Why Would This Make Me Want to Buy It?

Sorry to make you look at it, but wtf?

Does anyone else find Skinny Cow’s advertisements disturbing? I mean, first of all, it’s in the “paint me like one of your French girls” pose, and it’s wearing lipstick. They’re obviously trying to make a cow look sexy. Let me say that again. They’re trying to make a cow look sexy! Are they advertising directly to the furry fandom? Because outside of that community and Greek myths, cows themselves are not supposed to be sexy to people. That’s illegal.

Secondly, cows aren’t supposed to be skinny. A skinny cow is a sick cow. Possibly a dead cow. If you really want healthy milk or milk products, you wouldn’t want it to come from a skinny cow. That’s a good way to get sick, not a good way to lose weight.

Last but not least, have they ever actually seen a cow? A cow’s knees don’t work like that! They don’t bend the same direction as people’s arms and legs. So they didn’t really draw a cow. They drew a woman’s body, colored it black and white, and added a cow head. Creepiness aside, that makes me think they’ve never seen a cow before. Why would I want to buy milk from someone who’s never seen a cow before?

That’s disturbing. I keep seeing their ads and trucks everywhere, and it’s always disturbing. Why did they think that was the way to make people buy their stuff?

  1. I completely agree and would like to add that being referenced to a cow is usually a derogatory term. So why would anyone, and this company is obviously targeting women based on their cow’s appearance, want to be referenced to one, skinny or not. It just goes to show how targeted women are by the dieting industry. They want us to believe our bodies are never good enough unless they’re skinny. It’s disgusting, really. I will admit though, their salted caramel pretzel ice cream bars are the shit. Lol
