A funny commercial that actually respects women! Oh, except the tagline at the end.

Snickers, the chocolate bar, has released a commercial that somehow manages to be offensive and sexist to both men *and* women.Don't get me wrong; most of the commercial is great. Pretty funny, actually. But then the ending just made me shout at my laptop, "BOOOOO, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE THAT TAGLINE." It basically reads: Treat women with respect? Nah, just eat Snickers, and your normal misogynistic self will return! What's even worse is that they make a sweeping generalization that all construction workers are catcallers. If not eating Snickers means people turn respectful and articulate, this is a terrible advert to get people to go and buy it.But *perhaps* I'm looking at this too deeply. In short: Catcalling isn't cool. Even yelling nice stuff to women randomly on the street isn't great either (Why yell anything?!). But let's face it, Snickers isn't going to solve it, so while the ending of this commercial kinda sucks, I still think the most part of it can be enjoyed.

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.

Just watch this clip of them narrating an equestrian event. (Language warning if you've got kiddos nearby. The first video is bleeped, but the others aren't.)
