We need no further proof than this top 10 list of male-bashing ads. Why, I can't even bring myself to post any of the examples because the portrayals of men in these ads is so offensive, so unjust, that I've been scarred for life. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I exposed any of my readers to such carnage. How dare they portray men as oafs, as buffoons, as the butts of jokes? You'll even notice that most of those men being mocked are WHITE! Why, I remember back in the day when real men like Jackie Gleason and Fred Flintsone made comedy out of showing that men were honorable and intelligent in all situations! And those upstanding, take-charge guys Groucho Marx and Charlie Chaplin! How we laughed at their portrayal of competent, morally correct heroes!
But seriously, fellas. Good work in appropriating the politically correct victimization stance for your own needs. Very manly of you. I'm sure your children will be proud to see you whining like a college freshman about the grave injustice of jokes badly told. "Wow. That Roomba commercial made my daddy cry!" Nice example, guys. Nice example.
Show off rich, innovative advertising. B-to-b marketers are wrestling with their own unique challenges--and proving that they’ve got what it takes to close the deal. Join an impressive group of past winners that includes Adobe, Avon, Cisco, Oakley, Time Warner Cable Media and more.
