Have you seen that Lucy Liu laptop commercial?
That is the sexist commercial I have ever seen in my life. Some computer company or something, I'm not even aware of their product, that is how tantalized that commercial left me.

scene: Some library corridor, presumably at a university. Woman sitting in a chair with Lucy Liu on her lap. Lucy Liu gazes into the woman's eyes and say's "This one always makes me laugh" Then she turns into a laptop computer.

Damn, that one floored me.

1. We caught that one last night...
...and I turned and said afterward: "Did anyone else find that to be really really creepy?

The one with Seal in it is a lot more entertaining, the Liu one is just strange...

3. If by "creepy" you mean "hot"
and "strange" you mean "unbelieveably hot" then I agree with you

9. Nope, "creepy" meaning "creepy."
And I can think of a few other Asian actresses I find "unbelieveably hot" rather than Creepy Liu...she scares me... :scared:

18. I thought it was creepy, but I am straight woman.
I also thought that lesbians and straight men would love it, kinda erotic.

exotic Lucy, prim library type (but still cute) looking like they just did something naughty and have a secret... it's dirty in a clean way.

6. By "sexist" do you mean sexiest?
Your title left me a little confused (although I can understand a typo if you're typing one-handed about Lucy Liu...)

8. Yeah, now the editing period has expired.
Freudian slip perhaps? :blush: So sue me! I'm only f-ing human!

10. I hadn't seen the commercial before your post
but if the image on the NY Times site is part of it then I agree with you - it looks to be a fascinating commercial...

And the slogan of the campaign ("Experience entertainment. In Your Lap.") takes on a whole new meaning... :)

16. Nothing's wrong with it - I do it every day...
:)

I was making a joke about a typo that diluted the meaning of the message...

7. Is she the one major "sex symbol"
who isn't tall and blonde with fake boobs or so scrawny that they look like anorexics? And why aren't there more like her? Lucy is sexier and just plain more attractive than an infinite number of blonde bimbos in the Pam Anderson mode could ever be. (No offense to our blonde DU sisters, I know none of you are bimbos :))

11. You have to remember that it's OK to treat Oriental women as sex objects.
Seriously, it's not just sexism, it's racism. It's classic stereotyping - Geisha/"sucky-suck, five dollah". Either a submissive robot or a whore. For some reason it's one of the more acceptable stereotypes, despite the fact that it's loathsome, racist, and sexist.

14. People often don't mind selling themselves out too... or others like them.
Humanity will never change.

13. I was having a "Chris Farley" show flashback here.
"Have you seen that Lucy Liu laptop commercial?"

"yeah?"

"That was awesome."
