Making the woman look good at the expense of the man in an ad started decades ago when market research showed that woman make most of the buying decisions in the family.

And...I still don't like it or think it is OK. I happen to like men. It doesn't sell anything to me. Just sayin...

It's funny how different people view things. I dislike TP commercials that make it look like you use TP for cusioning falls, or making roadways for kids' matchbox cars, etc. Does a bear poop in the woods? At least they're acknowledging what the purpose of the product is! To each his own!

I'm not sure it qualifies as a commercial, but I just saw one I like. The "e pluribis unim" -- "I am an American" one. So many USA citizens have no idea what the motto of this country is. I learned it in high school civics class. Out of many, One.

Oh! Here's a good one!
Love the sound effects. It sounds like someone is biting down on a mouthful of raw macaroni

I hate any and all Toyota commercials. They have a sale on constantly. If you miss the present one, there will be another one right after it. I mute them immediately.
