The second stereotype is that a girl was playing the teacher’s role, this is based on the fact that many teachers throughout the years have been women. But this stereotype doesn't have any specific abilities connected to it. When we made a research with the help of our audience consisting 22 students, we saw that 13 found one stereotype, 6 found two stereotypes and only 3 found zero. When we asked the group of people who just found one, what kind of stereotype they found, they answered “the one with the messy boy”. This shows us that a messy boy is a more obvious stereotype than the female teacher. The last thing we are going to mention is why we don’t have any objectifyings. We think that it is not suitable to have objectifying connected to the commercial because it’s often very offensive against one of the
