Eat Like a Man

In the Pathetically Politically Correct universe that the advertising business has become, men (and especially white men) have become the punchline for almost every joke in almost every ad, since pressure groups from every other conceivable demographic threaten "Boycott!" at any instance of their precious group being mocked or caricaturized. Radical Marxism's Long March Through the Institutions has been wildly successful.

Newton's Third Law being what it is, blowback was inevitable. Here is an ad from Burger King that loudly proclaims, "I Am Man, Hear Me Roar."

Epilogue: the ad only ran once, [UPDATE: apparently it has run muich more than once, see comment #1, here, and various comments a referred link - ed.] then was pulled because of complaints from feminist groups because it exhibits "gender discrimination."

David Ogilvy is spinning in his grave.

If this ad has run only once, why have I seen it on TV at least three different times? Still, it's a stupid commercial, but then, most are.
