Klondike Sells Ice Cream, Sexist Gender Stereotypes

“What color shall we paint the foyer?” is a boring conversation, no doubt. But does Klondike really have to portray listening to one’s wife talk for five whole seconds as a trial for a man? I get it: the game is on, he doesn’t care about the color, he’s trying to be polite. He deserves an ice cream! I guess portraying adult men as overgrown toddlers with no attention span pushes products?

After the jump, another Klondike commercial in which men — gasp! — are affectionate towards one another: Keep reading »

Debate This: Advertising For Love On Facebook

Matt Simpson of Tempe, Arizona is willing to go the distance to find the woman of his dreams online. Because he finds dating sites to be overcrowded and shallow cesspools where women get bombarded, he decided to take a more original approach to increase his odds of finding love. At a cost of $0.75 a click, Matt started his own Facebook ad campaign in which he describes himself as an “active, aware 30-something seeking a balanced woman like you.” He set his campaign to target women whose profiles indicate an interest in yoga, meditation, and New Age books.

Starlets and divas have been getting touchy-feely with each other for years. But lately, we’ve been noticing a whole lot of famous men at events showing physical affection for their guy friends, in the form of cheek kisses, tight hugs, and, in some cases, full-on lip locks. Take, for example, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, who headed to a Lakers game last night. When the Kiss Cam landed on them, they gladly obliged.

What’s Your Most Dreaded Item To Shop For?

Yesterday, my friend Katelyn and I were walking around downtown Portland when I spotted a pair of ballet flats sitting on a sidewalk sale table. They were black patent leather with blue sequin details and, best of all, they had been marked down to 10 bucks. I scanned the stacks of boxes for a size 7, found one, slipped them on, loved them, and bought them. The time that elapsed between me squealing, “Look at those cute shoes over there!” to me owning those cute shoes over there was approximately 30 seconds. As I skipped out of the store with the shoebox tucked under my arm, I looked over at Katelyn who was shaking her head in disbelief… Keep reading »

Mother’s Day Gift Guide For Lucille Bluth-Types

Some of us were lucky enough to grow up with a mom like Donna Reed or Carole Brady, a mom who was always on standby with a PBJ sandwich, a Band-Aid or some motherly words of wisdoms.

The rest of us … well, our moms our more like Lucille Bluth from “Arrested Development.” A hard-drinking and narcissistic mama like Lucille is always on-hand with a strong martini and a muscle relaxant, usually taken in tandem.

Moms like Lucille may be the reason you — and the Bluth clan — are in therapy three days a week. But dammit, she’s a mother, too, and that means you need to get her something for Mother’s Day. Because if you don’t, you know you’ll be hearing about it.
