I cannot believe that anywhere, along the way, someone didn't say "you know, these ads might not be such a great idea."

And really, they're not even funny.

Félix (habitseven) Not funny at all.

Helena | 1058 comments Nope, not particularly funny. I’m sure there would have been a better way to market milk as an aid to alleviate PMS. Those are just annoying.

Stina (stinalee) | 750 comments I'm looking forward to the ads that trumpet the magical powers milk has in combating male pattern baldness and small or floppy dicks.

Phil | 11395 comments I used to use floppy dicks in my old IBM PC/XT.


Oh, wait. Typo.


Nevermind.

Félix (habitseven) The old floppy d.

Brittomart Women have women parts that make them go all crazy in the head once a month! That's it! Let's go sell us some milk, boys!

Really? Please.

Suefly | 620 comments Sexist. I find it demeaning to not only women but to men. It simlifies PMS into a joke that can be solved by a few sips of milk. Sexist, silly, stupid.

It isn't being marketed to alleviate PMS, really. It's being marketed to help the poor, beleaguered husbands/boyfriends/sons of the crazy, head-spinning, pea-soup-barfing harpies that make them miserable once a month.

I've never understood "Got Milk" advertising in the first place. Who, aside from vegans and the lactose intolerant, doesn't buy milk on a fairly regular basis?

Annie (agrunwell) I don't buy milk regularly. I just don't like it.

Some people don't, which I perfectly understand. I just don't think advertising milk with celebrity images or ads like these will prompt more people to buy it.

Cynthia | 6836 comments Lots of children don't drink enough milk. Or else they drink only chocolate milk--good for athletes but lots of sugar.


message 15: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl | 22176 comments I only buy milk if I'm buying cereal, and I don't eat much cereal.


message 16: by Karen K. (new)

Karen K. Miller (KarenKM) | 140 comments I can't drink milk or lactaid without getting gas pains that feel like labor pains. However, no problem eating ice cream.

Phil | 11395 comments A friend of mine recommended almond "milk." I haven't tried it yet, but she loves it. No lactose, no cholesterol.

Lila | 146 comments I think we have been fooled into thinking we need milk...
