virtual women May 14, 2007

Someone a while back posted a link to Ms. Dewey, which is an online search engine with a woman named Ms. Dewey who reacts to what you type in, played by actress Janina Gavankar.  It’s kind of weird and obectifying and totally all about the male gaze.  Well, after surfing the internet for a bit, I came upon something even worse: Virtual Bartender 1 and Virtual Bartender 2.  You can place random orders to these ‘beer girls’ and they will act really suggestive (pre-filmed) in front of the camera.

What I kind find of odd about Ms. Dewey and Virtual Bartender is that although they’re all about the male gaze, they’re also about interaction, of sorts, with these virtual women.  But I guess since we’re so separated from them, they’re still just performing, not actually responding and interacting with us.

And I thought Ms. Dewey was bad! I can’t believe how ridiculous these girls look. Something is wrong with the sound on my computer, so I watched them without any audio and couldn’t help but laugh at their facial expressions and body motions. I wonder just how effective these ad campaigns are…
