The most offensive commercial in the world...

...is this one. Well, perhaps I shouldn't speak in absolutes, but this is PRETTY WELL UP THERE. I don't notice these things all the time; unlike some people, I don't notice misogyny absolutely fucking *everywhere*, but this ad really does take the cake. You don't exactly have to be ultra-sensitive to subtext to get it: man makes a dumb mistake; woman emasculates him by pointing it out; he responds by bashing her in the face. Funny shit.

The other Keystone Light ad I have witnessed--which does not appear to be on youtube--is the gay panic one where a guy starts to put the moves on a woman trying to pick up a case of beer only OH NOES! IZ DOOD! Man, even by beer conglomerate standards, Keystone is one seriously, seriously classy company.
