Dove Lowers the Bar

Dove soap has a new commercial out. The words are sung to a tune I learned when I was a kid (although I know the dirty version of the song, what a surprise, & sadly, can't recall the real words)

Their version

Do your eyes sit wide
Does your nose turn to the side
Do your elbows kind of crinkle
Do your knees sort of wrinkle
Does your chest tend to freckle
Do you have a crooked smile

Do your eyes sit wide

Do your ears sort of wiggle
Does your hair make you giggle
Does your neck grow long
Do your hips sing a song

Do your ears hang low

the words Let Your Beauty Sing float on the screen at the end of the song, with a voice over saying
Dove & Walmart
find Real Beauty for Less.

Um... Is this Wal-Mart's way of acknowledging the POW website? The message I took from this:
Look, we know you have no sense of style. You've proven to us owning mirrors aren't a necessity, and *maybe* a six pack of Schlitz is more of a priority than self esteem dignity dental visits refinancing your home just to carry a Coach wallet. We're here for you *cough*ugly bastards*cough*

Now, drink the kool-aid.
