60. You have characterized the ad as "nasty" and "sexist".

Unfortunately, I either cannot see or find the ad, so cannot comment directly, and can only make inferences based upon your characterization, which I will presume is a truthful judgment of perception for you.
~In general~
It is common for advertisers to appeal to a natural sense of sexual desire to create and associate an expectation that if we 'buy', the associated desire will be fulfilled. The important thing to remember is the advertisement is nothing more than a lie wearing a mask of appeal to extract something else from us, without ever giving us resolution toward the associated desire created.
