Is this TV Ad for the Samsung Evolution Kit Offensive?

29 May

A new Samsung TV ad called Evolutionary Husband is outraging both women and men, who are slamming it as sexist.

The commercial shows a wife plugging a Samsung Evolution Kit, which turns any Samsung TV into an internet-ready Smart TV, into her husband.

After connecting the card, she fantasizes that her “lazy” husband transforms into a multi-tasking superman who performs every imaginable chore from styling her hair to baking treats to looking after the baby.

When the fantasy ends, we’re brought back to her real husband who is still loafing on the couch.

Critics of the ad believes it is man-hating, yet it’s already reached over 10 million views on Samsung’s YouTube channel.

Is Samsung’s new Evolutionary Husband ad sexist? You decide.
