Bad Ads - Domino's

The guy in the Domino's salad commercial just seems like the personification of  the concept of toxic masculinity.

There's just such an ugly hostility to this ad. So much anger and contempt for the salad eaters who all just happen to be women, and all sort of seem smug and arrogant. It's like a 30-second helping of "women! Am I right? Always ruining all the fun!"

Also, there's this whole like "Ungh! Must eat man food! Salad for girls and girlymen! Must eat something to clog artery!" It reminds me of the "Just a Salad" episode of Seinfeld where Jerry's masculinity is called into question because he's trying to eat healthy.

So, fine. If it'll keep you broads from ruining pizza night, we'll start selling salads. Okay? Happy now? Geez! Can't we big tough macho men have one little thing we enjoy without you dames comin' along and spoiling it?
Hey, can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em, am I right?

Also, maybe try working on getting pizza right before you branch out into other foods, hmm?
