But Sex Sells!*

This ad gets the distinction of "most sexist ad I've seen this week" ...

... and this one get the nod for "most racist."

Both ads via Feministing.

* The title of this post is courtesy of scores of students - mostly in the advertising sequence of the journalism major - who've argued that of course sex sells, so it's rational to make ads like this, and that's all you need to know about ads of this sort.

Both ads also get my vote for most stupid.

Sweet Suffering Christ! Is this for real? You sure these aren't parodies?

Once again I'm grateful to whichever parent is responsible that my blood pressure is normally lower than a lizard's. Sheesh!
