Hey guys,
Im going an opinionative collumn for school about the false stereotyping of the male gender.
Basically,
This is an advertisement by WakeBoard Nebraska,

My question to you is this,
Do you think the ad encourages you to buy the product and why?





I only want serrious answers please, no being stupid, think serriously does this ad encourage you/discourage you to buy the product and why?

JUST TO CLARIFY WHAT THE PRODUCT IS,
It is the wakeboard up the top left hand corner.


Thanks for your feedback,

No, It does'nt encourage me to buy it.
I think its stupid and degenerative for them to actually think that girl's in bikinis are going to make guys run to buy their products.

Yes it makes you want to buy the boat. I mean look at that rack.......the one for the wake boards. But no it doesn't make me want the boat. Maybe girls with bag over there heads scares me. So no. But other than the bag thing, it's a stereotype to think all guys want girls in bikinis.

Are they the product? I mean what are they trying to sell?

edit: Oh it's wake boards, my bad. No, I don't wanna buy maybe if they tried harder and showed a half naked chick straddling the wake board I might think differently or maybe if they were soaking wet but that does nothing for me or their wakeboards.

Anyone that says yes is either not attracted to the female gender or they looked all over for the product to observe the details of the half board it shows.

Lol no.

I don't know if your basing your paper on that ad alone or the actual product, but that ad doesn't make me want to do anything. They have the actual item cut off by a shit load, and to be honest, as good as the female body is, I actually prefer to look at the face. I'm a fan of the eyes and smile. If it wasn't for you saying what the item is, and that logo wasn't there, I wouldn't know what the hell I'm looking at. I would think it was one of those pictures with the black borders and it says like

"Women... God invented a paper bag for a reason". Hope this was helpful.

if you hadn't pointed out that the product was wakeboards i would have thought it was the bikinis the girls were wearing, so no I wouldn't have bought the product

technically it's a terrible advertisement because of the way the product is placed, but the advertisement itself has obviously garnered more publicity (controversy is the best publicity) than if the girls weren't wearing the bags, so it's quite effective

honestly it looks like you're trying to sell people as your product though i suppose women in bikini's is a good way to get a male's attention. (is being serious.) however i am confused about the paper. i think plastic would have been amusing. (is not being serious.) regardless this whole add doesn't encourage me to by the wakeboard. first off it barely shows the product. second off the ad is massively confusing. third off i see no real theme that identifies what your trying to sell. just some ideas though...

The product isn't even clearly displayed.

Nobody would buy that.
