I wouldn't really say it's offensive either. It just gives me an uncomfortable feeling. But that's how i usually feel about commercials that try to portray a "manly-man"

I have a pretty twisted sense of humor and find "funny" in just about everything, but that was... Not offensive, just kind of stupid, and it made me want to go out and buy Brut just about as much as Carl's Jr. ads featuring people taking gigantic mouthfulls of burger, making piggish slurping noises and slopping condiments all over themselves makes me want to eat there.

Some of the Axe commercials are funny as hell though.

There is a definite pushing of boundaries in commercials I think..which while that is always the case (nature of the beast that is advertising) I am NOT ok with all the objectification that has been rampant, especially with all the real issues that go hand in hand with that.

Objectifying commercials are the reason I boycott Hardees.

I agree- I didn't find it funny nor offensive, just stupid.

I like the Old Spice commericials with the "manly man"- I think those are funny!

The message is fairly clear. Brut contains rufies.
