...and we love culture, don't we?
I really like this video response a lot. The original commercial is a little ridiculous, but I do understand why they targeted men specifically, even though white, straight men are pretty much the least oppressed people ever.
Both of these are so excellent.I did not see the first one despite watching the super bowl. The concept and writing in both of these is high qual, but for my money, the original ad, despite it's commercial intent, is the more impressive of the 2 only because it is the original incarnation of the idea. The response is brilliant but still a copy of the format. Also, I think it's hard to see the first ad as "ridiculous," except in a very subjective way. From a critical standpoint it's more worthwhile to ask how well the work achieves its intent, before we judge the nature of that intent. As the great Oscar Wilde said, "There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are either well written or badly written. That is all." The same goes for all creative works if you ask me....even commercials.Nice post.
