You know that argument that surfaces every time a woman decides to turn on her magnetism by getting the attention of viewers with some erotic styling. Whenever that happens the excitement is two-sided; on one hand the feminists rise in revolt and the others just get drenched under the showering sex appeal.
Here’s an example: Kate Upton shot for an advertisement for the niche car manufacturing company Mercedes-Benz, for the advertisement, the stylist did make a lot of compromises making her look as if she was in the final stages of her journey from bedroom to bathtub.
Up on YouTube, the video is called “Kate Upton Washes the All-New Mercedes-Benz CLA…” Find that amusing? Actually, not too many people found it amusing; here is what a spokeswoman from the Parents Television Council told the Daily Mail: “This ad (reinforces) for millions of wives, daughters and sisters across the country that you use your sex appeal to get what you want. If anything, this ad proves that we’ve regressed rather than progressed over the last several years.”
The YouTube comments that followed the release of the video would lose their essence if they were to be censored for this blog and the ones on Mercedes Facebook page had more variety. There were the ones who highlighted their disdain for the brand and there were the ones who found the hate mails completely absurd; lastly, there were also those who lolled the insanity of the argument. All said and done, if we could look at the YouTube likes vs. dislikes as a mini-survey to reach a conclusion; the results are in favour of the video.
However, the best way to keep both sides happy would be the suggestion made by one Facebook user; to bring about equality, let there be a part two in which some hunk replaces Ms. Upton.
