Cheese spread company Kerry LowLow has created a video called “Adland Gal” that mocks the cliched women we see in diet commercials. On its Facebook page, the company questions the stereotypes we’re exposed to on TV, saying: “What is it with food ads aimed at women? Why do they bombard us with cliches? Why do they presume that all women have a negative relationship with food?”

The tongue-in-cheek video shows the three types of women often found in commercials when it’s advertising low-fat foods, for example the ‘Smug Gal,’ the ‘Ditzy Gal,’ and the ‘Muffin Gal.’
