When I heard about Pine Sol's new ad direction, to dress up its African-American spokesperson, Diane Amos (you know, the heavyset black woman with braids), in a couture gown and to be seen coming home to sexy, muscled chocolate man mopping the floor, I had to post it. (See New York Time article: Selling a Household Cleaning Product on Its ... Sex Appeal?)
And then I recalled this article that my daughter saw via David Letterman, I think, or it could have been Jay Leno (She doesn't ever know who she's really watching) that's up at the UK Daily Mail saying men who vacuum and use a microwave have lower sperm counts. I don't which is funnier, the study or the commercial. See Pine Sol commercial from YouTube video below.
All right, you know how we like to pick at Madison Avenue. Who will be the first one to ask this question, "Is Pine Sol saying that in order for a black woman to be sexy she has to have straight hair and ditch the braids?" Maybe I'm the first. Hmm. I'll google it.
