I don't think beer commercials are going after the intelligent, serious types, they're pretty mindless.

I'm annoyed with these "beer ads aren't to be looked at for model behaviour" comments. It's patronising and irrelevant. Se7en is right; that's so not the issue.

A lot of what you learn comes to you under the radar and subliminally. Eg. Why do most people see transvestites as being clownish? Cos that's how they're portrayed in the media.

Most of the information you take in is from your sense of sight. And since we're so bombarded with images daily, it's harder to process what we see, so we just accept. Doesn't mean we're lazy, we're just human and... busy.

I see what you're getting at, but as a woman in a committed relationship of 2.5 years and couting, I must say I LOATHE "chatting" on the phone, even w/ my bf. If I knew he was having a "guys" night, I'd never call and interrupt unless there was something important to talk about right then. Likewise, I don't expect him to call me and check on me all the time b/c it's his "manly" duty and I need protection or whatever. So this commercial means nothing to me, but I guess you should probably ignore what I say b/c according to "society", my bf and I play opposite roles in our relationship: he's the sensitive one that's always calling and I'm the hard ass the bosses him around

We actually studied that ad in one of my CAS classes. I was rather annoyed being that giving that commercial attention, ANY kind of attention, is exactly what they want. I thought, the only thing more rediculous than that commercial is the fact that I'm paying tuition money to sit here and discuss it.

I understand how you feel, I just pay the idiotic commercials no mind, the target audience is the type of guy/gal that would find the crap funny?

I dunno, I'm pretty good at avoiding the "subliminal" messages . I don't automatically accept something to be true because that's how it's shown on TV. For instance, I'm aware that not all transvestites are clownish. And I don't even know any transvestites personally. If someone's gonna stereotype a group of people based on the behavior of some on TV, then they're a moron, plain and simple, who can't seem to think for themselves.

I also agree with LivLuv in the sense that I hate talking on the phone for a long period of time. I've just never been one for doing that-I'm much more in favor of face-to-face chats with a guy I like .

That's a broad generalization, imo.
it brings to mind the lyrics "The less you know the more you'll believe today..
I accept much less these days that I ever have..
