We live in a pretty globalized world but that doesn't change the fact how it is screwing us and trying to constantly change our local lifestyles let it be from clothing to eating and to everything that can come to your mind!

Globalism is not just still being debated it is the main issue today!

The current globalism is a culture slayer.. you have many westerners tpday crying day and night about their culture declining and blaming everyone for it while they are the ones causing it!




What and dumb and arrogant way to look at this from that perspective this is a typical dumb white trash hater approach to things!

The nobel price is a western organization if you want to base it on others such as Asians and Africans or even South Americans then only the western dominated continents in the world would win in your arrogant gaming!

This is the equivalent oh having a Chinese dominated Nobel Prize where China focuses more on Asia in their awards and this is exactly what is happening with the Nobel Prize which is a western organization!


i agree, nobel "price" is indeed a biased organization. otherwise this 3alem would have at least be nominated, several times,and twice on sunday lol

    I'm aware of the definition! the question are you?
    And my English is pretty poor compared to yours but still you re having hard time to relate it or even understand the meaning!

    You tell me what does a freaking soda have anything to do with two kissing each others?

    These globalist and sexist advertisements are all over the place and they do have a subconscious effect on societies!

    How are religious Muslims perverted? What are you basing that on? and why the generalizing?
    People can be perverted yes but being religious Muslims do not equal being perverted!
    For example many priests are pedophiles should we say all priests are pedophiles scums or all religious Christians are somehow pedophiles?

    And you don't see the perversionism (yes perversionism with -ism suffix) being propagated and indoctrinated by globalization?

    Again can anyone tell me what a product like a freaking soda have anything to with two kissing each others what is the relation here?

    It is enough that people and specially kids are being indoctrinated by all kind of BS through the TV!
    Through your repetitive intelligent question, the image is a lot clearer now to why sharia is so attractive to you.
    I always questioned how can someone sane be attracted to such ideologies.

    Look at the ad again :) it says clearly win 1 of 10 SUMMER HOLIDAYS..daretlak?
    Do you see the relation now between the couple on the beach and drinking cola ? or not yet?
    do you want me to explain how it works ? :)))))

    if a community don't want this in their city then it must be simply respected!
    there are thousands of ways to show a holiday destinations without having couples about to kiss each others and we all know where this is all heading! Next time it would be actually kissing and some fart like you would jump out and say oh they are just kissing.. you are such a backward blabla then the next step they would try to have an ad about homosexuals kissing each others instead and when someone speaks against it you would jump out again and call him/her with same BS as u re doing right now!

    ads should be regulated and they must be about the actual product!

    and define normal!

    No I don't see the relation and trust me I have seen way worse sexist advertisement in Tripoli than this one but hey if they chose to start with these ones that is fine with me as long they start with it!

    We need less of that shit... not promoting it!

    And honestly I don't expect you to understand!

    you are not using the word sexist properly. sexist means someone who discriminates between sexes in professional environments and holds a condescending view of the other gender.

    the only correct context for using the word sexist in its appropriate meaning is if you are upset these weren't two males or two females about to kiss.

    you are welcome :p

    Hunkvertising: The Objectification of Men in Advertising
    Some wish they’d just keep their assets covered
    By David Gianatasio | October 7, 2013



    Call it hunkvertising.

    The objectification of men in advertising (as with women) is not new. Consider icons like the Marlboro Man and Old Spice’s sexy pitchman Isaiah Mustafa. And yet, a disproportionate number of buff, often-shirtless studs are lately popping up in ads for everything from salad dressing to air freshener—in other words, consumer products not normally associated with sexual imagery.

    As ever, sex sells—even the hirsute sex, apparently.

    Many ad experts and social critics see the whole thing as a harmless turning of the tables following decades of bikini-clad babes in beer commercials. Double entendres abound when dissecting the trend, the overriding feeling being that it can’t be taken all that seriously because, after all, we are just talking about guys here. “We’re all in on the gender-reversal joke,” explains Lisa Wade, associate professor of sociology at
    Occidental College. “It’s funny to us to think of women being lustful.”



    Adds Steve O’Connell, ecd and partner at Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners: “Objectifying men doesn’t really upset anybody. You really can’t offend the white male.” O’Connell’s agency helped pioneer the manvertising trend last year with print ads for Renuzit featuring small product shots alongside a parade of beefcake. (“Now that is gorgeous. And the man is not so bad either,” reads the copy in one ad.) O’Connell says, “It’s tongue-in-cheek and calls itself out. The hot guy clearly had no business being there. Because it’s guys, you get the extra safety net of it not being too offensive.”

    Renuzit refreshed the campaign last month with a whole new batch of dudes. The new push from Pereira & O’Dell, themed “Choose Them All,” introduces eight handsome new “Scent Gents” who personify the brand’s aroma palette and promise “a good-looking man in every room.” Each a master of the come-hither stare. The Gents also star in a branded reality show featuring Joan Rivers called Romancing the Joan, presented by the site SheKnows TV.

    And, they’re a hit. “Our digital banner CTRs are 25 percent above CPG averages and are driving users to our Facebook page where our likes have increased significantly,” reports Jeanne Howard, home care brand manager at Renuzit’s corporate parent, Dial Corp., a unit of Henkel AG.

    But while largely seen as good-natured fun, others argue that this trend bears as much scrutiny as advertisers using women as sex objects. One detractor is marketing and media critic Åsk Dabitch Wäppling, who maintains, “Studly Steve is as bad of a stereotype as Doofus Dad. They’re stereotypes, and that’s by definition not original. When can we return to product-as-hero advertising? When will we stop insulting people?”

    On her Adland blog, Wäppling savages the poster boy of the pecsvertising trend, the hunky model Anderson Davis, best known for his shirtless (sometimes pantless) pitch for Kraft Zesty Italian salad dressing. That campaign, created by TBWA’s Being, bowed this past April with an eye-popping spot casting Davis as a chef who adds Kraft Zesty Italian to a hot skillet. As flames shoot progressively higher, he asks the viewer, smolderingly, “How zesty do you want it? A little? A little more? How about a lot more?” Ultimately, his shirt catches fire and is singed right off his body, revealing a chiseled torso in all its glory.

    Once again, man candy proved a winning strategy. The clip garnered 2.5 million YouTube views and shot Davis and the brand into the chat-o-sphere, with fans able to share his image on social media via Zestygrams.

    “I would be lying to say I knew it would be that successful,” says Patrick O’Neill, ecd at TBWAChiatDay, Los Angeles, who oversaw the campaign. O’Neill strove to create “the ultimate chef” to engage the brand’s female demographic—fans of Sex in the City, Bridesmaids and 50 Shades of Grey who are tired of purely “functional” ads and hungry for spicier fare. “It’s nonthreatening and playful,” O’Neill says of the campaign, leaving “viewers in control” to concoct whatever fantasies they choose. And, he argues, “It was never meant to be taken seriously.”

    Just Say No to Nud*ty
    But some took it quite seriously, most notably the group One Million Moms, which raised all kinds of heck about a Zesty Italian print ad that ran this spring in national magazines such as People, Cosmopolitan and Glamour and that featured Davis sprawled with a picnic blanket covering his croutons.

    “Last week’s issue of People magazine had the most disgusting ad on the inside front cover that we have ever seen Kraft produce,” howled OMM, an offshoot of the conservative group the American Family Association. “Christians will not be able to buy Kraft dressings or any of their products until they clean up their advertising.” OMM was widely ridiculed for its uptight use of asterisks to censor terms like “g*nitals” and even “n*ked”—all of which served to give the campaign fresh legs, with Davis’ Zesty Guy doing a late-summer encore in a fresh flight of ads.

    As Wäppling sees it, OMM might have a point, as she, too, finds the ads shallow. And as a mother herself and part of the target audience, she doesn’t feel they speak to her. Moreover, she contends that by objectifying men, Zesty Italian actually does female consumers a disservice by reducing them to voyeurs on par with guys ogling models in ads that sexualize women.

    The critic draws an analogy with the controversy over Titstare, an app (that turned out to be a joke) exposing men gawking at women’s cleavage. “We might as well make an app called Ab-Stare, where Bethenny Frankel and the Good Morning America ladies fawn over Anderson Davis’ abs and share those images over social networks,” Wäppling says. “This is, in fact, exactly what these women did when Anderson Davis visited their shows—they posed with their heads next to his abs.”



    And yet, the Zesty Italian campaign isn’t even Davis’ hottest gig. This year, he also went shirtless for Beam Inc.’s Sauza Tequila in a marketing push by Havas Worldwide Chicago that appeared around the same time as his first Kraft ad.

    Sauza’s “Make It With a Lifeguard” spot finds Davis at the beach on a sweltering summer day, suggestively squirting suntan lotion into his palm and rubbing it in, at times in slow motion. He prepares a Sauza-Rita, with time-outs for rescues and peering through binoculars to see his own hunky image staring back. The commercial was a sequel to 2012’s “Make It With a Fireman,” which starred Thomas Beaudoin. “The brand wanted to target women, which was pretty revolutionary for the tequila category,” says Havas cd Ecole Weinstein. “So we figured, what better way … than with a hot, impossibly perfect man?”

    “Don’t overthink it,” says Rebecca Cullers, a copywriter and AdFreak blogger. “It means that heterosexual women like to look at fit, attractive men. It shouldn’t be a shocking revelation. I’ve heard that heterosexual men like to look at attractive women, too. And in general, people like to look at attractive people.” (Obviously, there are men who like to look at the hot dudes, too.)

    Still, Cullers sees obvious pitfalls. “What should worry men about these portrayals is that there’s really only one kind of guy being held up as ‘hot,’” she says. “It’s dangerous to limit the notion of attractiveness to a single model and, in the case of Kraft Zesty and Sauza, the same exact model.” (While the debate rages, indications are that the ads may be helping cash registers ring. Beam reported an 8 percent gain in global sales to $1.2 billion in the first half of this year, with Sauza a key performer, up 5 percent worldwide.)


    Getting Cheeky
    Injecting the studly ads with humor may help to offset any controversy—and Zesty Italian, Sauza and Renuzit all do to some extent. The Scent Gents have a light touch but don’t exactly bring the funny. Other hunkvertising campaigns make more of an effort.

    “There’s a difference between the Liquid-Plumr daydreaming girl, who swoons over the hardware store man as he drills a piece of wood, and the Zesty Guy who keeps losing his top,” says Wäppling. She views Kraft’s effort as “pure objectification,” but praises Liquid-Plumr as “situational comedy, recognizing that even suburban housewives have an active imagination.” The everywoman heroine of the Liquid-Plumr spot, called “Urgent Clear,” fantasizes about Peter, a handyman who promises to satisfy her with a seven-minute cleaning of her pipes. That effort followed the brand’s similar “Double Impact” commercial from 2012, featuring a pair of hunks.


    Some critics find Liquid-Plumr’s push safer and more appealing than the Zesty Italian or Sauza campaigns because it includes women in the silly narrative, clearly establishing that they are the ones indulging in fantasy. “We were able to put a twist on a key insight into our consumer—her take-charge, get-it-done attitude,” says Stacey Grier, chief strategic officer at DDB California. “We weren’t trying to make a statement or lead an advertising trend. We were just trying to use humor to communicate the benefits of Clorox products.”

    Elsewhere, a Diet Dr Pepper ad from Deutsch LA pushes the self-awareness envelope and pokes fun at studvertising itself. Josh Button, who rivals Davis for pure pulchritude, frolics shirtless in the sand and surf.

    “Millions of guys are born good-looking,” his voiceover begins. “But not many are really good-looking. Even fewer are really, really, really, really, really good -looking. At least, that’s what I’m told. I’m Josh Button, and I’m one of a kind.” A countdown appears on-screen during his spiel, running from 70,611,600 to 1.

    “We’re poking fun at ourselves and the trend of hot guys in advertising,” said Dr Pepper svp, marketing Jaxie Alt when the spot launched in May. Deutsch creatives Xavier Teo and Erick Mangali say the spot caught on at least partly because the setup is played as a goof from the get-go.

    Davis, appearing more sexually aggressive and subversive (he is one hot dude, to be sure), invites criticism from groups such as OMM; meanwhile, Button’s broader, over-the-top approach is more accessible and likely helped mitigate any complaints, say experts.

    Some marketers are digging through the vault to take advantage of this whole sexed-up-man boom. Take Diet Coke, which chose to revisit its famous construction worker spot from the early ’90s that (very) briefly made a star of the hunky model Lucky Vanous.

    For the reboot, BETC London cast Brit Andrew Cooper as a hardworking, overheated landscaper who catches the attention of some female onlookers, one of whom rolls a can of Diet Coke his way. Cooper promptly pops the top, salaciously spraying himself with product. And like Lucky Vanous before him, Cooper became overnight watercooler fodder.

    “The sexual imagery is obvious to the point of being silly,” notes Occidental’s Wade, pointing out “the sweating Diet Coke can rolling in the grass, the phallic tower in the background, the ejaculation imagery with both the spewing grass cuttings and, of course, the exploding soda.”

    Sweet Six-Pack
    Some hunkvertising has moved past comedy into the realm of the absurd.

    A 12-foot-tall fiberglass statue of Colin Firth promoting the BBC’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was erected in the middle of a lake in London’s Hyde Park this summer. (In the miniseries, the actor, who portrays the aloof Mr. Darcy, takes a swim in his shirt and emerges sopping wet.) Even more curious, Dove Chocolate whipped up a sculpture of TV personality Mario Lopez (just his torso, actually) to introduce its Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl variety. The huge hunk of chocolate was served at an August event in Los Angeles to drive home the message that Dove’s latest confection “tastes as good as it looks.”

    Perhaps what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and does hunkvertising, in fact, amount to equality of the sexes?

    “As women gain in education and the workplace and men take on more household and childcare responsibilities, there’s more gender parity” versus a generation ago when Lucky Vanous strutted his stuff, offers Ann Mack, who follows popular culture as JWT’s director of trendspotting. “This trend is symbolic” of a more even playing field, she says.

    Then again, maybe it’s all much baser than that. “This has nothing to do with equality—though equality is a good excuse for looking at hot men if you’re the sort of woman who needs an excuse,” argues blogger Cullers. “It had to do with equality back when Cosmo picked Burt Reynolds as the first nude male centerfold. At this point, looking at some abs while drinking Diet Coke is hardly a feminist revolution, particularly when it’s a remake of a popular spot from decades ago.”

    Occidental’s Wade concurs. “I wouldn’t call it equality—I’d call it marketing, and maybe capitalism,” she says. “Market forces under capitalism exploit whatever fertile ground is available. Justice and sexual equality aren’t driving increasing rates of male objectification—money is.”

    Jeez, dude! You have such a dirty mind.

    Just a lady casually inserting a 7-inch sandwich into her mouth.

    Size does matter -- the bigger the burger, the higher the satisfaction. Unless it's fully loaded.

    Just a dude casually putting dressing on a salad.

    Well, Tylenol will certainly alleviate the backache, but the package may still keep him up.

    you are missing the point. we all know that tripoli has a certain culture that should be respected. the objection is to the way the people - instructed by some religious figures - reacted.

    as i have pointed out before; civility and peace of mind requires them to send a delegation to the local coca cola explaining their peculiar cultural aversion to these issues, and you can rest assured coca cola will respect that, they do not seek to offend consumers, they want their business to go well.

    it is this violent reaction that creates issues not simply about the coca cola advertisement, do you recall how ashrafieh was burned in anger in 2006? these are very indecent and naked reactions, much more shameful and harmful than a poster my friend. all we seek is some calm and civility.

    Some viewers admitted that they were slightly disappointed by the very subtle representation of LGBT+ relationships.

    Some viewers have hailed the move as iconic while others were disappointed with the subtle reference

    In the film, starring Emma Watson, manservant LeFou will explore his sexuality after developing feelings for macho leading man Gaston.



    In an interview with Attitude magazine, director Bill Condon said: 'LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston.

    'He's confused about what he wants. It's somebody who's just realising that he has these feelings. It is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.'

    Mr Condon said the character, played by Josh Gad, is part of a 'watershed moment' for Disney. He said: 'The studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural – and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it's still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay.'

    Directors of Disney Pixar movie Moana have also hinted that the company are opening up to the possibility of their very first LGBT+ Disney princess.

    Ron Clements said: 'It seems like the possibilities are pretty open at this point.'

    Co-director John Musker added: 'It would be driven by a director or a directorial team that really wanted to push that, but I would say we haven't ever really had restrictions placed on what we've done.'
