True - in this day and age when girls have such low self-esteem and are constantly trying to live up to those images of models they see in the magazines, here comes the new sun maid girl, just one more change to validate that sort of thinking - you need to be thin to be beautiful. Like I noticed before - they made her prettier and thinner. Should have updated her previous look without making her look like a new person all together. Thanks prettydark for opening my eyes and re-evaluating :-)
I like the new one..ppl need to get over themselves and get ready for change. change happens everyday and ppl just want to pick stupid fights over change when it's going to happen whether they like it or not.
He can probably afford hair plugs by now and a nice white suit or something. Get a little bling goin too! Aunt Jemima needs to let her hair down for a change - take that kerchief off her head and maybe get a new dress. Don't changer her outright just a small makeover :-)
People don't necessarily seem to mind when a company retires an icon, or features it less prominently, but a lot don't like to seem these images changed. Maybe it makes business sense to keep a "character" and just modernize it; but it kind of bugs me that so many people seem to think we have to see "ourselves" (modern-day people) in something like the raisin girl. The mentality that these old, classic, "art pieces", should change with the times is kind of like expecting the Mona Lisa get with the fashion times, lighten up a little, and consider losing a few pounds.
There's a reason classics turn into classics. Then, though, in fairness to the Sunmaid people, I've been known to buy Dole raisins just because clean, fresh-looking, box makes me feel as if the raisins are fresher.
