I have a new favorite commercial. Well, I shouldn't say "new." It's been out a few months. It's the commercial for Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing. You've seen it, right? There's a smoking hot guy (side note... does he sort of look like he could be related to Luke Bryan to you? He does to me. Anyway...), he's at an outdoor grill, he asks "how zesty do you want it?"... and then this is where my mind wanders and I'm no longer paying attention to the commercial... well, until he pours more dressing in the pan and it burns his shirt off.
From a woman's perspective, this could quite possibly be the GREATEST TV COMMERCIAL OF ALL TIME!!! What were they selling again? Oh yeah... "anything" dressing. I've got to get back on point here...
So anyway, now there is a print ad which is equally as spectacular as the TV commercial. And there is an equally UNspectacular advocacy group that is trying to get the ad pulled because they are offended.
I mean really... why is there ALWAYS somebody trying to spoil the fun of others? You don't like it? Don't buy the dressing. Heck, don't buy the magazine the ad is printed in. I guess I don't understand the "I don't like this, therefore nobody can see this EVER" mentality. I don't like fish or seafood. You don't see me out starting an advocacy group so that nobody can eat fish or seafood EVER AGAIN simply because I think it's disgusting. That's just silly. And this advocacy group trying to get this ad pulled is silly too. That's my opinion, anyway.
Judge for yourself. This is the ad that they are trying to get pulled. Is it REALLY that offensive? Or is it a thing of true beauty that just happens to be selling a bottle of dressing? I think the latter.
And if you haven't seen the TV commercial, here you go. You're welcome.

We're coming up on lunchtime. Wonder if this guy is available to cook me some lunch...
