    Have any of you Tber's seen the OverStock.com commercials with the young woman talking about: "It's all about the Ohh."

    Whether she's lounging, posing by the mirror, or in that cute little tennis outfit.

    She's cute enough, but the ads are...weird? I either laugh or am befuddled.
    Any thoughts?
     
  2. She's my current tv babe. Ever since the first time I saw that commercial. Especially when she's sipping the straw :hyper: :bawl:

    FWIW, I would put her in the "Woman" vs. "Girl" category.

    The advertising technique is trying to create a subconscious shift in your mind that either using "The O" will "gain you access to her virgine (source: Borat)" or that using the site somehow makes you more sexually desirable.

    Also, using a "TV Babe" gets your attention.

    You may not understand the add, but you obviously remember it.

    I am pretty sure any moron can understand the ad. I don't think that's what P Aaron meant. It's befuddling in that it's an entirely ridiculous commercial. Am I the only one tired of having everything sold with sex?

    You know, I actually went to overstock.com. They really didn't beat my current music retailer selection or price-wise.

    The hotness of the woman is definitely not equal to the quality of the site.

    There are enough of these threads praising women in commercials.
