Are you new to television ads?
Yorkie is for men.
I have no issue at all with that. My role is to apply daddy tax whenever the kids get their hands on any treats.
Is that a CRT TV?
Must try harder John W
Oh yeah. “Try hardrer” . Classic male chauvinism! All about your testosterone driven agenda to belittle the opposite sex…Oh no! I said sex! Try stop rubbing your genitalia for a second and contemplate what scum you really are.
To be fair, it ain’t your fault. You were force feed toy trains and hi-vis jackets from when you were a toddler…sort that uni brow though. Caveman!
This is the sort of comment people have in mind when they talk about the lunatics that frequent comments pages.
Get a fecking life…
That’s not *the* JohnW is it? You know the one who makes everything about fathers’ rights? (Except the odd eurovision song he pens). Surely not…
No, this is pervasive everywhere. Men aren’t considered important. Never mind dads, look at the amount of adds where all men are portrayed as idiots. Before people minimize this imagine it was gender reversed and women were portrayed as idiots or that kinder treats designed by kids and had e be approved by dads before they’re allowed have them.
I’m a man, and I’ll take being portrayed as an idiot on washing powder ads over being portrayed as the second sex in every other artistic, social and political sphere that you could name.
It is part of the same system though. Portray men as idiots in the kitchen and clearly women simply have to do the work because men are so laughably incompetent at it! Haha, look at Jim there, trying to wash his pants, oh my he’s set the house on fire. Size six Sally had better wash his pants for him instead! Then maybe he’ll marry her and buy her a car. (Ever notice women are rarely in car ads and if they aren’t driving the car or have no lines?)
Ah yeah, I know. The patriarchy hurts everybody. I was just being a bit snide.
Don’t tell feminism, but I would take that deal too if it was offered to me.
Yup but hey feminismisms are just out to support the womenz*!!
Oh f*ck right off John W
Somewhere John Waters is quickly sliding down a pole.
You can take that whatever way you want.
What you’re probably wondering more is what this thing here is for. It’s nothing. It’s something I learned over in England.
Oh F***k’s sake!!!!!
Delighted to see people are as fed up with this as I am.
Hang on there now daddy o…
Did you not catch the new ad on the telly box the last couple of nights where the dad is cooking the dinner???? Surely you’ll be thrilled with this…
The only reason that there is a man cooking in that ad is because the product is to make cooking easy enough that even a stupid man can do it.
Eh, ‘invented’ in the passive voice. Clearly the implication is that a smart man, possibly someone’s dad, invented the chocolate bar. Man invents, kid eats, mum approves. All the gender stereotypes are safe and intact. You can all go to bed now.
