Re: But a gaggle of women...

Those of you hitting thumbs down... why, exactly?

I find the advert contemptible; it presents an unrealistic male body image, portrays these women as fixated on appearance, is overtly sexual in nature and if the sexes of the participants had been the other way around would have never even been aired. Not that perfume adverts ever seem to make any sense; they sell you the image of course; Johnny Depp with a shovel in the sweltering desert heat next to a road and a dead animal isn't a fragrance I'd think would be too popular, nor is essence of wet tiger, or eau du battleship.

I posted a link as some people don't seem to have seen it.

But a gaggle of women...

viewing a buff male undressing to take a bath from behind a one-way mirror is clearly neither voyeuristic nor offensive.

Pff!

@Twilight: You can't cite the Daily Fail as an authoritative source. Unless you're trolling or being ironic or otherwise messing around. Seriously; don't. Provably wrong... it's the best laugh I've had on this thread.

Speaking as...

someone who competes for contracts to repair damaged vehicles and provide finance for additional warranties and can comment on sex-bias in the industry...

That would mean I would be a fender bender mender, gender lender extender looking to tender.
