"Mow the Lawn"

This is one of the most insane television commercials ever.

I could almost imagine it airing in the US, but hell no. UK only.

A little ditty for down under.
A catchy tune touting the new Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women Bikini, with a razor on one end and a waterproof bikini trimmer on the other, but certain racial stereotypes/imagery might muff... er, ruffle some feathers.
Creativity magazine, where i had a pretty cool interview last month, wrote about this and it was picked up by Boing Boing where i found it.

  1. Wait a second...masturbation is one thing, but shaving yourself because you're feeling down or bored? That doesn't make any sense. That commercial, regardless of it's racial overtones, transforms a routine into an activity. It's not about necessity or beautification, but just doing it. Huh.
