If Women's Roles in Ads Were Played by Men is a parody done by BuzzFeed Yellow that shows just how much sexism is still prominent in the media today. The hilarious video uses split screen techniques and replaces the females in original ads with men. The result is a side-by-side comparison as to just how ridiculous it looks when men role around the sand to promote a sandwich.

Some might argue that women are just naturally sexier than men, but this naturalization effect could just be because people are so used to women being portrayed this way. If Women's Roles in Ads Were Played by Men does a great job of bringing the sexist nature of most commercials to light.
