Iain (by email): Check this out.

Liss: WTF?! Is that supposed to be splooge in the corners of the screen?! (Or behind the text when you click on something?)

Iain: I know, right!! LOL. If you thought that was bad then mouse over the arcade machine and check out Khaki Pants Pete.

Liss: You are fucking kidding me. Explain to me again how it's FEMINISTS who have the reputations for being man-haters when it's obviously misogynists who designed this site, and misogynists who think it's hilarious, despite the fact that it explicitly casts men as barely-civilized animals who hate their own wives and children?

Iain: I know. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the ad for the game and then found the source. Makes Burger King look like a NOW assembly.


So. It looks like Klondike doesn't want or need me as a customer. Good to hear they're doing so well in this recession they can afford to tell consumers to go fuck themselves.

Klondike is a Unilever brand—the same company that owns Axe (a repeat offender in this series), as well as the company that posts under the header Our Values: "Unilever is dedicated to being a good corporate citizen and neighbor. By playing an active role in society and making vital contributions, we strive to improve daily living and strengthen the local communities in which we do business."

My only question is whether Unilever regards the Klondike Man Cave as being more about "being a good corporate citizen" or more about "improving daily living." Because, honestly, I could do without citizens who are misogynist assholes, and my life would be markedly improved if shit like this didn't exist.

Contact Unilever.
