Sex and the Cereal

How the world has changed in the last 65 years. Today single women are portrayed as hip, sophisticated , urban; Not the sex starved old maids of this ad. However, the sentiment of Sex and the City is still here (sans the after-date foot rubbing); women sitting around discussing the ways they are going get a man...

Poor Auntie hasn't had any for a while, and she wants more.

The thing that is fascinating about this ad is how wild-eyed ravenous the women are for vitamins (sex). They are going have it every morning!

Thanks for commenting. Yeah it's such a strange ad. We don't have Weet-bix here, but it sounds tasty.
