Those Yiayia commercials make me laugh every time. Announcer asks cute girl or pussyboy guy what they’re doing, lets them get part of a sentence out, then essentially interrupts them with “shut up bitch, let’s hear what Yiayia has to say”. Yiayia then drops a truth bomb, leaving our modern day liberal progressive speechless….
Funny as hell. I know it’s supposed to be “oh hahaha look at the throwback judgmental old biddy, so behind the times, so ancient, so irrelevant”. But people know it’s true, down deep, and they love someone who is blunt and direct.
And that’s why it works.
Sure, there is an element of in women wanting to be told what is right and what is wrong by a strong hand; be it a man or yiayia (Greek for Grandmother). The women in the commercials have their “submission bone” tickled for a second. In the olden days, it would have been tickled for more than a second.
So, yes, women do know what is right and wrong. But, to compete with other women, to go the fun path, to blah-blah they just do what they feel.
What I would really like to see is commercials where the women are in some unhappy situation (e.g. pumped and dumped, 35 and with no prospects) with Yiayia providing some commentary
