Ok, so I saw this commercial last night.

....

A couple of seconds in I was like, "Ok, points for making a commercial that's not completely obvious what it's about from the get-go..." And then, once it was clear what it was about, I just had this completely unsettled feeling that I couldn't really articulate.

Does anyone else feel like the message is, "Hey ladies! Your vag is the only thing anyone cares about you for! Make sure it's clean and smells nice, m'kay?"

Still can't really articulate the feeling I'm having. Rage seems a little too strong, but... *headdesk*

I don't think it's possible for Summer's Eve to make a non-offensive commercial, considering that the entire purpose of of their company is to convince you that your vagina is gross and wrong and you need to fix it (at which point other companies can jump and and convince you that you need to get vaginaoplasty or a brazilian or buy dye to make it pinker).

I think the thing that really gets me is they're trying to disguise it as praise and/or worship.
