New Levis Commercial
Have you guys seen the new Levis commercial? You know, the one where the Pit-type dog is chasing the young woman down the street, over a car, up a tree, then attacks her and pulls her jeans off and takes them back to the guy? The one that egregiously endorses the stereotype of the Big Bad Attacking Pit Dog? The one that's completely and utterly irresponsible and panders to the mentalities that either create aggressive dogs or create breed specific legislation?
Can you tell I'm a little PO'd by the whole thing?
Anyway, here are some contact addresses and names for the Levi Strauss Co. at their headquarters in San Francisco:
Levi Strauss & Co.
1155 Battery Street
San Francisco, CA 94111
President and Chief Executive Officer
Senior Vice President and General Counsel

I really like their little marketing gimmick where they want you to submit a story about your favorite Levis. If they start having to sift through piles of complaints about the add it will start to become a real chore.
I also like the idea of clogging up their 800 number (and running up their phone bill) with complaints about the advertisement.
So, let's get after them - just like the dog in their irresponsible ad!
Crosspost as you please!
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. ~Buddha
Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.
There are few things more nauseating than pure obedience. ~ Kvothe
