Marketers Make Mayhem

So, I am off-topic yet again, but this is too much for me to take!
My husband brought this article to my attention after viewing a certain commercial.
The article discusses how a little boy, who admittedly has had other disciplinary notices already, was suspended for sexual harassment because he sang the lyrics to "I'm Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO at a girl in his school on more than one occasion.

To the morons who are in charge of putting a note in his "permanent record" claiming he is sexually harassing this girl I submit the following evidence to the idiocy of your judgement: (Madagascar 3 Trailer)

AND (M & M's Superbowl Commercial)

AND (Elmo's LMFAO parody on Sesame Street, "I'm Elmo and I Know It")


Young children are being marketed to using this tune both with and without the original lyrics. Most kids that young have NO idea what "I'm Sexy and I Know It" really means, they are just parroting adults and the things they see in our larger culture. And yet, the adults in charge refuse to use common sense not to use these things in marketing and THEN the adults in the school system failed to handle the situation in a more appropriate manner.

Sorry. Rant Over. :)
