To be really annoyed by that ad for Olay Whipped?

Evening all, and good wishes.

I know that companies advertising skin care want to show smooth skinned lovelies, but this ad really takes the biscuit!

NO ONE over the age of about 14 can be possessed of skin that line free. I'm not talking about wrinkles, just the ordinary facial expression lines that everyone has.

The advertisement is misleading, and an insult to the intelligence. angry

I don't find it at all "saucy" Maw!

I love the fact it makes a virtue of buying lots of extra 'air' whipped into a dab of cream. Mind you there are far worse adverts....I wince every time I see the female tennis player advertising sanitary towels. Its not her or the product its just the fact we have to be shown a very revealing shot of her semi clad bottom....why? The script has her saying she can be both soft and strong....all well and good but why the naked flesh?
