Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, the boy is the focal point of the ad.
English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. 
This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. 
A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. 
Here, I’ll make you a better ad.

Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees this and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. 

y’all jerks need to take a few design courses, good on you urulokid for bringin’ forth the knowledge

Thankyou!

I’m also side eyeing them putting the footnote in white without a drop shadow or SOMETHING to make it stand out. It’s a billboard for goodnessakes! Who the heck is going to see that tiny line of text while driving down the highway? The least they could’ve done was put it on top of the grey so it would stand out instead of on the kids. That’s intro to graphic design. 

>better ad
nah, son, an ad almost by definition has the intent to manipulate you
this is an insanely well designed ad
sure it’s tryin to trick you, but it’s heart is in the right place (so is it’s brain). if you’re lookin for sincerity in an advertisement, I got bad news for you, friend

The character assassination begins. His body’s not even cold yet and white America is hard at work making the victim the villain and soothing itself back to sleep with comforting narratives.

Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

What if “Gravity Falls” is an anime

Based and audio taken from the show “Gravity Falls” by Disney.
(Episode: Golf War)

A bit effects-heavy, and some of the poses stay still a little too long, but otherwise very well-done! The cleanup here is impeccable, and the lighting for the Lightning came off great.

that’s p good, buT THAT’S NOT A TACO
