The terribly offensive Droid ad!

This new ad for the Droid has been offending some people... can you tell why?

I don't think any of the Droid ads are very good (in fact, most ads in general are not very good), but I don't understand what's offensive about this. Actually, the metaphors make sense to me.

(Although I do find the fruit abuse to be terribly offensive. Because of this, I'm only going to eat meat. I can't believe the things people will do to poor fruit these days.)


  • "Is it a girl? No, it's a strong masculine (insert pictures of men) man-type thing.
    Let's kill fruit.
    Once again, is it female (girls being the sign of pamperedness for some sexist reason)? No, it's a fast and unbreakable male symbol.
    (P.S. here male means robots)"

  • Unfortunately, Google's Blogger is ending the ability to update via FTP, so this blog is going to die. If and when I find stuff, I'll be posting it at my main blog, The New Blather. I guess I should do a farewell post for this blog...
