Ian Crouch on Woodford Reserve’s controversial new ads: http://nyr.kr/1mdYvZm
“Despite the modern, fashionable feel of its new ads, Woodford Reserve’s definitions of gender are radically narrow, and its sense of the possibilities for human sexuality even narrower. Men must appeal to women, and women to men. To attract women, men have to be rugged and capable while maintaining a perfect veneer of nonchalance. Women can spot a phony or a wimp a mile away.”
Men and women must appeal to each other? Sounds good to me.
