The Week on AdFreak: July 8-15, 2011 Sexist ads, Kenny Powers, tiny bellies and huge scams: the week's top posts

It was quite the sexist week on AdFreak. "Got milk?" turned off the ladies with a bizarre new campaign portraying PMS-ing women as total bitches. We followed that up with a collection of 10 sexist ads through the years. (I know, I know. What's wrong with being sexy?) Also this week, Kenny Powers kicked some ass as the next CEO of K-Swiss; ladies stripped down for Zappos; and an innocent-looking set of banner ads were accused of a $1 million crime. See those stories and more by clicking on the links below.
