The Lost Summer’s Eve “Hail To The V” Asian Vagina Reel

August 2nd, 2011 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

You know those Summer’s Eve commercials that created quite a stir recently? The ones that seemed to imply all women’s vadges are dirty but most especially those of women of color?

Here’s the “black version”:

And the “Latina version”:

But there was no Asian version. Which left me with all sorts of confused feelings. Like, Hey, are our vadges not dirty, too? Wait, I didn’t just say that. But it feels bad to be left out! No, no, it doesn’t. What I mean is…I just really really want to see what a stereotypical Asian vadge sounds like? Okay?

And then, I got my wish*:

The only thing missing from this reel is a sideways joke. Other than that, it’s perfect.

*not an official Summer’s Eve commercial, BTW

    I totally thought the same thing upon first watching it. Also, at the end, they should have panned back to reveal none other than a white woman doing the vagina puppeteering.

    Vagina puppeteering. The lost Jim Henson special.

    these don’t bother me on principle… there’s nothing wrong (at least by advertising standards) with going after a specific demographic.

    but it’s bothersome that they’ve basically used caricatures of women of color to appeal to real women of color. it’s not the “what” that’s offensive, it’s the “how much.”

    also the concept of a talking vagina terrifies me.

    i like this attempt. but the animated background really MAKES the commercial, you know? can you imagine: a gong intro, red fire breathing dragon, sezchuan hot pot, in comes summer’s eve, tibetan mountain tops, lotus flower, happy buddha. Hail to the V… I wish i have the time and talent to make this happen. but alas…
