Since the beginning of March, Norwegian television network NRK has been broadcasting “Piip-Show”, a 24/7 online stream that follows the lives of “a short tempered nuthatch, a blue tit with the memory of a gold fish, a happy-go-lucky great tit, and a depressed bullfinch.”
This is the same station that aired seven-hour train rides, minute-by-minute knitting, and other “slow TV” experiments that have become a Norwegian specialty.

Eat snickers, prevent yourself from unwittingly respecting women.

That’s probably the most anti-climatic way to make an advertisement. Seriously, those guys were so sweet and that’s the fucking joke. Some of those women were pleasantly surprised: imagine to see this ad and realise that Snickers used something so true and well-written as a joke. I don’t fucking care that those guys are actors: they have a damn point. 

Instead, Snickers decide to go with this mindset: “look at these sweet and polite guys, isn’t that just sooo unrealistic? Men aren’t supposed to do that when they see a hot woman: giving her a sincere and respectful compliment, that’s waaay too silly, right?”. Go fuck yourself, Snickers.
