message 1: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart Has anyone seen the "Welcome to the Ankle Show" commercial for Ankle Jeans and "Flirty Flats"? Well, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1uoQE...

I may be overreacting to this commercial, but when I first saw it, I was like, "Oh, okay, so this is meant to be ironic, right? 'cause there's nothing sexual about ankles, so they're riffing on that? Ah, look 'sexy things about a foot below your knees' I guess that's supposed to be funny? I don't get it." And then I get to the end of commercial where they say something about "Flirty Flats" (they might not even say anything, they might just flash the word up on the screen). That's when I said aloud to my TV screen, "What the hell?"

Must every little thing be sexualized? I'm having a hard time enough fitting into these damn skinny jeans without rubbing a hole in the inner thigh, and now my shoes are called "flirty"? I know they're just trying to sell something, but give me a fucking break.

It's just like that damn Special K commercial with the woman in the red dress. Yes, I eat Special K because I think it's gonna give me a suitable skin tone for red lipstick and it's gonna carve me a body shape to fit a fun, yet sultry red dress and red pumps at breakfast time. No! I eat Special K 'cause I like the taste, dammit.

Hmph.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I bet there are some ankle fetishists out there.

(I'm not one of them, just to be clear.)

I like Special K, too, for the taste, and not because of how I look in red dresses.

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments I believe the Village People should reassemble and record a song with the title, “Fuck You, Old Navy.”

message 8: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I enjoy a well-turned calf and ankle, but aren't those the type of pants that are likely not going to be flattering on anyone who isn't a model? I like my legs but if I wore those I'd end up looking like I shrunk my jeans in the wash.


message 9: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments Stephanie I'll bet they'll be perfect on you as normal pants!! SCORE!


message 10: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart Oh, and if I see one more facebook status about a girl losing weight for "beach season," I'm gonna go nuts.

smetchie | 4034 comments I don't look at facebook.

message 12: by Brittomart (last edited Mar 01, 2011 10:41AM) (new)

Brittomart I'm starting to go on facebook less and less, but most girls' posts are really starting to edge my nerves. They're either about:

a) how they don't need a man
b) how they love their boyfriend
c) niggas ain't shit
d) I'm losing weight so I can fit into a bikini
e) I'm wedding dress shopping and I'm 19!
f) my baby daddy ain't worth shit
g) I hate my haircut
h) class sucks/fuck this test/I can't study
i) fuck you other bitches, you only don't like me 'cause I'm pretty

And it's like ::eyeroll::


message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I think we have very different facebook friends. Mine are either
a)political
b)babies
c)gigs and music
d)horses
e)the strange guy I should really block who insists on wishing every celebrity ever - live or deceased - a happy birthday.
f)the vegan fact guy
g)The people who don't get that they could probably get fired for half the things they say about their places of work



I'm ok with all of those except e and f, really.

Joe (attometer) I agree about Old Navy and Facebook.

I also agree with Larry.

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments All my facebook friends are strippers, or as I refer to them now, The Goddesses, so harmony reigns.


message 16: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart You know Ken, sometimes I just can't figure you out. And that's okay, I think.

Really? I think I’m pretty easy to figure out. I just say whatever ridiculous shit pops into my head at a given moment with little inhibition and an obvious absence of thought.

Ouch. I do hate my haircut. My stupid bangs are too short and now stick straight up in the f-ing air.

But are you winning?


message 20: by Ken (new)

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments I’m winning, with the proviso that an ATM always be nearby.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I love ignoring fashion trends. Ha ha! You want me to wear WHAT? Hee! I'm not gonna!

My FB friends post about food, weather, and politics, and occasionally amusing library stuff.

I loved this, that my coselector/librarian friend Kim posted:
Organizing the Bookcase

I've had to watch it several times. :)

I see what you mean. Yes, that may seem like a split personality of sorts. Could be a Gemini thing (And I’m sticking to my original designation according to Astrology Classic).

i loved that.


message 26: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart I think my facebook friends need some self-esteem.

But me telling someone else to get some self-esteem? Talk about the pot and the kettle!


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Yay, Janine! I love the little dragon statue scooting around on the side table. :)
You'll like it, Bun. And Sally will like the music.

So then Facebook is where you get all of your ideas for posts here?


message 29: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart No, Facebook is where I get all of my "How to Torture Clark Today" ideas.


message 30: by Aynge (new)

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments I thought that commercial was cute. The ads I hate are the American Apparel ads, which look like they were created by a pedophile.

Phil | 11628 comments Special-K has a taste?


message 32: by Phoenix (new)

Phoenix (phoenixapb) | 1619 comments Yes, cardboard and wheat...at least it says there's wheat in it, sometimes I swear I can taste it. Could be the power of suggestion though.

I'm so glad I'm not on Facebook, and maybe Old Navy is harkening back to Victorian days, when a glimpse of ankle sent a man into a weak-kneed tizzy.

Phil, regular plain old special K tastes like cardboard, but the other kinds of special K, like Vanilla Almond, Chocolate Delight, Honey Nut, etc. are AMAZING. I don't like the ones with berries.

Jammies Jackie, love the video!

Harmony being your current favorite stripper from The Goddesses?

That's what I thought when I saw the commercial... I thought it was kind of a clever nod. Not so much sexualizing the ankle as resexualizing it (which I'm in favor of... my ankles are not the worst part of my body).

Not to brag (Okay, I'm bragging) but last night she reigned four times.

Dude, you don't even know. Afterwords my clothes are all sopping wet and I swear weigh about five pounds. I like to think of it as all the fat turning liquid in the heat and just dripping off/out of me.
