Marks and Spencer Christmas Advert 2009
M&S Christmas Advert 2009 M&S Christmas advert starring Wallace and Gromit, Stephen Fry, Philip Glenister, Noemie Lenoir, Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley and James Nesbitt alongside Myleene Klass and Twiggy. I've heard that the advert has attracted some contoversy because it ends with the lingerie model, Noemie Lenoir, dancing around in M & S underwear. Is it sexist? Of course it is, but that's how they sell more underwear! Am I offended by the advert? Not really. I suppose it would be better (or at least less sexist) if they showed a male model posing in underwear too but to be honest I don't think too many women will be thinking about underwear as gifts for their husband or boyfriend, whereas, there are plenty of men who will purchase sexy underwear to give to their wives or girlfriends for Christmas. What do you think of the advert? Are you offended by the way it ends?
