From back in June. Here’s the original US version, from April 2005:
This blog being what it is, my first thought was that many
men people really do think that dealing with sexual harassment just requires a simple phone call to HR. So, however funny, ultimately these videos just perpetuate that dismissive stereotype.
But I already made that point last year, about a similar joke in a popular newspaper cartoon, so I don’t really need to repeat it here. Instead, it’s more interesting to compare the 2 versions of the video.
For instance, naturally the Korean version doesn’t begin with:
“…businesses are filled with working women, with corresponding breasts and vaginas. As a man, you want to have sex with ALL of them.”
And the US version, again just as naturally, doesn’t feature a scene in a women’s toilet.
What do you think of them? Any other (cultural) differences you can think of?
