Mindy's got Nationwide Issues
1. The idea that a good-looking woman could be invisible is more than a little absurd on its face. And this woman is good-looking. Her personality? Revolting. Her looks? Not an issue at all.
1(a) could it be that Mindy has been "invisible" because her chip-on-her-shoulder personality is so caustic, a lot of people just try to screen her out and pretend she isn't there? You know, as kind of a defensive measure?
2. Try to imagine this commercial with a man in the title role. Can't, can you? Maybe that's because it's still acceptable to show women doing things like gorging on ice cream and getting bent out of shape at the idea of being ignored and even touching someone without asking first. But if this commercial featured a man touching a female stranger and then copping an attitude when called on it- nope, sorry. Can't see that happening.
