The New Oreos TV ADVERT

(298 Posts)
bella0207 Sun 12-Feb-12 13:17:57

I find this TV advert very disturbing. It is for the biscuits ORIOS. In it, a three year old girl is under her bed sheet like a tent teaching her father - who's head then pokes in - how to eat an Orio. She narratives what she tells him to do, how to seperate the biscuit and then lick the cream inside which she does very suggestively. The father is watching her very carefully. She tells him it is naughty and says he must not do it. Later the father sneaks down to the kitchen and eats the ORIOS from the fridge. He licks his lips in a;p;proval, his face expressing ecstasy.The girl is seen standing behind her father looking disapproving. YUK, YUK, YUK, YUK, YUK

ahhhhhpushit Sun 12-Feb-12 13:20:46

Not just me who found it creepy then!!

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 13:21:41

Ooh not seen it yet.

picnicbasketcase Sun 12-Feb-12 13:22:55

I did too - but then gave myself a mental slap about the face for being such a DM reader.

GirlWithPointyShoes Sun 12-Feb-12 13:25:07

and then lick the cream inside which she does very suggestively

No she doesn't.

TidyDancer Sun 12-Feb-12 13:26:16

Oh I haven't seen it yet either. Anyone got a link? I feel bad for judging without seeing it, but if that description is accurate, YANBU.

As an aside, I do wonder how the fuck these ads get made....doesn't someone at some point think this might be how it's seen?!

HowToLookGoodGlaikit Sun 12-Feb-12 13:28:01

It's Oreos.

crazynanna Sun 12-Feb-12 13:28:12

I don't see the girl licking the cream suggestively.

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 13:29:06

Can't find a link. It's still the doggy one on You Tube.

southeastastra Sun 12-Feb-12 13:30:07

hahaha some people really do read way too much into commercials. i just think they look sickly

Abcinthia Sun 12-Feb-12 13:30:39

I haven't seen it yet,but am a bit confused about a three year old doing anything 'suggestively'.
I'll go and have a shufty on YouTube, but preparing myself to be mystified as usual grin

Kayzr Sun 12-Feb-12 13:31:31

Why 2 threads on this?

Also YABU, it is nothing like that. Yes she licks a biscuit but its not suggestively at all.

Here have a Oreo biscuit

crazycanuck Sun 12-Feb-12 13:31:51

orEos

howitis Sun 12-Feb-12 13:31:52

Have you gone frickin nuts? Suggestively? I find you more disturbing than the advert!

yabu

Frankly, it's crazier than Christmas to attribute any sexual stuff to it. hmm

If it was anything like you described it yes, it would be a paedophiles favourite advert. Thankfully, it's nothing like you suggested.

The bedsheet is on the floor in a brightly lit room, there is no suggestive licking.

PinkPeanuts Sun 12-Feb-12 13:33:13

Most bizarre analysis of an advert I've ever seen. Nothing about it is suggestive.

PamPerdbrat Sun 12-Feb-12 13:33:21

Can a 3 year old lick suggestively?!

Gribble Sun 12-Feb-12 13:33:42

www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeA28L8Pt0U

Nothing 'suggestive' there at all. Stop clutching your pearls.

Just watched it, personally think it's very sweet!
I find attributing sexual undertones to it to be very strange indeedhmm

diddl Sun 12-Feb-12 13:35:03

"She tells him it is naughty and says he must not do it."??!!

OP-I think you need help!

Although I would say the biscuits look revolting & the idea of dipping/dunking them in milk extra revolting!

TidyDancer Sun 12-Feb-12 13:35:18

Oh for the love of God. I've just watched the link. Nothing suggestive about it at all.

Ridiculous.

scottishmummy Sun 12-Feb-12 13:36:06

youre being obtuse and seeking offence where none exist
wanky socialsciencetastic interpretation

Magneto Sun 12-Feb-12 13:36:33

Not suggestive at all, and saying they're under a bedsheet is misleading, the bedsheet isn't on a bed it's hung up like a tent.

Chubfuddler Sun 12-Feb-12 13:36:50

Honi soit qui mal y pense

You have a warped mentality op.

diddl Sun 12-Feb-12 13:36:58

So, to answer your question-here´s a big fat YABU.

TheCunningStunt Sun 12-Feb-12 13:36:58

YABU and a little mental. If you think a three year old can seem suggestive, then it's you that has issues I am affraid.

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 13:37:15

Thanks '*Gribble*, I can never find stuff on Youtube. I think the girl is very sweet ( a bit like a young Karen from Outnumbered), and the ad is absolutely fine. I can't see anything suggestive at all.

toomuchcheese Sun 12-Feb-12 13:37:33

"his face expressing ecstasy"

erm.... What exactly are you suggesting? That he is indulging in some sort of biscuit game below the camera shot?

I used to like licking the middle of custard creams when I was a kid, so do my kids now. Should I be concerned?

<baffled>

i think you must be a weird to see anything suggestive or whatever in that advert#

i hate oreo adverts because they promote bad manners but other than that..hmm

Magneto Sun 12-Feb-12 13:37:57

Oops sorry not what I meant to say, got distracted by ds aiming sticky jam hands at me while I read the post.

Ignore me <backs out of thread> blush

Distended Sun 12-Feb-12 13:37:58

yabu and creepy

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 13:38:34

Oreos are lovely, especially the ones with 'double filling'. Yum.

TheScarlettPimpernel Sun 12-Feb-12 13:40:07

You, madam, are as mad as a spoon.

Gribble Sun 12-Feb-12 13:40:36

Also OP you have obviously never seen ecstasy on a mans face if you think it looks like that, he just looks mildly satisfied.

Gribble Sun 12-Feb-12 13:41:56

<arf> @ "Double Filling"

insancerre Sun 12-Feb-12 13:42:25

hahahahahaha
what a weirdo, OP

MissMogwi Sun 12-Feb-12 13:42:47

YABU. Good grief.

HillyWallaby Sun 12-Feb-12 13:43:49

I haven't seen it, so forgive me if I make a judgement based on the OP's description alone.

OP, if the advert brings to mind early sexualisation of the girl and paedophilia leanings in the Dad, I suspect it might say more about your state of mind than about anything else.

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 13:44:00

Oh Gribble you are right. 'Double filling' sounds extremely suggestive. blush grin It's like 'Carry On Mumsnet'. grin

picnicbasketcase Sun 12-Feb-12 13:46:06

grin gribble

'AIBU to think my partner is cheating on me with this ham baguette? He had this look of ecstasy on his face when he'd eaten it...'

Ample Sun 12-Feb-12 13:47:13

My 5yo dd licks a cream biscuit filling just like that. It's not done in a suggestive way at all.
YABU. Get your head out of the gutter.

ps, the advert isn't v.good.

Gribble Sun 12-Feb-12 13:47:41

Sparkling I thought you did it deliberately, you know, in keeping with the tone of the OP grin

MissAnnersley Sun 12-Feb-12 13:48:23

Absolutely nothing wrong with the advert at all, apart from the fact dunking biscuits is gross.

How weird OP.

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 13:48:36

They do exist Gribble, they really do. grin

IQuiteLikeVodka Sun 12-Feb-12 13:49:04

YABVVVVVVVVVVU! Nothing suggestive at all!

microcosmia Sun 12-Feb-12 13:54:55

I don't see anything suggestive here. Actually she quite reminds me of the little girl in Outnumbered !

LadyBeagleEyes Sun 12-Feb-12 13:55:41

Well I think it is outrageous.
Oreos are American and are being pushed on us, the British public, and they're rubbish.
What's wrong with our good old British biscuits, eh, eh?
Hobknobs people or Bourbons but boycott Oreos.
Pah.

manticlimactic Sun 12-Feb-12 13:57:39

The only thing I found weird about the ad was why would you open the biscuit, lick it and put it back together again. What's the point?

WorraLiberty Sun 12-Feb-12 14:00:38

My god I've just watched it on youtube and anyone who thinks such an innocent advert is 'suggestive' needs their head looking at hmm

He licks his lips in a;p;proval, his face expressing ecstasy

You call that expressing ecstasy???

Jesus Christ, considering half the Galaxy adverts show women hoarding/hiding chocolate and having a virtual orgasm over the stuff, I think you're being VVVU here.

Chubfuddler Sun 12-Feb-12 14:01:26

When I was a child I carefully prised one half off with my teeth, scraped off the chocolate filling with my teeth and then ate each half in turn. So it looks perfectly normal to me.

catgirl1976 Sun 12-Feb-12 14:06:17

YABU and very strange if a child licking a biscuit seems sexual to you

But I think you know that by now

Maybe you were just having a moment

BoneyBackJefferson Sun 12-Feb-12 14:11:45

I find this one much more disturbing

woopsidaisy Sun 12-Feb-12 14:19:54

Can't a Dad play with his daughter without all this hysteria? OP, YABU.
Nothing in the world of advertising has annoyed me more than the ads for my beloved Hunky Dory crisps! How could they!?
Sexist Crap.

TanteRose Sun 12-Feb-12 14:20:50

OP, you are being ridiculous - get a grip

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 14:22:16

We assumed it was (computer-aided) dubbed, possibly a bit CGI-ed.

Whatever, even without the deconstruction I just didn't find it cute or amusing. More cringe-making.

HillyWallaby Sun 12-Feb-12 14:22:23

Actually that yoghurt one did make me laugh. Wrong I know...blush
they never would have got away with showing it the other way around.

RuleBritannia Sun 12-Feb-12 14:22:34

It wasn't suggestive. Couldn't understand some of what the little girl said though. The father should have taught her that licking the inside of a biscuit and putting it together back was rather unhygienic if it were to be put back into the tin for others to have.

It was no worse than that advertisement for R White's lemonade where a man crept downstairs at night for a drink. That was more watchable.

ConstanceChatterley Sun 12-Feb-12 14:23:15

YABU It's fine, you're seeing what you want to see.

And it's OREO

(Speaking of Oreos, they have FINALLY started stocking double stuff ones in my local supermarket - my life is now complete!)

WorraLiberty Sun 12-Feb-12 14:24:25

Hmm I've just checked and the OP is either new or a name changer

I really hope they're not a perv posting this because they see it as a sexual fantasy or something sad

It's not like they've come back to either thread....

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 14:25:12

I think if someone does think it crosses the bounds of decency, they can complain to the ASA via its web site. Unfortunately the ASA does not yet accept complaints on the grounds of adverts being bloody irritating.

cocolepew Sun 12-Feb-12 15:42:45

Op if you think that's how you be suggestive, you're never going to get laid.

everlong Sun 12-Feb-12 15:45:54

We all saw the advert last night and said what a cute little actress.

Nothing suggestive jumped out to me precocious maybe

startail Sun 12-Feb-12 15:46:44

Get a fucking life OP.
The girl is in full fancy dress in a fairy castle style tent showing her dad in a shirt and tie ( just come in from work) how she eats a biscuit. Nothing suggestive at all.
Just a parent sharing a child's game and then smelling down to the kitchen to be a child himself.
Please get a life.

DaPrincessBride Sun 12-Feb-12 15:49:02

YABVU

That is not a sexual advert

YuleingFanjo Sun 12-Feb-12 15:50:36

op needs to sort their head out.

AmberLeaf Sun 12-Feb-12 15:51:40

I have to say I didnt like it either!

Saw it once just the other day and I just didnt like the adult tone in the little girls voice/lines. I dont think its sexualising as such, but the slow deliberate tones in her voice are similar to the way an adult actress might play a 'seductive' role.

More importantly for me is that I have never seen a little girl of that age speak in that way.

Its an advert, its not real etc etc. Just didnt like it myself.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 15:56:09

AmberLeaf that's why we thought it had been dubbed / CGI-ed in some way.

OhDoAdmitMrsDeVere Sun 12-Feb-12 15:58:43

Ha ha ha @stop clutching your pearls grin

Advert is crap but not sexual in any way shape or form IMO.

OP, I think you are A Bit Mad

Soz

AmberLeaf Sun 12-Feb-12 15:58:51

Yeah maybe? either way I think its a little odd.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 16:00:40

I think it would be interesting if the child used (any child used of that age)was in fact too young to say the script attributed to her.

catgirl1976 Sun 12-Feb-12 16:00:55

OP!!! Some one agrees with you smile

A bit anyway

<pleased, as as strange as the OPs view is, hate to think of people being all alone>

fuzzypicklehead Sun 12-Feb-12 16:01:39

Oh, FGS! Of course the acting isn't great and the girls lines aren't typical of a normal 3 year old... It's a friggin' biscuit advert! Were you expecting Oscar-winning performances? And spell it right, dammit.

<mutters about posters making me think about Oreos when I have none in the house>

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 16:06:10

I've never had an oreo.

catgirl1976 Sun 12-Feb-12 16:08:05

Oh LineRunner - they are delicious

Sparklingbrook Sun 12-Feb-12 16:09:59

Anyway, Catgirl, you'll eat anything. grin

catgirl1976 Sun 12-Feb-12 16:11:52

anything except the sweetcorn in a chicken and mushroom pot noodle as you well know LineRunner smile

piprabbit Sun 12-Feb-12 16:12:28

I was always jealous of American children when I was growing up because they had shop-bought cookie dough and the chance to lick and dunk Oreos. I thought Oreos sounded delicious.

As an adult I now know they taste like cardboard.

I suspect that the ad is dubbed to get rid of the original American accents.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 16:13:00

Yeah, well, no-one eats that shit, Catgirl. It goes without saying.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 16:13:45

Had the ad aired in America?

catgirl1976 Sun 12-Feb-12 16:16:25

blush sorry. Am ashamed of my greed and dustbin like ways sad

Do you know, I went to an all you can eat thai buffet a few months ago and took them at their word. DH was ashamed.

Two days later I walked past and there was a sign in the window saying there was now a time limit on the "all you can eat" offer.

To be fair I was 7 months pregnant when I went and craving thai dumplings but the shame blush

Didnt touch the sweetcorn though <retains shred of dignity>

YankNCock Sun 12-Feb-12 16:16:55

It's weird, I remember them tasting better when I was a kid in the U.S. When I've had them over here, they do taste a bit cardboardy. Maybe you're making them wrong. grin

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 16:22:26

America destroyed Terry's Chocolate Orange for me. grin

I do love Jon Stewart, though. I'd definitely do him.

Acekicker Sun 12-Feb-12 16:22:50

Meh (haven't seen advert but am going to assume an advert featuring a small child and parent is not in the least sexually disturbing). Oreo adverts just irritate the tits off me as they're still (after at least a decade) trying to persuade the UK to love them and eat them the way they do in Amercia, as if only American kids split biscuits and lick the filling out.

AmberLeaf Sun 12-Feb-12 16:24:38

To add, I also cringe at that advert for Haribos where the ugly cute little girl tries to get her dad to sign the 'fession'

Maybe I have ishoos with cute little girls?

<or the electra complex>

YankNCock Sun 12-Feb-12 16:25:08

Back off LineRunner, Jon Stewart is mine!

I actually hugged him and told him I loved him. Right after I fell up some stairs because I was gawping at him. blush

W0rmy Sun 12-Feb-12 16:28:44

OP you have got to be fucking joking, haven't you?

Have a look at the cheese string ad with that poor cheese string man having to parade around in his banana hammock, that'll get your pervy senses twitching. hmm

W0rmy Sun 12-Feb-12 16:30:18

Where the child speaks in an incorrect way that an "adman" thinks is cute/appealing to adults.

Wrong!

YANBU AmberLeaf I hate that little girl and her stupid fession!

ZuzuBailey Sun 12-Feb-12 16:54:36

I really don't like the Oreos advert with the (very cute) little boy and his dog.

He tells the dog that mum says it isn't allowed biscuits, yet she lets her son eat crap junk Oreos! hmm

picnicbasketcase Sun 12-Feb-12 17:00:52

I'll you what I didn't like. The ad for that bread that kids think is white but it actually has wholemeal flour hidden in it or something. The mum threatens to make the boy eat his pet caterpillar but then gives in because he'll eat the pretend white bread. I think it was a couple of years ago. I'll stand for no nonsense of that kind. My children eat wholemeal bread because it's what I buy and I don't give a toss if they'd rather have white.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 17:02:41

I hate most adverts, to be fair.

Except that one for Carling Black Label. And the Guinness surf horses. And the Cinzano Bianco ones. I'm sensing a theme.

1fab Sun 12-Feb-12 17:04:37

sick sick sick

This recipe for Oreo cheesecake is unbelievably good. The biscuit-crumb base is virtually black, which gives it an unusual appearance (could be tweaked for a Hallowe'en party?)

Now I really want some. I really want some. All I have is some bloody McCutcheon yoghurts and they won't hit the spot angry

LadyBeagleEyes Sun 12-Feb-12 17:07:07

I'm liking the Virgin one with Usain Bolt in it at the moment.
There's something about him.

picnicbasketcase Sun 12-Feb-12 17:07:50

The polar bear still has something of a menacing air about him though. If he had a sixties East End gangster voice and said 'Buy these prawns or I'll CUT YER' in the next ad campaign it wouldn't surprise me.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 17:14:26

That could give comedy Derek a job after EastEnders.

DavidaCottonmouth Sun 12-Feb-12 17:16:51

Licking the cream out of the inside of the Oreo is part of Americana. They have been doing it since Oreos were invented. There are probably songs written about this.

chattymouth Sun 12-Feb-12 17:21:11

ok for a millisecond i though erg i dont think i like this, then as others said give my self a smack round the head it is an advert.. a little girl and her dad.

Yabu and strange and perhaps a little pervy to suggest such a thing from an innocent advert.

LineRunner Sun 12-Feb-12 17:23:52

Oh, Oreo, I'll lick you out inside
And go to church and I'll shoot a gun
Coz ma daughter's fail to clean again
Oooh, Oreo,

No thank you, I'll stick to custard creams.

fit2drop Sun 12-Feb-12 17:43:18

OP , how very disturbing for you to be living inside your head.

With that sort of mentality there is no wonder that some fathers are so afraid to just play with the kids for fear of everything being misconstrued.

RabidEchidna Sun 12-Feb-12 17:50:48

Anyone finding that add "suggestive" is a bit odd TBH

RabidEchidna Sun 12-Feb-12 18:00:48

OP I think you should seek some sort of help (processional) as you clearly have a very damaged view of the world.

Not every man is a wife beating child raping nut job, but sadly there are some nut jobs that see wife beating child raping men everywhere they look.
A father has AS MUCH right to interact with his child as a mother does. I think seeing something sexual in a child eating a cookie shows the problem is with you OP, I mean the last advert was a little boy showing his dog how to eat one, so was the child in to beastiality or was the dog a raving pervert?

ChooChooWowWow Sun 12-Feb-12 18:57:00

Bloody hell dh and I just cracked up because the child is so like our own dd.

I find it more disturbing that some people can make something as innocent as interaction between father and dd into something sordid and sexual.

TheFeministsWife Sun 12-Feb-12 18:59:41

Jeez, YABU, I think it's quite cute. (In an annoying way).

Yes, god help us, a father playing with his daughter without a mother supervising hmm

squeakytoy Sun 12-Feb-12 21:18:18

Like most others have said.. anyone who sees something wrong in the Oreos ad needs to take a long look at themselves, and get a grip. There is nothing suggestive about it.. and I find it really disturbing that anyone can see it in that way too..

OP YANBU,
I thought the ad was really weird too. Very worrying that Oreos and their Ad people thought this was suitable considering the volume of paedophile cases reported each year.

fit2drop Sun 12-Feb-12 22:09:52

ok ok OP has not returned so I will ask ifitsnotanarse

why exactly is the ad weird.

Your mind has to be of a certain mindset to even think of anything sexual when a child is involved,
to actually think/believe or even consider that a toddler can eat a biscuit in a suggestive way is at best bizarre and at worst very very disturbing .
Again I say , no wonder fathers are afraid to interact with their own children for fear of the lunatic babysitting brigade who would accuse a childs shadow of being a perv because it rests too close to a child .
The only sickness here is the people who believe that an advert with a child in is seen as sexual..

My fave all time ad is the wine gums one from years ago...

OP YANBU,
I thought the ad was really weird too. Very worrying that Oreos and their Ad people thought this was suitable considering the volume of paedophile cases reported each year.

What the hell is wrong with people like you? Really you need to get to a head shrink because if you see this Ad as paedophilia then you really have some damage that you need to deal with.
I know in the hard core man hating world of some of mumsnet men are the devil incarnate but come on, it is meant to portray a father and daughter moment and as much as a lot of women see a man as just a sperm donor and one that is just waiting to rape the nearest child in the real world not every single man get his jollies from molesting children.
Grow the hell up

Morloth Mon 13-Feb-12 09:10:24

It is creepy as hell to watch that ad and see anything but cute and twee.

Seriously fucking creepy anyone who sees anything a 3 year old does ever as suggestive needs to have a word with themselves.

Weirdos.

porcamiseria Mon 13-Feb-12 09:14:55

SWEET JESUS

i find this thread more disturbing TBH

VivaLeBeaver Mon 13-Feb-12 09:24:05

Not seen the ad but think YANBU.

They should do it with bourbons instead.

jillb2012 Fri 17-Feb-12 14:39:31

Don't worry OP, I'm completely with you on this one. The rest of the bullies on this forum are slowly getting the UK to accept paedophilia, I'm praying without even realising it.

Did you know that in the UK, we are now considering no longer punishing paedophiles but instead TREATING them with tax payer's money!!!???!!! Society here are slowly, not only accepting things that were not socially acceptable a few decades ago, but actually embracing them! Paedophilia is now joining the long perverted list.

In This Morning, Eamon Holmes said on the subject of treating paedophiles "My opinion is zero tolerance, am I wrong in thinking that?". Fancy that Eamon felt that he had to question his own obvious morals.

Back in the early 80s there was a show called Minipops on Channel 4 which had young kids singing songs dressed up as pop stars. From Wikipedia, "Controversy over children singing songs that often contained a subtext of adult content, in adult costumes and make-up led to the show being cancelled after one series."

You see, those were the days when our country had BACKBONE. Now sadly, our society happily accepts shows like "Toddlers in Tiaras", "The Joy of Teen Sex", etc.

When this Oreo advert was designed, there were a lot of fat cats with their own hidden sexual perversions and POLITICAL agendas that approved it. They carefully planned a criteria to use words like "hard", "lick it", "mmmmmmm", etc, etc before it was even filmed. Give me the same very sweet young girl or I'll use my own daughter to make my own advert from scratch for Oreo and I promise you, this thread would never have existed. Plus Oreo's sales would have probably increased.

The advertising industry are CONSTANTLY at it and have done the same in the past to fulfil their racist points of view.

You shameful lot would be happy to continue burying your head, laughing and BULLYING those who actually know what's going on and/or are CONCERNED about what's actually going on around us.

You're the same people that would allow a man to enter the same changing room as my young daughter all because he wears women's clothing! Why not vote him to win Big Brother at the same time? Oh you've already done that!

This site should not be called mumsnet but it should be called bullysnet - just look at what's been written by apparent mums and how you've ganged up on one mum expressing her feelings.

I'm certainly no pedo and I'm guessing neither is the OP.

When a thread has been dead a week how/why does it just get revived like that?

shock jillb2012 WTAF??!! I think it is very sad to read such disgusting perversions into a father and daughter ad. Makes me feel so sorry for fathers who have to think "will some DM reader think I'm a pervert" before actually having fun and interacting with their daughters. sad

Fuck. Ing. Hell. I... Fuck it, I can't even be bothered to try to come up with a response to that level of crazy.

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 16:28:27

HillyWallaby Fri 17-Feb-12 16:34:06

Good, glad you cleared that one up Pag, I was musing long and hard on what you might have meant. confused

He's a proper frother that one. (I'm sure it's a he.)

'Rabid pile of shite' is spot on.

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 16:36:06

I should have thought of something cool and groovy that my 'grad' could be Hilly. Dammit.

achangeisasgoodasarest Fri 17-Feb-12 16:39:03

You are very odd, OP. I see absolutely nothing sexual in that at all - in fact I think it's really sweet. Think it says more about you than about the ad.

cocolepew Fri 17-Feb-12 16:40:42

Matthew Wright is going to have a ball with this hmm

Dh and I found this really sweet. She licks it because Thts what kids do to food! Plus then she cm feel her brother one she's alrready licked.
Or is that just my dd?.

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 16:45:19

I think the young girl is beautiful and puts in a very composed performance. Perhaps her appearing older than her age is what is putting the knickers in a twist.
A pretty massive leap to her being suggestive though, a gutterward leap

NotWell Fri 17-Feb-12 16:47:37

I have seen it, not ONE aspect of it struck me as sexual.

MrsChemist Fri 17-Feb-12 16:52:52

The frothing OP and the crazy bumper remind me of the Brass Eye special.

Disguised as a school!

AmberLeaf Fri 17-Feb-12 16:57:37

Jeeeez, ok for me it is the way it is shot/scripted etc etc that bothers me, NOT the fact that it is an interaction between father/daughter which is of course perfectly normal.

You know that ads arent real he isnt really her father? its shot in such a way as to appeal to the audience, all the time a lot of the time in advertising they tweak things to make them look more appealing.

How old is she meant to be? 3-4? honestly does anyone know a little girl of that age that speaks in that way? slow and deliberate breathy tones? I dont think so.

I think you are all missing the point of the OPs outrage TBH. certainly mine.

LaBoccaDellaVerita Fri 17-Feb-12 17:01:26

You're defending the OP AmberLeaf? I can't believe that but it seems you are. I am just stunned at the way you people are thinking? Seriously - get some help with those issues and meanwhile have a quiet word with yourself - your way of thinking is nothing short of poisonous.

AmberLeaf Fri 17-Feb-12 17:08:54

No im not defending the OP

This is not about father-daughter relationships its about advertising

I dont have 'issues' what exactly do you mean by that? please do clarify.

Its odd because it appears that people are so keen to get on board with the stance that 'all men are not rapists' which I happen to agree with myself, that they are calling the OP and others [inc me!!] mental for not liking the way an advert has been shot, that is the problem its not because it depicts a father and daughter fgs!

Can I ask you all, do you think TV ads are a fair depiction of reality? I know you cant all think that! ive read enough on here about advertising and sexism etc etc to know there is a pretty enlightened bunch on here with regard to that sort of thing.

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 17:12:21

Fair enough Amber. But she is not supposed to be appealing in a way that is inappropriate. Surely the attempts to make her look perfect are so that the ad represents the lifestyle the viewers aspire to - the perfect, smart child with the adoring daddy spoiling her.
I didn't think she was breathy. I quite like the way she is talking to the dad as if he is an idiot - something DD has been doing since she was a toddler grin
Would a major company be seeking to imply an abusive relationship as a means to sell a biscuit?
The customer is the loving parent. Any linkage with 'oreo, the biscuit of choice for any would be molester' would be a massive problem.

fwiw I find it massively sad that anyone sees that ad and sees anything sexual.

woollyideas Fri 17-Feb-12 17:15:34

Fucking Ada!

There are some right weird people out there. Who could see anything sexual in that advert?

Pag, may I politely suggest you never go into advertising?

AmberLeaf Fri 17-Feb-12 17:19:54

I dont think they are trying to imply an abusive relationship though not at all.

I think they are trying to make a 3 yr old sexier than a 3 year old actually is in real life.

I quite like the way she is talking to the dad as if he is an idiot

hmmm I dont but thats a whole other argument/thread tbh!

fwiw I find it massively sad that anyone sees that ad and sees anything sexual

ok. so if a person sees something implied however subtly in an ad then its their fault and they must have issues to be seeing it?

I think its sad that they need to 'sex up' a 3 yr old to sell biscuits but there you go!

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 17:23:28

Stealth

I will add that to the list of jobs I will never try. It's quite long grin

No obviously it is not a real father daughter, but in context of the ad that is the relationship they are portraying. I know it is about advertising. I would not describe her as speaking in a breathy tone either, and I think anyone who sees the ad this way is over analysing it.

coraltoes Fri 17-Feb-12 17:26:04

Just watched it for first time. What I saw was a child teaching her dad how best to eat a biscuit. That was it. No sex, no suggestive gestured, no paedo fun. Just a kid and a biscuit.

I have never been so gobsmacked in my life at how fucking uptight some people can be!!

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 17:26:21

Amber, I didn't suggest it was anyones fault that they see something sexual. I said I think it is sad. That does not imply blame. I am not blaming anyone. I think it is sad.
I also never said you had issues. I think you are responding to things that another poster said to you.

AmberLeaf Fri 17-Feb-12 17:31:00

In saying you think its sad you are implying I have an issue with something though.

I know it wasnt you that actually said issues.

coraltoes Fri 17-Feb-12 17:32:18

I'll say it! You do have issues if you are reading sexual messages from that advert!

woollyideas Fri 17-Feb-12 17:32:20

'sexed up'?

Really?

jillb2012 Fri 17-Feb-12 17:34:50

Thank you!

My faith in humanity has been restored!

jillb2012 Fri 17-Feb-12 17:35:33

Thanks AmberLeaf ^

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 17:38:31

No. I am saying that society is such a mixed up response to things around sexuality, children,stranger danger and rampant commercialism that it is sad that anyone can watch an ad and wonder about such things.

If I was suggesting that you personally had a problem I would say so.
I think the whole stranger danger policy is sad. By that standard I would have a problem with half the world.
Although I do have a problem with the slightly salacious op, if that helps.

AnyFucker Fri 17-Feb-12 17:38:38

jillb2012 Fri 17-Feb-12 17:39:57

Chubfuddler Fri 17-Feb-12 17:40:35

Is it a breed? Or are the sheep laughing.

LaBoccaDellaVerita Fri 17-Feb-12 17:42:39

FFS - I'd rather be part of a flock of sheep than the kind of sick twisted individual who can find paedophilia in a fucking biscuit ad.

Chubfuddler Fri 17-Feb-12 17:47:34

These ad men conspiring to make us all tolerate paedophilia - they wouldn't be lizard people as well by any chance?

Pagwaatch Fri 17-Feb-12 17:50:12

Sheesh sounds a bit like a sheep lolling.

Can you link the research Jill. The stuff that will explain all to me.

AmberLeaf Fri 17-Feb-12 18:07:26

sick twisted individual who can find paedophilia in a fucking biscuit ad

Im neither sick nor twisted and as I said im not seeing paedophilia im seeing questionable advertising imagery.

Yy Chub, they could well be lizard people. Or illuminati. Or alien mind control clones. Or the people who faked the moon landing. <tightens tinfoil hat>.

Hmm, Pag, sheesh kind of also sounds like my Nan's decrepit, crazy old cat sneezing.

coraltoes Fri 17-Feb-12 18:10:58

If by research you mean the daily mail....

coraltoes Fri 17-Feb-12 18:13:15

kerstina Fri 17-Feb-12 19:47:02

I had not thought about any sexual connotations but I really dislike the advert.
The little girl is acting like someone out of a horror film. A very creepy and annoying advert.

RobinSparkles Fri 17-Feb-12 19:59:38

FFS, I think YABtotallyU!

"licks it suggestively", WTF?
It's a little girl, in a tent that she has made (like children do, with bed sheets) with her daddy. She's showing him how to eat an Oreo following the pattern of all the other Oreo adverts. She's being very bossy to him, which is supposed to be comical.

What about the little boy, in the last one, who is talking to his dog? He licks it, closes his eyes and says, "mmm". Did you think they were trying to promote bestiality with that one? Get a grip!

I'm with Jill20198 or whatever she's called. We do need BACKBONE and we should be called Bullysnet. So true.
And Eamonn Holmes should be our Moral Leader. I know I look to him for guidance. Some may say he sits on that sofa like a spud sack filled with yoghurt, spewing out questionable and ignorant shite. Not me. Onoes.

Jill, have you seen the Disney adverts? Blokes in costumes trying to get kids to come and play with them. Prolly using taxpayer's money somehow. Fuckers.

AnyFucker Fri 17-Feb-12 20:12:33

Eamonn Holmes is currently the top TV earner

he earned 3million quid last year

He must be doing summat right

fuck me if I know what is is

newbiedoobiedoo Fri 17-Feb-12 20:16:59

I reckon this has to be trolling? Who would look at a three year old girl licking something "suggestively"? It's vile to even suggest it and would say a lot more about the OP than the advert!

I have no words for Jill so I'm not commenting.

This whole thing just makes me feel a bit sick.

RobinSparkles Fri 17-Feb-12 20:17:57

Eamon Holmes? Nah, I think Jeremy Kyle would be better! I always look to him for guidance, at the end of the day.

Are you allowed to move threads twice Helen?

No matter where it is it is an odd OP

Whitebandana Mon 20-Feb-12 08:59:01

Oh perleeeez. Can you really not hear yourselves? Those of you who are choosing to make snide insinuations about the minutia of the theme and production of this advert are, frankly, showing quite disturbing signs of overcompensation. Anyone who is able to extract so much indignity from even the most innocent of content must surely have spent a less than healthy amount of time familiarizing themselves with the real subject matter. As a newcomer I'd caution many of you to be wary of your neighbors in threads like these as I do not believe that their motives are as pure as others. Some very dodgy people here masquerading as concerned parents; very transparently in my book. A lovely, sweet and well thought out advert. Loving parents who look to make real, fun connections with their children will relate toit.

Whitebandana Mon 20-Feb-12 09:16:38

Ok, I've calmed down a bit now and have since seen that there are more pages to this thread than I originally thought and that the massive majority of you all seem to be decent, reasonable and rational people. Shame on the rest of you.

Crickey, I have no words.

jillb2012 Mon 20-Feb-12 21:59:40

Call it whatever you want: corporate paedophilia, sexualisation of children, predatory marketing, premature sexualisation, unprincipled advertising. It's real, it exists and it's happening all around you.

It involves the specific carefully planned practice of sexing up young children in advertising. The results whether you like it or not, whether you SEE it or not, sadly plays directly into the hands of the growing number of perverted scumbags in our country. The number of paedophiles convicted for sex attacks on children has rocketed by nearly two-thirds in six years. From: www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/number-of-paedophile-convictions-rises-by-two-151258. Should we really ignore what's feeding this horrible depravity and encourage it instead?

The only reason why I feel passionate about this and analysed this in the way I did is purely because I CARE about the path our society is heading down. Naive words and actions are slowly moulding the society in which our children have to grow up in.

Think bigger picture people, please! We are ALREADY living in a country that is seeing increased sex attacks on children. We are ALREADY thinking about using taxpayers money to pay for paedophile's to be treated and not punished. Some of us are ALREADY questioning whether thinking zero tolerance on paedophilia is acceptable. We have ALREADY sold very young children clothes with "Future Porn Star", "So many boys, so little time", etc written on them and sold padded bras to 7 year olds. Seriously, where are we really going with all of this? A national campaign for Gary Glitter's return perhaps?

READ THIS BIT VERY CAREFULLY: Had the EXACT same scene been aired on our screens but it was an actual reality TV clip, I would be the first to share my "Aww"'s, "Bless"'s and "How sweet!"'s. But it wasn't, it was a carefully designed TV commercial, that required lots of planning before filming even took place. This type of advert is unfortunately in my opinion, a gift for paedophiles everywhere.

I ask you this: Is it not at ALL possible that this advert could encourage paedophilia? How about any of these images used in advertising - www.jours-apres-lunes.com/fille.html ? Or are they all as innocent as this biscuit ad?

If we all INTERPRETED things in the same way, then campaigns like Mumnet's very own "Let Girls be Girls" campaign wouldn't exist because we would all consider that advertising agents are all innocent.

I really hope some of you understand the point of view instead of posting out a barrage of childish comments.

I have just found two yes two packets of oreos in my first husbands kitchen cupboard, should I take the children away from him as clearly he has sinister intentions, how could I not see it what with him being a cub scout leader and all, oh my the signs are all there now, also he used to change the children's nappies, read them bedtime stories,and play with them, how could I have been so stupid.
That will teach me for letting a man in to my children's lives I should have chucked him out the day I fell pregnant and made him give me his house and half his money. I should have know a man could not be trusted.
Should I call the police? I mean two packets of Oreos

RabidEchidna Tue 21-Feb-12 08:49:05

Jill my dear I think you need help for what ever it is you are trying to cope with

AmberLeaf Tue 21-Feb-12 12:46:19

Forget Oreos, that post had lots of good points and links that if were included on another thread [poss in feminism] would have been congratulated and agreed with.

What a load of sheep!

Pagwaatch Tue 21-Feb-12 12:54:36

Baaaaaaaa

grin no really..

Actually there are lots of things in that post that I agree with. And I absoloutely agree with the poibts about the use of sexualised images of children in advertising.

But I just cannot see the child licking the inside of an oreo in that way. I don't see the child in that ad as sexualised. I was abused at that age - this stuff matters to me. But i don't see it. I am not sure that makes me a sheep.

Who are sheep Amber? Only three poster had reacted to jill's long post before you posted. Hardly a flock.

jill, I agree with a lot of what you've said in your latest post (praps not the STUFF IN CAPS so much wink). But not agreeing that the Oreos ad is pervy doesn't mean we disagree with the broader issues, just that some of us don't see the subtext you see in that particular ad. In others, yep, but not so much in that one. I think it's a cheesy and contrived advert, more than a little irritating. But it doesn't come across to me in the same way it clearly does to you.

AmberLeaf Tue 21-Feb-12 13:14:15

I Think this thread would have gone very differently even if posters didnt agree re the oreos ad if it had been posted by someone more 'well known' s'pose thats what I mean by sheep, but ill take that back as it sounds ruder than id intended it to on reflection.

I got annoyed at some on this thread when they started to call people 'mental' and suggested they needed their heads examining. That was rude.

Oh I see. Probably, yes. Though less about well known and more about the tone of the OP perhaps.

AmberLeaf Tue 21-Feb-12 13:37:12

Hmmmm, nah im still going with well known, ive seen much worse 'tone' from MNR going unchallenged TBH.

oltob Thu 23-Feb-12 16:27:39

I agree with amberleaf "I just didn't like the adult tone in the little girls voice/lines. I dont think its sexualising as such, but the slow deliberate tones in her voice are similar to the way an adult actress might play a 'seductive' role."

I saw it last night for the first time and found it a little discombobulating as I thought the child's voice had obviously been dubbed with that of an older child which detracted from the cutesy, bossy toddler thing I guess they were after. Either way naff.

For me oreos are only ever any good when needing excavating from a tub of cookies 'n' cream.

cuppatea2 Fri 24-Feb-12 20:16:17

errrm, doesnt anyone else think the op was being tongue in chek or anything? or thread about a thread maybe?

scottishmummy Sun 26-Feb-12 10:53:14

no just socialsciencetastic chuff
purposefully trying to find offence and sinister motives

bemybebe Sun 26-Feb-12 11:00:48

YABU OP
and I did not realise that so many people are completely bonkers... wow

Whitebandana Tue 28-Feb-12 23:33:58

Jill, you’re doing a good job of trying to redeem yourself with some good research on valid and true subjects; the problem is that you've diluted the value of those arguments by attaching them to the reasoning for your comments on this advert.

I think you were hoping that lots of people would jump on the alarmist bandwagon and that parents around the country would be shouting out of their windows waving clenched fists in the air. Fortunately there have been plenty of people with enough common sense to strike more than a note of balance to your comments. Simply put, you’re right about the issues but this is the wrong example to use.

scottishmummy Wed 29-Feb-12 20:35:56

Jill accusing majority of bullying and lackadaisical attitude to paediphilia because we don't see the sinister sexual undtrtones she and op see

ocoste Thu 01-Mar-12 01:17:31

This message is in the main to Bella, but also those who share ‘her’ view that there is something untoward or ‘creepy’ about this advert. Firstly, I’m neither a mum nor a woman, but I signed onto this site ONLY to respond to this thread. I had just watched the ad on tv, and googled to see it again as I thought it was priceless, in a humorous, totally innocent way. After reading your comments ‘Bella’, I can’t recall when I was last left so speechless (initially!) and appalled.
It’s people like you who propagate the ‘every man’s a paedophile’ hysteria that pervades our society today. I don’t know your story or what unpleasant experiences you may have had in life, but please, go and get some help! Go for counselling. I've just gone from laughing my socks off at something very cute, but very innocent to feeling my skin crawl at your comments!

As other’s in the thread have said, your comment on the child “lick the cream inside which she does very suggestively.” What is wrong with you for crying out loud? She’s a 3 year old child enjoying a biscuit. She’s not showing her dad how good she’d be at fellatio. Are your demons that evil?
Many years ago, I was with a colleague (in uniform) and at the lifts of block of flats. A young girl approached us as asked me to open the ‘ice-pole’ she had. As I was doing this a woman came barging through a door from the communal laundry like a bat out of hell, shrieking as us “what are you doing?”
This was in spite of the fact we were both in uniform, and standing in full view of cctv. It’s neurotic, hysterical females like her, and YOU, who have contributed to the sad situation we have today, when a man is fearful of showing any emotional affection to even their own children, for fear of being pegged a ‘kiddy fiddler’. Shame on you I say. Harsh words? I don’t think so, have another read of your posting and gross misrepresentation of a perfectly innocent tv advert?!

roumegoux Thu 01-Mar-12 13:58:13

I cannot believe the comments I've read on this site regarding the Oreos advert. When I watch this advert. that little girl, to me, is pure and innocent, and her acting father is just so proud and in awe of her. I do not see any suggestiveness at all. I think you have all got sick warped minds and I agree with the last comment from ocoste you definitely need counseling. I will not let you spoil the joy I feel when I see this advert, she is such a cute, gorgeous and innocent little girl and the advert brings me such joy when I watch it. I feel sorry for all you people who think otherwise you much have a very cynical view on life and people.

lizmamof1 Fri 02-Mar-12 11:54:52

I cannot believe what I've read. This advert is wonderful. What a great little actress this girl is. It is so sad when some people are determined to smear every last vestige of traditional family love and values with the putrid delusions in their own head.
What really disturbs me is that the original poster is most likely a parent. Dear God, what kind of relationship can your children have with men if you allow whatever has happened to you in your life to rob them of their potential for a more mentally healthy life.
Please take on board people's objections here. This cannot be an isolated incident and your opinions are deeply disturbing.

zillah45 Sun 11-Mar-12 19:58:17

I concur. This is the best advert i've seen in a long time. The little girl is a brilliant actress and there is NOTHING suggestive about any of the advert - either the child licking the biscuit (that's how children eat biscuits), and as for saying the father is in ecstacy???? So he likes the biscuit? For goodness sake, is there not enough rubbish in the world without making problems when they aren't even there. I'd be extremely proud if my child could act as well as that lovely little girl. Get worrying about things that actually matter in life!

NanaNina Mon 12-Mar-12 14:29:51

Have you got the message OP!!

G27384 Thu 15-Mar-12 17:16:56

I really can not believe this post! I think this is the funniest advert I've ever seen. The little girl is really funny. As for the "subliminal sexual suggestions" that you think are in the advert is nothing more than in your own head. Nothing sexual crossed my mind about this advert and the fact you even thought that makes me thing that you are the disturbed one! Let me guess, you don't work and you stare out of the curtain all day looking for things to moan about! What a sad person you are. It's laughable, really!

SuSid Sat 09-Jun-12 23:48:00

I typed 'oreo advert creepy' into google as I too find the advert in poor taste and it creeps me out every time I see it. I mentioned this to my housemate and she laughed and said I had a dirty mind?? So I came online to find that infact there ARE others that find the tone of this advert ever so slightly suggestive!

Its hard to explain in detail what the little girl does but it seems wrong!!!!! How this got onto TV I do not know!! Im shocked at the reaction of some people as the sexual connotations are obvious to me.....

SuSid Sat 09-Jun-12 23:53:09

I have just found the advert on youtube and there are TONS of people saying the same thing that the advert creeps them out and has sexual connotations!!! The debate is carrying on over there so im afraid its pretty obvious to lots of people!!

crazynanna Sat 09-Jun-12 23:57:17

Depends on the mind connected to the eyes that watch it.

My eyes (and my mind) see absolutely nothing but a 3yo child eating a biscuit.

Did we not debate this back in March? Ad's been on for ages...you just seen it?

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 00:12:15

Im not alone in what I am saying, it is most certainly not in my mind or eyes. Thank you very much!!!!!! This is irresponsible advertising.
Its the words said, 'hard, lick it, put them together because theyre married, mmmm, its naughty'. Then the male wants some and she says 'no you're not ready yet' in a gravelly voice usually associated with seduction. The way its forbidden and secretive behaviour and a child enticing an adult!
Im worried that others dont find it creepy?? WHY?? Its not just about licking a biscuit its a whole whost of other things that set the scene. To me it is blatant!
I am astounded that it's on telly I shudder every time I see it!!

nymets Sun 10-Jun-12 00:12:55

dear fucking god, in the nicest possible sense

get a life

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 00:14:28

I shudder every time I see it!!

Well..switch channel

It's only a commercial

<another commercial>

ToothbrushThief Sun 10-Jun-12 00:15:10

I really don't get how some people see sex in things to do with children????

It never occurred to me to link sex and the advert because it had a child in it. That just shuts down that part of my mind.

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 00:15:16

I sooooo wanted to say that, nymets

TheDreadedFoosa Sun 10-Jun-12 00:19:06

Hahaha...what the fuck was going on with those freaky messages in march?
Were they posted by oreo androids?

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 00:19:48

TROLL. I suppose you cant reason with ignorance and stupidity!! Why the bad language... Thank god I do not go with the grain of the majority because the majority of people are as thick as two short planks. Just like you potty mouth!!

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 00:21:52

Good move...pissing off the majority

TheDreadedFoosa Sun 10-Jun-12 00:31:00

FAR more interesting than this irritating ad is how those weird posts came about, and why?

G27384
Zillah45

Pleeeeeease come back and explain... Are you work experience bods at the ad agency?? You are, arent you??

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 00:31:37

Seems some people get a power trip by banding together on this site with their mindless comments... and to think you are all parents, doesnt bode well for the future of the UK. As if we didnt have enough Jeremy Kyle, Sun reading fodder in this country as it is! I am RELIEVED to disagree with the majority on this thread as most of what I have read is disgusting abuse! Alot of others think the oreo advert is weird. Face facts!!!

SkipTheLightFanjango Sun 10-Jun-12 00:33:26

It's a shit advert..that is all!

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 00:34:50

oh do go away there's a dear.

It's late and I cannot be fucking arsed arguing the toss with some weirdo who sees sexual content in ads with children. It just doesn't calculate in the brain with us 'normal' "jeremy Kylers" you see....sex and children...just does not calculate

ToothbrushThief Sun 10-Jun-12 00:39:59

SuSid - go and clutch your pearls elsewhere. I haven't banded with anyone - in fact I read page 1 (part of) and last and thought I might be against majority.

I don't read the Sun, watch soaps, J Kyle and do face facts. I work with paedophiles. I still maintain that the issue lies in the minds of those that see sex in an advert with a child in it. Face facts yourself

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 00:49:29

If a child was engaging in an act that was clearly learned sexual behaviour from an adult such as holding his privates exclaiming 'suck my **' (this is an example used from real life events) would you not 'compute' it because it was a child?
On the gypsy wedding programmes there are children dancing provocatively learned from music videos, do you think 'awww look at those little children being sexy, so cute'?? And ignore the sexualisation for fear of being branded a sick minded perve? NO!!
The advert is twisted and so is society it seems!!!

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 00:52:16

she was eating a biscuit ffs!! Not grabbing anyone's privates and saying anything!

You are seeing what you want to see

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 01:01:24

Its the words said, 'hard, lick it, put them together because theyre married, mmmm, its naughty'. Then the male wants some and she says 'no you're not ready yet' in a gravelly voice usually associated with seduction. The way its forbidden and secretive behaviour and a child enticing an adult!

Sorry, did you miss that bit??

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 01:03:47

How dare you suggest that I WANT to see a child behave provocatively!!! YOU ARE SO WRONG and I am disgusted that you would suggest it!!

I Do NOT want to see a child behave provocatively, hence why I am on here venting about an advert where this happens????? Comprende?

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 01:03:52

err yes I did miss that bit because it was a child saying the words...not an adult.

But you obviously see something I didn't

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 01:04:34

oh go away you are boring now. You see what you see...that is all.

SkipTheLightFanjango Sun 10-Jun-12 01:06:11

Pretty much anything can be rude if you want to see it that way. It's a naff ad, get over it!

cocolepew Sun 10-Jun-12 01:06:47

'gravelly voice'? You're a fucking idiot.

SuSid Sun 10-Jun-12 01:15:44

I get more and more annoyed every time one of you numpties tell me im seeing something that is not there. My reaction is that the advertisers have cocked up royally, not that the child is a turn on!!!! The sooner you dense lot twig this then maybe you can take your abuse elsewhere!!! To the advertisers!

Im a 'f***ing' idiot?? Its hilarious how trolls bahave on these threads, Id love to see what you are like in real life, hiding behind your computer giving abuse, laughable! Goodnight dimwits!!

crazynanna Sun 10-Jun-12 01:17:09

hahahaha we are the trolls!

Goodnight weirdo

perplexedpirate Sun 10-Jun-12 01:18:11

This is the strangest thread I have ever seen.
And considering there's arse-crack shaving masterclasses on here tonight, that's no mean feat.
confused

cocolepew Sun 10-Jun-12 01:18:35

I'm not a troll. I'm giving my opinion and that is you're a fucking idiot.

Empusa Sun 10-Jun-12 01:25:43

Holy zombie thread batman!

An experiment..
How many posters have joined MN just to post on this thread? And how many of them agree with each other?

SkipTheLightFanjango Sun 10-Jun-12 01:30:27

grin @ perplexed

CheerfulYank Sun 10-Jun-12 01:58:53

Wow. I just...shock

I am quite prudish when it comes to things I think are inappropriate for children, but this wouldn't even come close to tripping my radar! It's a little girl explaining how to eat an Oreo! Do all of you who are saying it's sick avert your eyes when you see a child licking an ice cream cone too?

Nothing sexual about it. Any opinion otherwise is ridiculous.

ToothbrushThief Sun 10-Jun-12 08:47:03

susid must be a troll deliberately provocative surely. I've just watched the advert and really struggled to see if I was missing something... I wasn't. It's an innocent advert.

If not deliberately provoking, then I pity someone who really does see sex & children in a number of innocent situations because it must impact on so many areas of life. I would recommend talking to a professional and getting help.

RubyDeesMummy Tue 12-Jun-12 13:00:51

HOw anyone can see anything weird about this advert I don't know, if my little girl and her daddy were playing in a sheet den I would think nothing of it. I used to play in dens and forts with my dad and nothing bad happened! You people all read too much into these adverts, it's purely an innocent game. I personally find it funny when she catches him eating her oreos, it's not pervy it's just a man being a man, I know for a fact that if I told my bloke not to eat something that looks yummy he would eat it! The problem with the world now adays is that because of all the pervs most things sound pervy even when they're not. If you see something disturbing it's probably because you are disturbed.

Quit your moaning and go eat an Oreo biscuit

advertmonitor Sun 01-Jul-12 01:20:54

This advert is creepy. Every time I see it, it makes me pull a face, it's uncomfortable watching a little girl saying "first you lick it" and going "mmm" while that creepy guy is a couple of inches away from her under a bedsheet. I totally agree with bella0207. I don't get how the advertising standards people haven't picked up that the whole advert has paedophilia written all over it. No doubt the makers thought it was cute but anyone with half a brain and some social awareness would find it creepy too.

damozbeckz Tue 03-Jul-12 18:51:54

its only about a fuckin oreo,
you lot need to get a life theres nothin at all suggestive about this advert at all
ur all just looking to far into it

DowagersHump Tue 03-Jul-12 19:01:39

This has to be the most bizarre thread I've read on MN in ... ooh, a good few days.

Loons, OP you are an utter loon. And you Jill, you too

crazynanna Tue 03-Jul-12 19:04:38

the whole advert has paedophilia written all over it.

For crying out fucking loud! hmm

CAZYB Mon 09-Jul-12 22:00:56

This thread has incensed me! I am glad that there are at least a majority of mums out there that DONT find this sexual.
It is an advert yes, but its is supposed to portray a father and daughter, if it were your husband/partner and your child, would you think that way suggestive if they played in a makeshift den???
The little girl is clearly bright and therefore elequent and no one should suggest that she is speaking in adult tone and words, she was given a script and as a clearly gifted child she was easily able to articulate it well.
I find the previous Oreos advert where the little boy cannot figure out how to get the milk out of his sippy cup to be able to dunk like his brother a lot more disturbing.
Society is dumbing down! We think that children who a less able do things are cute but bright children are sugestive/precotious! We cannot even portrey families playing with each other without them being scruitinsed for being too suggestive.
Wake up England and realise that this needs to change. if we carry on this way we will all have to dumb down to the lowest common demoniator and wrap ourselves in little bubbles so that we have no way of physically interacting with each other for fear of being accoused of pheodiphillia!

bellabreeze Thu 06-Sep-12 01:15:30

I have seen this advert a few times and just seen it on tv again and thought 'for god sake I can't be the only one who finds this weird...' so I googled oreo advert sexual' and this thread came up

DelightedDanielle Tue 12-Feb-13 18:17:44

At no point is it ever suggested that the man under the cover is her father. I question his motives.

Flisspaps Tue 12-Feb-13 18:21:04

This thread is 12 months old (today!)

Happy birthday, thread!

BIWI Tue 12-Feb-13 18:22:01

Why post on an old thread, about advertising that is no longer being aired on TV?!

FriedSprout Tue 12-Feb-13 18:28:57

It is on again, saw it today. Call me old-fashioned, but I think it is very sweet.

spacytracie Thu 14-Feb-13 22:38:01

A lot of people find this advert unsettling, maybe for the reasons the child is displaying adult behaviour and the intimate setting... A lot of the YABU COMMENTS on this thread are inhospitably ganging up on those who've been unsettled and have decided to speak out. The fact they find it unsettling, and many people do, does not, as the slander suggests, mean there is anything wrong with them. More like it is with the cognitive disonance and lowest common denominator witch hunt mentality amongst the comments made here.
I think the point people are trying to make is that in this world we live in, where paedophilia is on the rise and the world just will not wake up to sexual predators - this would be their favourite advert
And they've every right to find it worrying

Pretzelsmakemethirsty Mon 08-Apr-13 09:13:29

This is definitely an inappropriate advert. I am sorry if it appears over the top to consider the suggestiveness in the "just lick it' and the "Mm..." from the father as suggestive, but it just is!! In an 'innocent world', the advert is adorable, but knowing about how there are so many perverts in this world makes this a 'dangerous' image to perpetuate.

Fenton Mon 08-Apr-13 09:16:14

Yes there are a lot of weirdos in this place.

MadameSin Fri 12-Apr-13 09:26:22

I do love an old thread being dragged up. This ad has been reinstated recently as have seen it. The suggestion he's not her father and up to no good is sick. There's no suggestive licking, he doesn't look aroused and he is defo her father as she calls him 'daddy' ... or is that a metaphor for a 'naughty daddy' Jeeze, you lot are crackers, have warped minds and it scares me to think you would see anything sexual in this advert or is it a fantasy of yours?? Frankly, I'm concerned you all exist sad

nickatelle Sun 19-May-13 21:53:49

I totally agree with RubyDeesMummy, CAZYB and MadameSIN anyone who sees anything pervy about this ad should go crawl back under their rock. If you can see anything other than a delightful and innocent child playing at being an adult and treating her daddy as the child, then I'm afraid it's you I'd be worried about. The ad is quite funny and she is a
talented little actress I have noticed her in a few different ads recently.

russetbella1000 Sun 29-Sep-13 13:52:11

Bleugh......Just seen the Disney world advert, is there no thread about that one...Pervy dad can't handle his little girl growing up so whisks her away to Disney world where he can control his fantasy...Or am I just reading too much into it?
