Real Or Not Real? The Ab-Hancer.

Published

on

What appears to be an ad for “The Ab Hancer” has been going viral on the web for a few weeks now. Sure, it’s pretty hysterical (and wrong)- But does it exist?

While the ad certainly looks like a legit low-end product, an internet search shows that while the image itself has made lots of rounds on the web, something’s a little fishy…

  • -This is the only shot ever seen online. On no sites do you see a different angle of the packaging, another side of the ‘box’ or any other advertising/marketing materials.

-Purchasing information is never listed for the product. How could a product getting this much buzz have no purchasing info?

-The product name has no trademark indication on the box.

-The web address www.abhancer.com leads to nowhere.

-The ‘product’ is not available on shopping aggregator sites like Google Shopping or even Amazon, which has pretty much everything.

My verdict? A funny person should have given himself some credit on the box … because this is just a clever parody. That said, if you’ve been looking for a shortcut this summer… consider yourself inspired!

The brand tackles old gender stereotypes with new versions of their 1950’s ads.

As part of International Women’s Day, Budweiser has adapted their own old ads, once portraying women as housewives serving their husbands and reworked them into a more modern point of view.

Appearing in the pages of The New York Times, Chicago Tribune or L.A. Times today, the ads still look like the colorful, retro pages of a newspaper from the 1950s, but instead of serving the beer, they’re enjoying it themselves.

Beyond commemorating International Women’s Day, the brand is also a partner with #SeeHer, an industry effort to improve how women are portrayed across all advertising.
