I completely agree. It's absolutely loathsome to associate the hard-working men and women in restaurants with Kevin Federline. It's also — and stick with me here — a friggin' commercial.
Anderson continues, "An ad such as this would be a strong and a direct insult to the 12.8 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry." It would be, wouldn't it? Thing is, it doesn't portray a waitress at a moderately-priced sit-down restaurant. It portrays a guy that wraps burgers made in 20 seconds into little wads of paper and knows the difference between regular fries and curly fries. It also portrays the typical adolescent male who cant figure out why the Axe Effect isn't working for him, why his face isn't clearing up, or why the lame World of Warcraft admins singled him out for hacking when like everyone else in his guild does it.
(Also, whatever anyone does, please nobody forward Mr. Anderson the Burger King Christmas Carol.)
Thankfully Nationwide knows there's nothing wrong with the ad. Said Nationwide's VP of advertising, "We're not making fun of anybody, except Kevin Federline." Now that's what I call a healthy sense of... wait a minute. You're not making fun of anybody? Not even 16-year-old virgins? Then why the heck am I defending you guys?
