Is This SYMS Ad Sexist, Offensive, or Hilarious?

Pin it


Jezebel alerted us to an ad that seems to suggest that you can forget a woman’s name, present her with dead flowers, laugh at her for having opinions, make her pay for dinner (the nerve of some people!), and generally come off like Tucker Max without any of the “charm,” as long as…

…you wear the right suit.

Jezebel had this reaction:

According to [this commercial], if a guy is wearing a suit from SYMS he can treat his date like garbage and she’ll still have sex with him. After all, what woman can resist a crappy $99 suit? [Jezebel]

Sarcasm aside, the headline noted that SYMS is suggesting “Women Reward Unsuitable Behavior With Sex,” even if they’re doing it as a joke. What do you think? Are you offended by the ad or did you find it clever?
