Re: Forgetting the Forgetting Sarah Marshall Ad Campaign
The movie was only okay but I think that original blog post was fairly absurd. "Advertisers have no problem pitting women against women," um, they're fictional characters. Not to mention that every story features a conflict of some sort, be it man v. man, man v. woman, woman v. woman, Spartans v. Xerxes, Paul Blartt v. dignity, etc. So why should one of those be labeled misogynistic? And I can't believe she pulled the "Won't somebody think of the CHILDREN?!?!?!" trick thinking those billboards in any way affected little girls. Seriously? The only effect that would have is if a little girl was actually named Sarah Marshall, otherwise I'm pretty sure little kids would just ignore it.
