Vox Thinks I Am A WomanSeptember 24, 2006
All of the advertising I get on Vox has been pretty female-oriented from the beginning, but today’s ad takes the flowery pink cake:
It’s for Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses, and it encourages me to Share the Magic with [my] daughter! I couldn’t have made up a more hilariously inappropriate ad if I tried. My best guess as to why I’m getting these ads is because I have a purple Vox theme, but that seems like a pretty unintelligent way to target someone’s advertising. Am I doing something wrong? Is some 34-year-old woman with three ballerina daughters getting ads for FireWire hard drives and 5.1ch speaker sets?
