Adverts for men and women sketch

Postby verybod » Sun Jun 13, 2010 6:48pm

Hello Black Squadron,

I remember seeing a really good A&J sketch on youtube where they were taking the piss of how adverts for women are about how rubbish we are and in need of fixing, but adverts for men tell men how brilliant and amazing they are. I'm pretty sure it was an A&J sketch anyway. But when I tried to find it again, I couldn't.

Does it ring a bell with anyone, and could anyone track it down for me?

Thanks.

Hey, not exactly what you were describing but could you be thinking of one of these A&J scetches?

"Head on Shoulders" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7PV0fkHJKA

or the "Clean and Clear" one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezCC7SZ6HfM (Skip to 13:08)

Thanks for trying! I'm impressed at your knowledge. Maybe it wasn't A&J after all. They weren't dressed up as women anyway. It had some pastiches of deodorant/hair removal/beauty products for women adverts, with (I thought) A&J voiceovers saying stuff like 'women you are hairy and ugly', and then men's deodorant adverts and them saying 'men, you are brilliant'. Or similar. It was very good.

That's exactly it! Thank you. Sorry for having sent you on a wild goose chase and I hope my mistake didn't offend any black squadron members.

Cheers,

Rachel

I was curious about this and liked it...but, it really would have worked better without the canned laughter.

it's not 'canned' laughter, it's genuine studio audience laughter.
