|Do you know where the bathroom is?|
I'm pretty sure the next commercial would go something like this:
Picks up roll of toilet paper.
I'm going to use this!
Her family looks at her with detached disdain.
I mean, I'm going to figure out how to use this...then I'm going to USE THIS!
Or it would have had I not stepped in and saved the day. After I called them out for those commercials (as well as a Facebook post where the big brains down at Swiffer Marketing compared a man who actually cleans to a mermaid sighting) they changed their tone and come out with two new, less sexist, commercials.
|This might be good for a larf.|
In these ads, the women are not quite as shocked to have free time, and they choose something a bit more frivolous to fill it with--like taking a Cosmo quiz, or having a squirt gun fight. Most amazingly, one of the ads actually shows a man cleaning (either that, or he is placing objectionable reading material out of reach from his impressionable wife, but let's go with cleaning.)
|Who has two thumbs and is afraid of Virginia Woolf? This guy!|
Women of America, you are welcome.
