Not having it. Cure Auto Insurance is taking the heat after their "Whip It Out" 2021 Super Bowl ad — which has been deemed "tone deaf" by many Twitter users — after the commercial seemed to poke fun at sexual harassment claims in the workplace.
The 30-second clip began with a frustrated female worker who stormed into her boss' office, declaring: "Miss Davis, Tommy just brought me into his office and whipped out his opinion."
"I didn’t just whip it out — she was into it," Tommy blurted out in his defense, as he followed his co-worker into Davis' office. "Plus, I have a pretty big opinion."
"Tommy, not everyone in this office wants your opinion," Davis' scolded Tommy, which prompted him to bring up a past shared happy hour when Davis "begged" him for his opinion. The boss then noted that she had so many "margaritas" that she essentially would've taken anyone's "opinion" in the state she was in.
The commercial ended with a narrated voiceover that said: "We can’t protect your opinion — but we can protect your car."
After watching the controversial ad, viewers flooded Twitter to condemn Cure Auto Insurance and their choice of sexual harassment innuendo through sarcastic insults.
