Today’s Lady News: Offensive PMS Milk Ads Pulled

  • The California Milk Processor Board killed their offensive PMS milk ads that depicted PMS-ing women as irrational and difficult and showed their browbeaten men handing over cartons of milk to quell their symptoms. The ads read things like: “I’m sorry I listened to what you said and not what you mean” and “We can both blame myself” and directed customers to a site called EverythingIDoIsWrong.org. Now that URL redirects to a site called GotDiscussion.org which runs an apology for the offending ads. The ad agency responsible for the PMS ads told The New York Times, “It certainly wasn’t our intention to offend people.” That is such BS. Of course they were trying to offend people! Why can’t advertisers just come out and say “We were trying to offend people and get attention because that’s how advertising works?” [AdWeek]

The Daily Ovulation: Irreverant Child Covers Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”

 

There’s nothing more endearing than children singing songs they don’t understand. Best Week Ever rounded up videos of kids singing highly inappropriate tunes. My favorite was young Ava belting out her rendition of “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse. Let’s hope Ava doesn’t follow in Amy’s footsteps, but for now, she’s rad. I hope if I ever have a child, he or she is this irreverent. Other favorites included Penelope’s version of “Bad Romance” and two brothers covering NIN’s “Head Like a Hole” during bath time.

Do Not Want: The Return Of “Beavis And Butthead” And “120 Minutes”

Now in most ways, I am thrilled to see the ’90s come back. I loved that, last year, both The Pixies and Pavement were on tour. I’m excited about rewatching both “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Hey Dude.” I watch the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” on SoapNet most afternoons, and get secretly excited when I see girls in babydoll dresses and/or Doc Martens on the street. But, unfortunately, MTV is trying to bring back back the things I don’t miss about the decade. Prime example: “Beavis and Butthead.” I thought this show was funny for approximately two episodes, and then even though I found it uber-grating, I had to endure another year of every guy at school doing “Cornholio” impressions in the hallway. Still yesterday, the show’s creator Matt Judge appeared at Comic-Con to talk about the reboot of the show, which will begin airing on MTV in October. Judging from the clip above that premiered yesterday, it’s just as obnoxious as I remember.

Slightly less offensive—MTV2 is bringing back “120 Minutes” starting July 30. Keep reading »
