Teleflora reminds men they are stereotypes, not people with feelings

Date: February 6, 2011 | Posted By:
Oh, Faith Hill, why would you lent your likeness to a commercial that reminds men (again) that they only like “nice racks”? And what if he DID express what’s really in his heart?

This is just the teaser for now, but let’s put it this way: Telling someone he’s acting like a complaining (Jewish, male) comic (Richard Lewis) but then slamming the female one (Roseanne Barr) with a log is sorta… misogynistic?

Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to witness what happens when an ad campaign goes from controversial (yet debatably tasteful) exhibitionism to straight-up, soft-core pornography. A word to the wise: do not view this video at work, around small children, or in the presence of anyone with an ounce of respect for women Continue reading
