Gender remixer will inspire all emotions simultaneously

So, here's an excellent thing that didn't exist, but now does, and the world is a better place. The Gender Remixer allows you to combine highly gendered advertisements aimed at girls and boys. You get the video from one and the audio from the other.

The experience is disorienting, enlightening, infuriating, and other stuff, all at the same time. The thing that surprised me most was how much I wanted to buy the hypothetical toys that my brain constructed during the experience.

Check it out!

  1. I showed this to my ANTH 101 class last spring (this link is to an updated version, I think?). Anyway, the students weren't terribly impressed, which surprised me.

  2. Yes, I think it must be an updated version, which would explain why they seem to be leading with "HTML5 Version." I had never seen it before now.

    That really surprises me, too. I feel like I should say something like "kids these days," and walk away shaking my head.
