An angry and only occasionally observant man wrote NBC an angry letter thinking the media company had altered its peacock logo to include rainbow colors:
Your changing your station logo with the colors of gays is a disgrace. Just stay out of it… Your integrity is ruined… ABC KATV is my choice in the future for all Little Rock station viewing… Shame on you!
By the way, the NBC peacock logo has looked like this since 1986.
There's no shortage of sexism related to mermaids.
In a lot of folk lore, mermaids are blamed for bad storms and doomed voyages. Or they're said to lure men out to sea to be drowned.
In advertising, they're mostly ornamental. At least in these ads, the mermaids support the messaging.
The last ad in the series is my least favorite. The mermaid on the table is asking you to eat her. (Get it? Get it? Get it?) It's such a weak idea, I'm having a difficult time working up some feminist rage.
