Amazon is promoting their Prime delivery service, boasting just one day to get what you want. Or in this case, what you NEED. Rapunzel isn’t waiting on a prince, she just needs a ladder.
The actress. The part of Rapunzel is played by Josephine Lawrence. She’s a relatively new actress to mainstream work, although Google says she died in 1978, so there’s that.
The music. The song playing in the background is Nicki Minaj “Feeling Myself.” I could only stomach about 15 seconds of the song, but if you are a daredevil, check out the full track here.
Audience response. There are quite a few YouTube comments criticizing its wokeness with Rapunzel being self-reliant and all. Most keenly point out that while she might not need a man, she DID need a delivery person, which definitely could’ve been a man. This delivery person also unpacked the ladder, extended it, and set it up for her descent from the castle. Because of this, the ad doesn’t quite hit the mark, although on the surface it’s fine, I guess.
I’m just a white man, but I miss the days of music (and relationships) like this.
The Prime ad doesn’t celebrate a kind, strong man, who “spends quality time with his kids…” Amazon appears to just be falling in line with the woke agenda that says if one man doesn’t treat you like an immortal goddess, YOU MUST HATE ALL MEN.
That address. Can I point out that a ladder tall enough to reach that window has got to be at least 50 feet tall? It might even be 60 feet! Amazon has a 60-ft ladder for two grand. Rapunzel must be doing well on OnlyFans, I guess.
Not to mention, since she has a smartphone, why doesn’t she just call the police to save her from kidnapping or —oh wait, trusting the police is not cool, my bad.
Also, I’ve driven deliveries for Amazon before and in Tennessee, there are addresses that are harder to get to than the remote castle in the commercial. Meaning you basically need a 4-wheeler, a life jacket, and to notify your next of kin because you may not make it out alive. Tip your delivery drivers, folks!
Thanks for stopping by…
