Ive just seen that on the adverts in Britains got talent as well. I can't say I thought anything of it, and I don't see a problem.
You don't see women acting like goofy parents that haven't got a clue about like either, but you see men in those roles. Do you get about that as well?

Actually, I don't know hiw the technology works. I'm typing this on an iPad, and when I hit "post message" my words magically appear on MN. I haven't a fucking clue how any of it works, but it doesn't matter. And that's what the message of the ad is; even if you're not in the first flush of youth and feel a bit bamboozled by all the new words, you can still do stuff on an iPad.
And it is magic. So there.

I do a bit, clouds
It's honestly not like me to get so wound up by an advert. In fact, if the line 'don't ask me how it works, I just press this button...' was omitted, I doubt I would even have noticed.
I think it's probably because I'm quite technology savvy and have to overcome the 'surprised' looks every time someone needs help and it turns out that it's me that can help them, rather than DH.

This one doesn't bother me. But the one with the girl inviting the boy on a couple of dates and then resorting to buying his company with fish-fingers REALLY pisses me off. I find myself shouting at the screen "If you're not good enough for a trip to the cinema then let the little git find his own sodding fish-fingers! Have some pride!"
Possibly I slightly over-react.
