Alright, I'm not exactly an expert on sexism, but even I know this is taking it too far.


How does this even make an appearance on TV?

I'm not offended. Keep your damn Dr. Pepper - I'll drink all the beer.

It's actually the exact opposite Dark Knight. What they are doing is creating a spoof of the very thing your talking about, it's actually a poke at men who drink low calorie drinks.

Its basically just saying, "Us guys can't drink Tab cola, we'll never live it down, but hey, we have to start thinking about being healthy so its time to make drinking low-cal cool"

Good idea, pretty funny ad too.

It's sexist in the sense that it equates masculinity, and low-cal drinks with explosions, dirt, vroom-vroom nutsacks etc.. but distances itself from any offensive implications by doing the whole thing tongue-in-cheek. It's fun so it can't be sexist. It's the classic preemptive defense. You say it's sexist and everyone tells you relax.

I think Mick Jagger put it quite well in Satisfaction some 25 years ago. We're just that much farther along in our collective mindfuck. I love that Adbusters started the whole OWS shit, and I can only hope something comes of it, because being a consumer is a lose/lose proposition, unless you have evolved enough to be able to get some kind of nutritious content put of high fructose corn syrup.
