A spanking new YouTube take on “Jingle Bells” by a Canadian ad agency is being accused of being naughty, not nice — and “sexist pigs.”
In “Jingle Butts,” a two-and-a-half-minute video by the envelope-pushing creative company Zulu Alpha Kilo, Spanish percussionist Jorge Perez of the jazz-fusion band PATAX gives new meaning to hitting the skins.
Dressed in holiday green and a knit cap and flanked by two human cymbal stands, Perez uses four taut tushes as bongos to turn the beat around.
The booty-licious drum sets, each in tiny red thongs, are not dressed for winter. Two of the butts presumably belong to men, as a coda suggests. No matter, the cheeky campaign has drawn ire about being sexist.
“I really don’t understand this video at all. It’s 2015, almost 2016 and this is like a step back in time. Haven’t we come further than this? When are we going to stop objectifying women to this degree? And for a Christmas ad? Smh?” posted Joshua Smiley on Thursday.
The video got tens of thousands of views on YouTube in the first 24 hours it was posted.
Zulu Alpha Kilo noted on YouTube posting the agency is “equal bum opportunists. The video features both male and female models.” The company added that it “also made a generous donation to Colon Cancer Canada.”
Still, some viewers aren’t buying. “Lets put some guy slapping some women buts with a g string and saying that its for Colon Cancer… Right…?” added Bruno Macedo on Friday.
Butt of course.
