Someone sent me a link to this fascinating little advertisement over the weekend. In it, our weary, satin-clad protagonist must rip up a dusty grey carpet and haul it down an impossibly long flight of stairs. Got a minute? Watch it here:

The ad, we soon learn, is for laser hair removal. The suggestion is that unless we get our hair permanently whisked away by lasers, we women are forever doomed to drag hugely heavy, dusty shag carpets down impossibly long flights of stairs for all eternity… uh.. I mean are forever doomed to shave and wax and pluck away our ‘unwanted hair’ until we die.

The things we do in the name of beauty…(at least this ad acknowledges that hair removal is a drag…)
