Colbert is busting the beauty industry once again. This time, he’s spoofing some truly awful ads for Summer’s Eve Douche.
The vagina is a self-cleaning organ. We don’t need douche, washes, sprays, or anything else to keep our vaginas clean. In fact, douches and soaps can disrupt the balance in that area and cause more harm than good. While Colbert doesn’t get quite so technical, he does a great job pointing out the double standard when it comes to advertising to women versus ads targeting men. Check it (Alert: this is sort of a PG-13 video):

Like he says in the video, “I don’t think that it’s fair that women have these commercials marketed to them, telling them that their bodies aren’t good enough the way they are.”
Though I will admit, it is sort of an amazing ad.
What do you guys think? Do you feel like advertisers target women in this way more than they do men?
