On Thursday the Motion Picture Association of America stated that portrayals of smoking would be considered alongside sex and violence in assessing the suitability of movies for young viewers. Films that appear to glamorize smoking will risk a more restrictive rating. Do you think movies that contain smoking deserve a more restrictive rating?
I found this ad posted in a friend’s room. I think the style is clearly an imitation of the old calvin klein ads from the 90′s. While satirizing the heroin chic style, the ad (for a clothing company) is also embracing the style. These types of ads seem to be problematic considering the sexual aspects and body image issues they evoke.
While searching on youtube i came across this commercial. Take a look at it:
This commercial is hilarious. Yes, it is very sexually suggestive but I believe it does a good job at reversing gender roles. In this commercial the woman is in control over the man. He is submissive to her.
On a side note…i do not think this a real beer commercial…does anyone know what this is really advertising
. This commercial is a play of the stereotypical beer commercial. It starts off with the sexualized women, but instead of giving us the message that by drinking their beer we get this amazingly hot girl it tells us that the taste is more important. Although this ad may appear to dismantle the typical role of the sexualized women in advertisement It still gives the message that men are in control while women r not. What do u thinks.
