Kelsey Wallace at Bitch Magazine is right, this Acer computer commercial starring Megan Fox is refreshing for its lack of sexist objectification of Fox. Too bad for the stock comedy “fat nerdy guy who can’t handle talking to women” character. The bit where Fatty Fat Fatty shakes hands with Fox and then refuses to let go is especially choice, because it’s so important to remind America that fat guys aren’t just social incompetents; we’re also sexual harassers.
(P.S. I’m also a little bugged that that Fox is all “Free the Lobsters!” at the restaurant at the start of the commercial but doesn’t mind sentient, speaking dolphins being locked up in tanks.)
