M&M's Commercial

Humorous, perhaps, but it's worth noting the boundaries our advertisers are pushing.  I'm annoyed and a little soiled by having seen this one, but I wonder what the message might be to a child in the developmental years.  I doubt it's anything I'd want my child to have to deal with early on.  The comment (inserted in the picture) says it rather well.

Much of the media, from reality shows to neuromarketing, is sexually bent, a disappointing byproduct of ... what? The passing of years? Or the decline of a culture.  It has happened before. Figured out your own path yet?

Other comments on the commercial:
Not only is this not funny, it's blatantly offense. What were the advertisers thinking?
