A few weeks ago, I posted this Target Women video, a spoof news show segment about the way that yogurt is marketed. I was hoping that they’d do more, particularly because I thought the woman doing the segment, Sarah Haskins, was really funny.
The folks at Current TV noticed and sent me the latest clip (a good thing, because I can never remember to check these things on my own). This week, Sarah takes on television shows about weddings. Enjoy.
The second half about Bulging Brides is the best part. I think that a lot of us know what Sarah’s talking about when she points out that the purpose of this kind of programming seems to be all about convincing women who feel fine about their bodies to freak out about how fat (and therefore, of course, disgusting) they are. And then to buy the diet products that are undoubtedly marketed during the commercial breaks. Good for Sarah on calling this shit out and being rightfully unashamed to show her own body (which, other than bust-size, resembles mine quite closely in terms of size and shape).
Seriously, that show looks atrocious — I don’t know about you, but I had a strong urge to punch both of those trainers in the face. How sad is our society when people to actually sign up for this?
