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?
