Here is part of a reply to Offensive Commercials to Women-hidden esteem triggers
...HOWEVER - the reason why we are here on this board in the first place is the media. there are so many self-esteem triggers in commercials, because the whole point of advertising is to convince you to buy something, and how do they do that? by telling you (or simply suggesting) that what you have right now isn't good enough. isn't that low self-esteem, in a nutshell? and since we're exposed to advertising pretty much 24/7, then we're always absorbing that message.
What commercial irks you most?
