We live in a sex-saturated society (That's a new thought, right!?). There are sadly too many ads that use sex appeal and sexuality to sell products. Recently there is a Commercial for a liquid plumber product that uses the concept of a porno to sell a gel that unclogs drains. Really, America? You need seduction to sell LIQUID PLUMBER???
Does anyone else see a problem with this ad?
I think it is extremely disappointing that so many find humor in that ad. They think its edgy and funny. Would people be outraged if the gender roles had been reversed? I haven't heard much controversy come up with this commercial, but I would speculate that had it been two women plumbers and a man lusting after them, the ad would have stopped. Am I the only woman, or person, offended by how they exploited those men's sexuality? Am I the only person saddened by the overall acceptance of the women's lust after the grocery store employees/plumbers? Do men feel offended or objectified at all by this ad? They should. No one should be objectified like that. Shame on those who call this a good thing and think its harmless fun! I researched to see what has been said about the ad. Most blogs and articles I read were praising the ad for being so sensual and funny.
I am not going to ask what has this world come to? Because I am not surprised at the ad or at the reaction of people, but it still saddens me and makes me angry at the attitudes of people and the praise of immorality. At the very least, God's people should speak out against this sin and make certain that their lives reflect God's view of sexuality. "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2
