Tool with "pleased wife" guarantee

Black and Decker is in trouble.
"...[The Swedish] Ethical Council against Gender Discriminatory Advertising (ERK) slammed an advert that promised beauty treatments for the wives of men who bought its products...'Through this text, the council finds that (the company) conveyed an outdated view of gender roles in which women are expected to be placated with beauty treatments while men buy tools,' ERK said in its ruling."
Black & Decker said, in its defense, that it tried reversing the offer, but no one took them up on it.
