Not really doing it for me...

Am I the only one creeped out by the sexualization of the Green M&M in the animated M&M ads?

Aside from the obvious (it's an M&M), does the female gender assignment automatically equate to sexiness? And, for the love of mike, wasn't there another way to pitch these fancy-type "premium" M&M's?

And if I'm this creeped out, doesn't it really mean there's someone out there who likes Ms. Green a little too much?

Aren't Ms. Pac Man and Smurfette pioneers in this sort of thing? Slap some heels on them and all the sudden it's va-va voom.

For some reason, this didn't bother me as a kid, but like you, I now find the sexy-lady M&M is a bit creepy. Partially because she's eating M&Ms, though. She's a maneater.
