, and bought and payed for by them. If you are a good and decent person with any kind of heart at all you will vote for the good and decent Democrat, who cares about people and doesn't want to kill them. Besides, really frightening, is the possibility that you or someone you care about could be, or eventually become one...

    Liberal protesters – egged on by Democratic politicians – are openly embracing a more confrontational and aggressive approach, banging on the doors of the Supreme Court, confronting lawmakers outside their offices and chasing GOP officials out of restaurants. And Republicans are quickly seizing on that spectacle to hammer a new midterm message, decrying the “mob” behavior and warning that Democrats would bring that mentality into the majority should they prevail in November's election.

    The “Gosnell” film producers hit another obstacle this week when the social media giant Facebook refused to run their ads. “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” will be in theaters beginning Oct. 12. Under-reported from the start, the film follows the true story of Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who murdered newborn babies and committed numerous other crimes inside his “house of horrors” abortion facility. It stars Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark”) and is directed by Nick Searcy (“The Shape of Water,” “Justified”). Producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have faced roadblocks from the start of their project,...

    Sweden's Advertising Ombudsman (RO) has criticized a Stockholm company for sexism after it used a popular meme alongside a recruitment advert. The image, known by online communities as 'Distracted Boyfriend Meme', is based on a stock photo of a man turning away from his appalled to girlfriend to look at an attractive woman. Swedish internet service provider Bahnhof used the image alongside a jobs advert; in their take on the meme, the boyfriend was turning away from "your current workplace" to stare at Bahnhof. Sweden's advertising watchdog RO has now ruled that the use of the meme was "gender-discriminatory", both...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A U.S. judge on Tuesday struck down a nearly century-old California law that banned handgun ads at gun shops, saying the state failed to show it would prevent suicides or crime. The 1923 law banned any handgun ads at gun shops that were visible from outside the store. State officials argued the ads would spur impulsive people to buy a handgun, and impulsive people are more prone to suicide and crime. The law, however, did not restrict ads for other firearms. Judge Troy Nunley in Sacramento noted in his ruling that gun shops could display a...

    When companies get in trouble over their advertisements, it usually happens quickly. In the case of Sherwin-Williams Co., it took more than a century. The paint maker is fighting a California court ruling that ordered it and two other companies to collectively pay hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for promoting lead paint over several decades, when they allegedly knew or should have known it was hazardous. The litigation has highlighted Sherwin-Williams ads dating back to 1904. Sherwin-Williams SHW, +0.50% and its co-defendants in July petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case, arguing that they were...
