SHAME ON CONAIR, please read about this ad

Hello,

Last night I saw such an anti-curl ad on tv I thought I was asleep dreaming on the couch. I am providing the link for you here, open it and watch the 60 second ad for the Infiniti.

/home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.conair.com%2Fcommercials.php%3FcntpcID%3D12" class="Popup

I am so offended. There's a darker skinned girl with GORGEOUS ringlets and they mention her "frizz" and imply her and another girl (with 2a hair I believe) are savages and need to "tame" their hair. I mean it's one thing to say "we're selling a straightener" and it's another to show actual beautiful natural curls and plaster them up as if the girl is wanted for committing a crime. What do you guys think of this ad?

    That is a horrible commercial. I was disgusted when I first saw it.

    Basically calling curls "thick and frizzy" is like calling a short person "small and inadequate!" We're BORN with these thick frizzy curls. It's not like she chose to have that hair, although her hair is beautiful anyway. Then again, I have to wonder, these girls did choose to model for this ad? I wonder what THEY were thinking!
