I know you’ll know what I think about this ad without me having to say much at all:
1) Warrant’s Cherry Pie is a yucky song. Catchy? Sure. But I really don’t dig the innuendo and never have.
2) Look, hot woman hitting on some greasy schlub of a guy. We’ve never seen that before. (Incidentally, why is According to Jim still on the air?) If this isn’t male gaze in action, I need a better definition.
3) Not the most harmful thing in the world, it’s just that we’re inundated with SO MANY of these kinds of ads that compiled together it’s a bit more of an issue. Generally speaking.
4) Oh, Arby’s. You are getting as annoying as Burger King, and I didn’t think that was possible.
What do you think of this ad, from a feminist perspective?
