Banned Mercedes Commercial

leave a comment »

This commercial for Mercedes is trying to say that “Beauty is nothing without brains” by using the typical stereotype of a dumb blonde. I personally do not find it offensive but it is unfair that Mercedes chose a stereotype to help them advertise the concept of having a nice looking car that is also dependable and high functioning.
