The only movie I saw in theaters last year was “Brave”. Last “grown up” movie I saw in theaters was For Your Consideration in 2006. Yet every year I watch the Oscars, and have REALLY STRONG FEELINGS about it.
This year, biggest feelings in this house was about the Diet Coke commercial. Rrrrrrraaaawwwwwrrrrrr.
For the young’uns that follow us, these are the commercials Diet Coke used to show when I was a teenager:
YES YES YES.
WHY WAS IT NOT TOO HOT FOR PANTS.
So last night THIS masterpiece flashes across my television screen mid-Oscar, my jaw drops open and I don’t know what happened for the next couple of minutes because I must of zoned out, but when I came to Matt was PISSED.
Every day, I see hundreds of women objectified to sell everything from beer to crackers. And one company- ONE- allows me to objectify a man from the comfort of my couch? I say: BRING IT. I will drink diet soda by the palletful if this continues, regardless if it’s turining into cyanide or other mysterious substances in my digestive tract and slowly dissolving me from within!
But Matt still has a problem with it. He says its degrading and disrespectful, that it reeks of desperation when a company is willing to stoop so low as to need to trot out a half naked man to sell its product, and that I’m as bad as any sexist man out there when I ogle a Diet Coke guy.
Whatever- I think he’s just jealous. Enjoy your Monday, everyone!
