Sure, I could say that ads also make men look stupid, but why take my word for it when you can see it for yourself?
Chrysler is having a contest in which you, a member of the North American buying public, can appear in an ad with "The Hemi Guy".
For those unfamiliar with this character, he appears in Dodge car commercials and about shits his pants whenever he sees a Dodge car or truck with a "Hemi" engine, whatever the fuck that is.
I hereby declare The Hemi Guy to be a negative male image. Imagine young impressionable boys thinking this is what they should aspire to be. What if women see this commercial and think all men are more interested in cars than sex or personal hygiene? What if male teenagers start wearing their hair unkempt and filthy, and wear sleeveless shirts when they don't have the physique for it? Damn, some of them already do that. It may be too late.
Also, Happy Birthday, Pants!!! No, not the garment; the blogger. My blog friend Melliferous Pants is having a birthday. If you haven't already, stop by her site and wish her birthday tidings. Oh, just do it...she has chronic back pain, you selfish bastard. Her link is posted to your left.
