Bikini sluts to sell MEAT (the NZ dream)
I remember watching the BK adverts, you know the ones that have 3 women, each profiled as brilliant, or successful or wealthy – but in each scene they were in bikinis. I wondered what message that was saying to every young girl watching it, that no matter how smart you are, how successful, or how wealthy – to every dribbling meat loving red blooded male you were always ever going to be a slut in a bikini. And what was this exercise in objectifying women to mere slithers of bikini all for? Selling junk food hamburger meat to men whose sexual appetites was manifesting in mouthwatering simultaneous hunger as the advert slow-mo’s over a huge steaming Whopper sold by 3 women who looked like they have never kept a meal down long enough to digest. Human meat to sell animal meat – it’s post-modern mass media lunacy at it’s most cancerous and delightful.
Bikini girls banned from TV
Fast-food chain Burger King has withdrawn two television advertisements deemed sexually exploitative through their "cheesy" use of bikini-clad women. The Advertising Standards Complaints Board, in decisions issued yesterday, found both commercials breached an industry code of practice forbidding the use of sex appeal simply to draw attention to a product.
