It's what Madison Avenue types like to call "bang for your demographic buck!"
Well, it occurred to me that there are three mythical women whom I need some of your thoughtful feedback on. I know these are actresses, reading lines, in commercials which were storyboarded, written, and re-written a million times by some faceless agency-30-somethings in a New York high rise.
So let me be clear: I understand these women are not real.
Now... going along with the fantasy... what do you fellow guys think about the following ladies, and which one has the most "championship attitude" as a commercial wife?
I imagine the impossibly wholesome wife with the naughty streak in this Samsung commercial is going to win on both looks and "championship attitude." After all, here's a very lovely lady, with two impish and well behaved sweet daughters... yet... BOOM... there's a BAD GIRL underneath!
However I also have a liking to the Burger King woman who just MUST get a nasty-ass Whopper at two in the morning. Sure, she's less physically attractive, disheveled and... hello.. KNOCKED UP... she so relishes that burger it makes you think that's not the only thing she sometimes just "has to have!"
Then there is this sporty looking middle-aged woman in the DirecTV "Out of Space" commercial series. She seems the most "up tight" of these ladies, but has an undeniable classic beauty to her. She looks even better dressed up ready to hit the town in a later version.
So there you go. Thoughts? Discussion? I mean, this is the kind of crucially important stuff the internet was absolutely invented for.
