Fruit of the Loom Reminds Us that We’re Flawless.
Questions to Consider:
- Who are the women in this ad?
- What is the message the commercial conveys?
- How would you feel if this commercial came on after a Victoria’s Secret commercial? (How about before?)
- What emotion does the advertiser want you to feel?
What We Think:
This ad is really funny, but with a purpose — I giggled at the faux beat poetry and mock spoken-word rhythm. But then it turns out the message is really quite lovely. Here are the lyrics:
For all the places I want to see
These legs are a vehicle
What more could I ask them to be?
Beauty magazines offer their tricks
What are they trying to fix?
I can’t imagine how your embrace
Would be any warmer on a 20-inch waist.
(Don’t ya know you’re flawless.)
