Air New Zealand cougar video: fun or offensive?

22 January 2010

Here we are again – the old fun or offensive debate. This time it centres round an Air New Zealand advert which is causing quite a storm in it’s homeland at the moment.

The video depicts a ‘pack’ of Cougars out ‘hunting’ young men. Air New Zealand say that it's meant to be “light hearted”, but its opponents have called it offensive – both to the women, and the men.

What do you think – fun or offensive? Would it be funny if the roles were reversed? Has the ‘Cougar’ joke gone too far?
