A beer fit for an ugly feminist.

12 Mar

Bring it, I say. Budweiser is a shitty beer anyway; this will alienate their core customers (like the Gillette ad did) while not attracting ‘cool wine aunts’ to drink it, so it will be counterproductive.

It’s beautiful when Woke Capitalism undermines and destroys itself through its insanity.

Moar, pleez!

Ad Age explains that Budweiser has reworked old ads to make them more empowering for women:

The campaign, released today in conjunction with International Women’s Day, features full-page color ads in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times that juxtapose sexist Bud print ads from the 1950s and 60s with updated versions portraying women in empowered roles.

But the new ads have a pathos to them.  Where the women in the old ads were serving and loving, with one exception the women in the new ads are ugly feminists with no men in the picture.  Out is a picture of a woman proudly preparing a delicious dinner for her and her husband with the caption:

Big appetite… dinner is almost ready and it sure smells good. Loosen your tie and enjoy your Budweiser.

In is a woman drinking alone on a Friday night eating takeout with…

    This is a bit timely, I just went to a movie theater recently – first time in almost a decade – and I saw that constant adverts ran from the time I sat down until the scheduled movie time. Very annoying.

    What they displayed was nothing but empowered woman crap. The air force had a bunch of old crones in formation with their arms crossed in the power stance, the National Guard had a bunch of minority women folk coordinating, and engaged in rescue efforts. None of if seemed natural, all of it was silliness. At one point I had to chuckle and throw my hand up toward the screen with an audible “harummph”.

    I was like, no wonder our country is screwed. Fortunately the movie wasn’t too bad, the writing seemed to be at least at high school level; sort of, and appeared to examine the idea of “bread and circuses”. Though the lead was a woman, she at least admitted she needed a man in her life and was willing to sacrifice for him. I hear that kind of crap drives feminist nuts, so I approve.

    It was called Alita, Battle Angel.

      Ugh.

      I saw the ad for that movie, but it didn’t tickle my fancy. Maybe I should reconsider…

        If may offer some other points in favor of the movie:

        1. The main villain (Yes, it’s a white male. Typical i know) has literal eyes everywhere (Google reference, FB reference, etc.).

        2. Its full of cyborgs whose control ware is a physical brain and spine only; yet still they are assigned a body type equal to their actual physical body/voice type before their cybernetic enhancement, and no one complained. Suggesting that “gender choice” is BS and that we are who we are on a genetic level. I think Chateau did a recent post arguing this very point.

        3. The main character at one point is given the ability to chose her body type and she develops the body type proper to her biological reality before she was enhanced. Choosing to accept her natural body type.

        4. Finally the story is sent within a very “diverse” society and the society is so dysfunctional that everyone deplores it and yearns to get away. This is illustrated by a game in a gladiatorial type arena where the ultimate goal is to win place in the advanced floating city in the sky.

        Thanks RL; I may consider checking it out soon. Sounds a lot better than I might have feared it would be.

        RL: Saw Alita: Battle Angel last night, and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for the recommendation, bro. 😃

    It’s always white women they use in these advertisements, don’t they? Because having a husband and children is demeaning, but dining alone with your dog on Friday night is empowering. The campaign to further reduce European birth rates is going full speed, not to speak of promoting alcoholism and bugman lifestyle. Though, if your usual weekend company is your dog, you’ll probably need something stronger than a beer.

      I find the woman alone just looks fricking pathetic; don’t know how this will sell pisswater to Millennial women. I hope it doesn’t AND it costs them male customers, and they go under. That would be great…

        A video ad featuring the weeping, soused spinster dining and drinking alone in her studio-apt kitchen, her cat or ankle-biter dog licking the alchotears off of her face as she drunkenly knocks the empty [insert pisswater American beer brand name or paint-peeling plonky wine brand name here] bottles off the counter and onto the floor, along with the takeout food trash, would make for a cultural landmark for the early 21st Century.

        Someone needs to do that as a parody of the Bud ads. 🙂

    Somebody (maybe me; I’ve got some time on my hands right now) needs to come up with a list of other shitty products that we can encourage ugly, crazy feminist women to pitch to other ugly, crazy feminist women. The other two major American distributors of the chemical-laden urine that passes for beer (those would be Miller and Coors, just for you non-North American readers’ info) would make a great start.

    Given the sheer awfulness of all Anheuser Busch beer brands, to include Budweiser, my biggest gripe with the linked Budweiser ad is over how they directed it. It didn’t feature women consuming Bud/Bud Lite in the manner in which American women most visibly consume (what passes among them for) beer: in staggering quantities (“staggering” for AWs being approximately one six-pack each). It should have featured a coven of drunk, angry, loud forty-something SIWs, some of the passed out in their own vomit, amid an ocean of empty Bud cans and bottles. Walk into any bar or pass by any house party in America on a weekend night and this is what you’ll most likely see.

      Well, ads can’t be too honest, you know; they do want to sell ideals / lifestyles along with the products / services. 😉
