Subliminal Advertising?

heineken.jpgIt’s common knowledge that Light beers are typically marketed to women, so when Heineken (known notoriously for their slogan “Don’t Touch my Heinie!”) released Heineken Light, naturally their target market followed suit.

I hate to say it, but I feel emasculated by a beer.
