Leave my Cheerios ALONE! A bowl of cereal with some milk never hurt anyone. HOWEVER Nivea has launched its ’09 campaign for My Silhouette! Which though appropriately faced by a classic poster child for shallow delusions, is thus far leading the pack for self-hatred, pressure inducing, media crimes against women for Spring.
Above is an older version of the pipe-dream in a squeeze bottle ad. This season’s is even worse and currently running in heavy rotation on major networks. The latest Nivea ad shows a stick sliding into her size 0 jeans thanks to their slim, slimming ‘My Skinny Jeans‘ cream. You have to be genetically predisposed à la Little Pony Parker or Kyra Sedgwick for a figure like that – a lil’ lotion ain’t gonna reduce our chunk.
Boycott this eating disorder inducing pitch of lies.
Still leading the pack for most annoying local commercial is Mark’s Casa Chevrolet. Though there’s been some improvement since then, someone really needs to tell Mrs. Casa that it’s okay to use her ‘inside voice’ outside when she’s mic-ed.
