While all eyes are focused on Brady vs. Manning or whether Madonna’s Half Time performance will
suck be memorable, I’m thinking about last year’s derogatory Pepsi ad that reinforced the castrating and loud stereotype of black women amongst other less than savory ads.
I don’t think it’s a matter of if there will be an offensive ad, but a matter of who is denigrated. IF NECESSARY WE MAY NEED TO RESPOND so, it’s better to be prepared than taken aback. This is where you come into play.
By the way, I’m looking forward to Madonna’s performance. One of the quarterbacks seems a wee bit more humble. I’ll let you guess – he’s the one not married to Giselle haha! Either way these are highly compensated athletes doing what they love, so they’re already winners regardless.
There’s no way I can catch every commercial (you can go to ad websites as well), so if you’re watching can you keep an eye out? We need to review what message about women companies are sending and if they benefit or harm us. We can’t complain if we are complicit in supporting them. Millions of people watch this game and we have every right to protect our image. Let’s be proactive. If you have any faves or cringe-worthy ads feel free to share in the Comment section. I’m sure many of you will be buzzing!! ***Update*** If you use social networking sites we’re using the hashtag #dontbuyit to keep track of our responses.
