Sorry Lands’ End, I’m Out

Soon after hitting the “Publish” button for this story, I will be shaving off the beard that I have had for almost three years now. Doing so for a variety of reasons, I will be using my Schick razor because I threw out my Gillette razor after their commercials made men look like idiots (quiet, ladies) and incompetent fools.

Last night, I caught a commercial by Lands’ End showing two, bumbling, cry-baby males trying to bring a Christmas tree into a house. They were rescued by a woman, who inside the house, just happened to be wearing a LE parka and she was able to complete the task that they could not. And, as she did so, they followed behind like little puppies, thanking her for helping.

First, there is one way to bring a Christmas Tree through a doorway…the opposite of what the boy-men were attempting.

Second, If I left the door open and that much snow was blowing into our very nice house, my wife would be all over my ass (and rightfully so) for letting that happen.

The wussification of men continues.

Sorry, Lands’  End.  That’s it for me.

Off to Orvis.

    Sorry, Ray for what you had to view. Even I got turned off by it. The feminist theme here can have its overreach at times. No magic jacket with super powers exists anyway. Perhaps,gender-neutral or gender equality ads might be more suitable. Aside from Orvis, you can go to LL Bean,Cabelas or Pro Bass.Here in Canada, in addition, we also have Mark’s Work Wearhouse(now only known as Mark’s).

    Sorry, Ray, I have to disagree with you on “The Best a Man Can Be” commercial – the message is a good one. Now if there was another commercial where they shave like idiots, that’s another story (there is no shaving in the one I mentioned)
    However, Land’s End – what the hell were they thinking? What a stupid-ass commercial. I don’t know a single man who would try to bring in a tree top first. And yeah, they bring in that much snow? They best get out the mops!

      The “best man commercial” by itself isn’t bad, although I do take exception to the generalization that all guys are bad. I know it is a sensitive subject and do not want to minimize the bad things that happen. Gillette has taken it too far on more than one occasion. Thanks for chiming in.

    now if it had been a Three Stooges like skit, then it may have been funny. the two guys would end up bopping each other on the head and pulling each other’s hair out…

    You would think people would realize by now that you don’t build up one group of people by tearing down another group…

    Ray the reality is that Men put the tree up and put the lights on. The Women (my wife) decorate . I’ve got 18 trees around the funeral home this year to prove that.
