Coca-Cola Uses Pin-Up Girls In Heinously Sexist Advert To Sell New Fairlife Milk

Coca-Cola have employed the trusty help of pin-up girls to help sell their new "premium milk product", Fairlife.

But rather than drinking the milk (as regular people do) these ladies are wearing it - or rather, appear to be bathed in it. They also, in true pin-up style, have erect nipples, exposed bottoms and suggestive facial expressions.

Yes, we appear to have been transported back to the 1950s. And it feels like hell.

Now what exactly pin-up girls have to do with milk is beyond me. Coca-Cola have tried (and failed) to explain the tedious link.

"VERY excited about all our sexy billboards that are promoting the launch – it’s just our way of showing the world how provocative milk can be!" they write in a recent blog post, before adding: "Oops, we got distracted by the pinup girls… that can happen!"

So far, so heinously sexist.

For a product that claims all kinds of nutritional benefits - 50% more natural protein and calcium, and half the sugars of regular milk - we're baffled as to why they chose to focus on women's appearance rather than a healthy lifestyle.

"Drink what she's wearing," reads one advert. "Better milk looks good on you," states another.

The product has employed the most overused and outdated canvas to sell products: women's bodies. Do people still buy this kind of outdated advertising? I bloody hope not.
