Why is hubby vacuuming during relaxed beer-and-pretzels hour? OCD? Submissive ritual with dominant mistress? Your guess is as good as the copywriter's!

Original ad here.

Reminds me of the Blatz jingle I often heard on the radio:

I'm from Milwaukee and I ought to know:
It's draft brewed Blatz beer, wherever you go.
Smoother and fresher, less filling that's clear,
Blatz is Milwaukee's finest beer

Check out his stylishly thin belt and tassel shoes; other times and tastes, for sure.

He's attempting motor skills while drunk to show he's not alcoholic. She's happy because she knows the route to the E.R. so well by now.

The ad was created by a team that a) was visionary enough to see the coming feminist movement or b) knew that guys could turn women on by vacuuming.

The marketing team discovered that Blatz beer was drunk more by women than by men and designed the ad in consequence. Also, the men get the following subconscious message; an available woman with food and drink is ready for you. Electrolux might have paid a part of the advertisement fees.

A vacuum cleaner is a centerpiece in the porn film "Debbie Does Dallas." Perhaps they are preparing for that particular usage of the appliance.
