A good, old fashioned bit of tit and arse

What with Big Brother being back on telly, providing us with 24/7 arse shots, bikini-cam and silicone implants in digital quality, and that guy on last night's Logies thanking his McLeod's Daughters female costars for having "the best boobs in the business", I think it's about time us Aussie females celebrated the return of good old fashioned tits and arse - SEXISM, THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

For TOO LONG we've suffered under a namby-pamby contemporary sexist regime, one in which perfectly saucy comments about women's arses and norks and insightful commentary on their ability to wash their husband's shirts had to be put through the pinko-lefty wringer and polished off with a veneer of "political correctness" before they could be unleashed on the public.

Thank goodness there are SOME COMPANIES out there trying to SET THINGS STRAIGHT - taking a leaf straight out of Singo's Big Book of Sexy Advertising and creating adverts the way they should be made - WITH MORE FEMALE OBJECTIFICATION TITS AND ARSE.

Like Nando's.


What better way to sell a hot chicken family meal than with a stripper flashing her arse in a businessman's face for $20? Well? How would YOU sell chicken?

Before I go on, I think we should all take a moment right now to be thankful it's that OTHER fast food chicken joint that uses the phrase "finger lickin' good".

Now, back to the ad. It's genius, isn't it? Like the lady in question, I'm a busy woman. I don't have TIME for cravings. But nothing makes me crave a chicken dinner more than watching a half naked woman twirl around a pole in a sleazy strip club while men try to stick money in her G-string. Actually, there's only ONE thing that makes me crave a chicken dinner more than that, and that's watching that SAME woman get off that pole, wipe herself down and go home and eat a chicken dinner with her kids.

Congratulations, Nando's, for putting tits and arse back where they should be - right next to the breast and thigh.

NB: It seems the phenomenon is spreading to other industries, if the taxi I drove home behind today is any indication.


WHAT repairs? How do you break THAT?

  2. Nice blog Petstarr. Just in case you or your readers don't think there is enough female booty on our TV screens, tune in to Channel 10's Video Hits one saturday morning -- there is PLENTY of female objectification going on there.

    I always think when I watch TV like this that it is no wonder some non-Western people (men and women) are confused as to what exactly 'feminism' and 'women's rights' means in the West. Must be rather confusing.

  3. Anonymous - Thanks for those links, I always like to supplement my viewing diet of tits and arse with a bit of pecs and abs. Nice one.

    Kathy - There's nothing better than waking up on Sunday morning with your head pounding from one too many margaritas to a visual banquet of women better looking than you are writhing around to bad music, is there? Actually, there's only one thing better than that. A CHICKEN DINNER FROM PORNO'S, MMM.

  4. Now that is one of the sexiest things I have seen for a long time----what----its a Petstar back blogging with a little venom for a cause other than some lame television critique
    Ok, we all know sex sells----there will never be anything better than a great arse and a nice set of tits to sell anthing-----but a great critique by such a talent will always be sexier
    So what has been holding you back Ms P

  5. Clyde - Are you saying my ANTM recaps are LAME? If you want venom you're on the right track to getting some RIGHT UPSIDE THE HEAD with that remark! Anyway, I haven't been holding back, I've just mellowed in my old age. More to the point I've been going out more and thus spend less time in front of the TV getting annoyed by ads. But that Metropolitan Plumbing one still gives me the shits.

    Thought about it for while and no, no, there is no better way.

    Also works for lamb, beef and cough medicine.

    And er how bout a freakin' link (you can tell I've been to blogwhoring assertiveness training).

  7. A link, a link, of course! I have been meaning to link to Whale Sushi for a long time now and my slackness has gotten the better of me. A thousand apologies.

    Other products I think strippers could be used to promote on TV - Bratz dolls, Vietnamese coffee and shoes with clear plastic heels (if Chris Rock has anything to say about it).

  8. Bwahahaha.. its great, simply great.. I have no sound on my work computer (luckily) but it looked like she was stripping to earn a bit of cash so she could take her family out to a restaurant and have a massive chicken dinner. She should tell her lazy bloke to get off HIS arse so she doesn't have to waggle her's at buisnessmen to put food on the table.

    but you lose a bit of perspective without any sound

  9. Damian - Sound or no sound, I think you got the gist of the ad. I never really thought about her being FORCED to strip to afford dinner for her family - that puts a whole 'Les Miserables' subtext under the ad that I hadn't even considered before. How depressing. But then again, if you have to work as a stripper in order to afford dinner at your local NANDO'S, you really need to reassess your priorities in life. Or upgrade to a better paying strip club, so you can afford to eat at Barnacle Bill.

  10. That is one of the funniest ads Ive seen yet. And the lady is quiet a stunner too.

  11. I take it you didn't get it that the ad was meant to be a complete joke and mockery of all the ads that use sex to sell....

  12. Scalene - What am I, stupid? Of course I know it's a joke. It's just not a very good one. I understand the whole concept of satire, but the simple fact is: If you're trying to sell me chicken, don't show me minge.

    I saw the post on your blog about the Nandos Stripper Mum commerical.

    I hate that Nandos Ad so much and find it so offensive I've created a "Boycott Nandos Website":
