How to hide porn from your wife

I was checking OrbusMax today and came across this new video which appears to be an ad for a new Microsoft browser. While it's likely better than Vista, which cheered me up, and also very funny (though with multiple pukings, it won't be for everyone), I found the overall message to be jarring. Essentially, the ad is saying, "we have a feature that will enable you to browse in private so your wife won't see the vomit-inducing porn that you enjoy and she'll be happy you're using the product."

I rather suspect real wives would prefer men resist should they have the desire to look at vomit-inducing porn, because odds are, it will change how the men look at their wives. Like I said, the ad is very funny, but I couldn't help but think it's a strange culture we're in when this kind of thing is normalized to this point.

Here are the other ads for the browser from the new promotional site. The S.H.Y.N.E.S.S. one is fairly funny, the rest seem to fall a bit flat.

On an unrelated note, I was recently asked, "whatever happened to Dean Cain from the "Lois and Clark" show? That mystery is now solved.

UPDATE: Looks like Microsoft has pulled the ad!!
