In fact, Jean Kilbourne, an outspoken critic of gender representations in American advertising, describes the social world of advertisements in her filmed lecture, Killing Us Softly, in these terms: They tell us who we are and who we should be.
Advertising reflects a mythological world in which almost everyone is white, a world in which men outnumber women by two to one, and almost all the women are young and beautiful. Forty percent of all women in television commercials are under 40, which is hardly the real world. In addition, it's a world in which absolutely everyone is heterosexual.
And furthermore, for the most part, still living in a nuclear family in which the man goes out to work while the woman stays home with the children. It's a world in which no one is ever disabled, either physically or mentally, unless you count the housewives that talk to little men in toilet bowls… emphasis added.
FYI… Depictions of children and ads directed to children in the s and s stressed similar divisions of male and female gender roles.
Although this remark is typical of Kilbourne's attempt at adding humor to what she considers an otherwise serious situation, the joke is closer to the reality of what the TV commercials actually showed than not.
For example, a commercial for Bully toilet bowl cleaner shows a woman talking to her toilet. Although certainly intended as a forceful visual demonstration of the intimidating task of keeping a toilet bowl spotless, it does show the housewife as overpowered.
Only when she acquires the proffered product promoted, of course, by an off-stage male chorus does she acquire the power to fight back. Commercial imagery like this helped set the stage for the feminist movement of the s.
Video 20 Click to view video When it came to depictions of race and ethnicity, the world according to TV commercials was white, English-speaking, and "mainstream" without identifiable ethnic characteristics.
TV families never seemed to have menorahs in their dining rooms, eat tortillas instead of bread, or speak any kind of "accented" English. This did not mean, however, that ethnic imagery never appeared in TV commercials. When it did, it was always in the most stereotypic and frequently denigrating manner.
Although there are many examples of such depictions, 36 two instances are particularly memorable because they created characters that stood in for entire populations of people.
The first of these is the infamous Frito Bandito, a mustachioed, sombrero-wearing south-of-the-border type who speaks with a Spanish accent. His role is "spokesman" for Frito-brand corn chips. As a Mexican or Mexican-American, he is presented as a natural authority on all things having to do with tortillas.
He claims that it's impossible to eat only one and is frequently discovered to be the culprit when the Fritos "disappear" quickly.

Although the imagery was modified somewhat over time his guns were removed after the Kennedy assassination, his 5-o'clock shadow and his gold tooth disappearedhe disappeared from the small screen by —but not before practically every TV viewer could identify him and describe his attitudes and behaviors, and sing his song.
Equally well-known was Juan Valdez, the icon for Colombian coffee. Valdez was frequently seen leading his burro through the coffee plantations of Colombia and selecting only the finest of coffee beans. Perhaps less offensive than the Frito Bandito, the imagery of Valdez picking coffee served to underscore the tedious and poorly paid work of picking coffee beans for export.
This imagery vividly depicts differences between those who produce and those who consume. As social critic Judith Williamson pointed out in her film, A Sign is a Fine Investmentadvertisements typically obscure the labor and production in favor of consumption and possession.
Valdez as producer and North American coffee-drinker as consumer is an all-too-familiar depiction of us versus them. It is the story of the "haves" and the "have-nots," of wealth and poverty, of rich countries and their relation to the Third World.
Video 22 Click to view video This early commercial imagery of gender and ethnicity began to give way in the s in response to a variety of social movements and transformations, including civil rights, feminism, and the rise of the OPEC cartel.
Advertising did not lead the way in depicting these social transformations, but it was impossible for it not to become involved. After all, if advertising reflects society as the industry typically claims, the society it purported to reflect was no longer a world willing to idealize the likes of June Cleaver or to observe the shenanigans of the Frito Bandito in silence.
These changes were however far from complete or universally accepted. There were those who believed that a women's place still ought to be in the home, but there were others who just as forcefully believed that women ought to stand on equal footing with men in the world of work.
What was advertising to do? Which model of gender should it depict? Although advertisers frequently complained that they were "damned if we do and damned if we don't," they often responded by trying to be all things to all people. Ads sometimes depicted women with a baby in one hand and a briefcase in the other—a not altogether atypical situation for many women who aspired to live meaningful lives both at home and in society at large.
The commercial in Video 23 illustrates how some of the ads from the s depicted these changes.They wrote process essays on shearing sheep, compare and contrast essays on favorite pro-wrestlers or rappers.
