Help AdRespect in its mission with a tax-deductible donation!

A group of businessmen and businesswomen are gathered around the table as the boss gives a pep talk prior to a meeting. He says, "Oh and Wilson, I'm awfully sorry the airline lost your luggage. Good thing you and Brenda are the same size."

It is now revealed he's wearing a frilly blouse loaned to him. Brenda helpfully adds, "It goes great with your eyes" -- despite it being a dusty pink color.

Then the boss asks , "Is that silk?" Wilson jovially responds, "It's actually a poly blend." Then his male colleague compliments, "It's very slimming." Wilson retorts with confidence, "Oh, I'm working this."

The announcer says, "Wake up on the bright side at La Quinta Inns & Suites."

This ad does a great job of playing with gender roles without demeaning.
