You know what would have been funnier.  When they were in bed, if she wanted to have sex but he instead wanted to watch porn on his tablet.

We white guys are pretty stupid, I'll be the first to admit. But when are advertisers going to stop with the "stupid white guy" trope? I don't want to be reminded of how stupid I am in every commercial I watch.

Never, studies have shown that women make most of the purchasing decisions in the household.  They love the "stupid white guy" trope

You actually post on internet forums about commercials?
 
2013-03-15 01:58:35 PM  
So the message is that the future of an entire industry that once had thousands of uses is down to primarily shiat wipe?

Forgive me if I pass on this wonderful time to invest in the paper industry.

Only on the internet. I don't actually own a television. Notice I didn't call it TV because TV is a nickname and nicknames are for friends and television is no friend of mine.

I'm actually kind of sick of it myself. I start to suspect the product/service they're selling is somehow subpar if they can't just make it sound good without making someone sound dumb.

Robo Beat: La marche de l'empereur.


That whole ad campaign for Canal was full of stellar ones, just the fact I know what that ad despite it being for a TV channel in a country I'll never live in is testament to that.

This one is my favourite from that series:

I didn't think he was in a "stupid white guy" role. He was playing a douchebag. They can come in all colors and genders.

Standard douchebag gets their comeuppance story arc.

The one in the hospital is probably the best, I think it was one of the first too so you really didn't know what he was about to do to the TV.
