It takes a commercial like this to offend just me? I guess I haven't been buying 'top of the line' when I shop here...Cry

Damn, I was hoping for "Jungle Boogie". Now I'm all disappointed and such. Nuts!
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

She's gonna need all the toilet paper she can get her hands on!
 
On a more positive note, at least the commercial didn't feature any of several other songs with a "Get Down" theme.
 
The HUGE woman (not "plus size") bothers me.  I just don't want to watch FAT COWS.
Maybe I'm a fat-hater.  But its just gross.
 
And "plus size"?
Like what, the plus size woman ate the minus size woman?
If we're going to use math terms, I suggest "exponential".

Here's the latest Ross Spring Dress Event ad featuring this year's token fatty pretending to be accepted by the skinny snobs who are pretending to be her friends...



Sad watching these companies kowtow to the whims of the public.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I just love seeing these heavy hitters gettin' their groove on.  I don't hate on overweight or obese or even morbidly obese people, it is just this big inclusion into the mainstream of "what women should look like" because you know, that's where society gets its cues.  TV and print ads.  Pandering to the masses, as usual.

On a fashion note, when are these ripped/distressed jeans going away?  The older you are, the more ridiculous you look.  I was in a store yesterday and was breezing past the children's section, and they had the ripped jeans displayed for the tiny tots!  Ugh.

Be honest, it took you a few to come up with that pun, right?  LOL

If including overweight and less than beautiful people in commercials, TV shows and movies, really means so much to the people who create them, they should've started doing it on their own decades ago without having to be browbeaten by do-gooders into doing it just to give the false impression that they give a sh*t.

It's the phoniness that's so irritating.

And BTW, where is all the inclusion for fat MEN?

Don't fat MEN get to be represented too?

I don't see a lot of clothing ads with token fat guys waddling around in them.

We've gone from the high-maintenance must-be-skinny and beautiful to be relevant message to anything goes and it's just done in the PC vein.

I'd like to see a plus size MAN gettin' his groove on too!  LOL
