Quick Hit: Gendered advertising remixer

Ever wanted to see a crib playset for My Little Ponies advertised as a GI Joe command center? Then Gendered Adversiting Remixer is the place for you. This is more outright feminism than geek feminism, I realise, but I found it disturbingly entertaining and wanted to share.

It lets you select advertisements and show the audio for one while playing the video for the other. Divide them up along gender lines and… well, it’s kind of disturbing but fascinating how “well” the clips line up. Go play with it a bit and you’ll see what I mean.

About terriko

Terri has a PhD in horribleness, assuming we can all agree that web security is kind of horrible. She stopped working on skynet (err, automated program repair and AI) before robots from the future came to kill her and got a job in open source, which at least sounds safer. Now, she gets paid to break things and tell people they're wrong, and maybe help fix things so that people won't agree so readily with the first sentence of this bio in the future. Terri writes/tweets under the name terriko, enjoys making things and mentoring others and has a plain ol' home page at http://terri.toybox.ca.
