Gendered TV Advertisements

Sorry for the really boring title. This isn't about London, but the guy talking has a British accent!

Now, I want you to write a 2-3 page response paper on the social construction of gender roles in this clip that.....just kidding :) I saw on another blog I read, the Grand Narrative, and wanted to share it with others. Hopefully you found it funny too...and are also thinking about what exactly is funny about it and what it says about gender roles. Put your sociological imaginations to work! :)

  1. but... isn't it a joke? there's a laugh track on it... no? i would say that would skew the analysis... i use 3 dots a lot... but even so, it has the typical "god-like" male disembodied voice... which obviously knows more about women than women themselves...
