Watch 2 ads. What’s wrong with them?
Post your comment ‘leave a reply’
Match each video to the correct explanation below.
1- Carl’s JR. burger
2- Volkwagon’s Polo.
A- While the fast-food company isn’t exactly known for socially conscious advertisements, its X-Men commercial sinks to a new low. The sexist message is clear: Ladies, burgers are only for manly men. Guys, unless you’re a manly man with massive jaw and muscles to chew on a juicy burger, you’re nothing.
B- One of the most racist commercials in recent history is particularly appalling. It features an Arab terrorist in its ad campaign for a new car. The terrorist attempts to be a suicide bomber at the scene of a busy restaurant, but his plan is thwarted because the Polo, despite being small, is just too strong for his bomb.
I’m shocked about the Carl Jr commercial because this ad was sexist they mean burgers are only for men and not for women. In the second commercial, there is a mix a between Arabs and terrorists. It’s a racist commercial 1- A 2- B by Mathilde.
