There’s a commercial on television now where a bunch of women show their bare bellies, some with diagrams written in marker. I’ve seen the ad a bunch of times, but still don’t really know what it’s advertising. Perhaps if I was a woman, I’d be more inclined to pay attention to the message. Let’s say it’s about the importance of calcium supplements.
I gotta say, though, that I find this ad kinda sexy, in a repressed puritanical mind kinda way. It’s just a bunch of women with their tops pulled up, showing their bellies. But the variety of waists is kinda enthralling.
What I find really interesting, though, is the very last woman. She’s got her top pulled up, and she’s wearing some low slung khaki beige cotton pants. Now, it may just be my imagination, but I swear that there is the faintest hint of pubes protruding from the top of those pants. So barely there that a quick glance would never see them. So barely there that only a diligent visual survey could discover them, and even then, be unsure of what was there.
If it is pubes, I can’t imagine it’s an accident. Is it a case of the advertiser, subtly, so subtly, pushing the envelope?
