Does advertising get more sexist than this?

It's easy to think that the blatant sexism in Mad Men is exaggeration, but this Cracked list of eight woman-hating ads proves it really isn't too far off the mark. We've covered a bunch of these before, including the Goodyear ad, whose obvious misogyny is almost tame compared to those old Folgers and National Airlines ads. Sheesh. The rest of the ads here, including the Yoplait one above, heavily reinforce traditional gender roles, which just comes off as insulting now. Actually, since we're in V-Day time now, now might not be the best time to post this. God knows Eve Ensler doesn't need any more ammunition.
