I laughed at the oreo ad as well.

I think they used Vegas showgirls because they wanted a team with women. You are correct that is was a sad and not very interesting campaign, but I don't think it was meant to be offensive. If it had been it might of been funny.

ah thankee! i wasn't going feeble (with this one). i thought: "wait, is there some other bus-filled-with-feather-boas-in-the-desert homage that i've missed - cuz those ain't drag queens!" would've been deemed rather creative but for that little glaring substitution.

The Arab-types don't appear at all in the second half of the ad. No idea why.

Thanks for coming, David!

Our next event will be "Women in Creativity," February 27th. We're trying to present the realistic side of women's roles in the creative services industry, aspiring to go beyond the cliché topics that have been talked out to get to the real challenges women handle in their careers. We'll have the ticket/info site up by late 2/13, after which this link should function.

If you can't make that we hope to see you at any of our other events or at least next year's Chalk Talk! You can stay abreast of our events at

Losing at beer pong to a pregnant woman drinking by proxy was all this post really needed to be about.

This commercial was grating. Turning drag queens into women was appalling. Making the Arab guy an idiot was appalling. The worst thing to me is that I think the premise isn't bad at all, it's just the execution was so miserable.

The Coke at was mildly annoying. It bothered me that the showgirls were obviously a nod to Priscilla, sanitized for a straight audience. Really, Coke? Fucking cowards.
