Check out this Snickers ad (below) that I saw on the Southern Fried Scientist blog posted by David Shiffman (WhySharksMatter). He posted an entertaining article about how sharks are typically stereotyped referring to a past Nicorette commercial about a man so distracted by his craving for a cigarette that he doesn’t realize a shark is chewing on an arm. Funny, to some, but David didn’t really think so at the time and people told him he over reacted, but I don’t blame him really. The Nicorette add perpetuates a stereotype telling people that sharks will eat you any chance they get. The Snickers ad is more cartoonish and in my opinion…funny. I didn’t care for the Nicorette ad much. What do you think about the ads? SPEAK UP!
