Happy Tuesday, Swimwear and Lingerie Fans.

For Totally Retro Tuesday, we have a fabulously peculiar commercial from Daisy Fresh, with the oddest Canadian bent I’ve ever seen!

Let’s just get those totally neato, super advanced, visual effects out of the way first, shall we?

Amazing how they were able to get the mostly nekkid, except for their Daisyfresh Bras, women to just float in front of the bicycle riders like that! I wonder if they got danger pay? That one bike rider, with the hat, clearly isn’t in control of her ride… who wears a hat like that bike riding anyway?

Hey, remember the last time you went biking with your girl friends and your shirt was unbuttoned down to your navel to show off your fabulous bra? Yah… me too, good times! Then we went back to some British guy’s place and showed him our other truly Canadian looks {nudge nudge, wink wink} , had a big, girly, pillow fight and all laughed in a really creepily patronizing way!

Sleepover with the girls.... such innocent bullying fun!

You know, I never feel more “all woman” than when I’m listening to random birds tweeting, in a painfully obvious over-dub of a bizarre video of women bike riding, that has absolutely nothing to do with bras!

Pardon my garters, I'm just feeling 'all woman'  while riding my bike

Yup, do you supposed they’re all drunk and that’s why they can’t ride in a straight line or is it meant to be more girly and whimsical with them careening all over the road like a bunch of dorks? What are they saying? Women can’t steer a bike? Insulting much? Thank goodness the creepy guy with the car picked them up!

We're only drunk 'cause the Brit told us to be... said it was truly Canadian!

{Public service announcement…where the heck were their helmets??? OMG, that was sooooo dangerous, then they go and accept a ride with a stranger and litter the beautiful countryside with their bikes, I’m losing count of all the inappropriate messages here!}

Thank heavens it’s the ’70’s and nothing bad ever happens when you’re a woman just letting your freedom flag fly!

{cough, serial killers…Bundy, Dahmer, Gacy, Berkowitz…cough, cough}

Sure they may be cute, drive cool cars or even have a British accent.... but don't trust 'em...They're just hunting for that truly 'Canadian' look!

Have you ever noticed that Canadians will buy anything, provided it’s presented by a person with either a British or Australian accent? Kinda annoying really.

Why are we soooo easily led?

Only if a British accent tells her she can!

For example, had a Canadian tried to participate in this comedy sketch, they would have heard the British accent when the Pet-shop Owner said the parrot was still sleeping. The poor, hapless Canadian would then have said “Oh! Okay, so sorry to have bothered you!”, apologized for annoying the shopkeeper, walked out and we wouldn’t have had the humourous genius of the Dead Parrot Sketch.

{Monty Python Rocks! Oh geez… I hope I don’t adore them just because of the accents… nah, they totally rock either way!}

I love that the man in the car, ogling the ladies in their completely covered up Daisyfresh bras, says, “That’s a really beautiful Canadian look.”

What the ‘F’ is THAT all about? He can’t see their bra’s so he can’t be talking about those, in which case, why should we care that the rest of their outfits are Canadian… make’s no sense at all!

Oh, but wait he said it in brit-speak, so it must make sense!

{Full Disclosure… I am Canadian and therefore completely susceptible to the power of the British accent}

Maybe he can see the super-imposed, mostly nekkid women and he’s really talking about that and not the obviously inebriated, biker chicks that are now clambering into his fancy schmancy car….

Which would actually explain his creepy laugh and talking to people who aren’t really there… Man, those Daisyfresh folk were kicking some Sixth Sense storylines around waaaaaay before M. Night Shyamalan came on the scene.

Well, colour me impressed. A Canadian company waaay ahead of it’s time! This commercial has layers…like an onion.

{Or maybe it’s just really lame… I could go either way on it…although there was a British accent, so it must be awesome, right?}

Cheers,

Maggie
