Trimming the topiary, literally.

by Laurie Henzel

Last night this commercial came on and it sort of left me with my jaw hanging open.

It should be a funny, obvious joke ad, like the ones for guys (Axe) where they are clearly making a pun, but it was done in a subtle lady like way, with vaguley sexy, wine bar electronic background music. Bleh, it takes the fun out of the pubes=trimming the hedges joke, guys! While I am all for making fun of girls that are all serious about trimming their pubes into landing strips, (cmon ladies, really) I don’t think this ad succeeded in making the joke work. I am not easily offended, but this rubbed me the wrong way. Besides, I’m sick of being reminded to get that Brazillian or whatever is supposed to be hot. What do you guys think? Am I being to sensitive?
