Repost of an ad, putting male-female myths into wordplay

A woman will often be called pushy for the same thing a man would be called persuasive for. Or she’ll get called a bitch when he gets called a boss. We know this, but it’s very rare that we see the double standard so plainly called out in a nationally syndicated commercial. Of course, now that that very commercial is actually airing, it’s only showing in the Philippines and it’s being used to sell hair products, but still — this Pantene Philippines commercial is pretty cool stuff.
