Dr. Pepper 10 is NOT FOR WOMEN. [Deep breath. Long sigh.]
Is this one of those things where a company does something totally rude and offensive, leaves it out there until people complain about it, and then says, “Surprise, it was all a joke. We were just kidding, so now you’re being whiny bitches”?
Seriously, are we being punk’d?
Because, otherwise, this makes no sense. Dr. Pepper seems to be going out of their way to make themselves look like chauvinist pigs. In a world where women are already presumed by a majority to have inherent “sissy” qualities that predispose them to sentimentality and vanity, do we need more reinforcement that “women don’t enjoy action movies” or that “women are obsessed with being thin”?
It’s not that I don’t get it… but it seems like they’re going the long way around just to make it to the punchline. I still like Dr. Pepper and, for the record, LOVE action movies… but I think their delivery is a little off.
Maybe they should practice in front of a mirror or something. I’m not sure how to help them at this point.
Men are one way and women are completely different. This is the case at all times.
Dude, that is fucking hilarious.
