If you've ever watched an afternoon talk show or a prime-time soap, you've seen loads of commercials hawking the latest innovations in toaster pastries, mop technology and deodorizing spray.

Some of them are innocuous, some of them are obnoxious (hello, ShamWow!) but some are just downright offensive. From women who do laundry in heels to the play date where giddy moms compulsively eat chips, TV spots still convey images that we'd think would be gone by the 21st century. (Namely, that we're supposed to spend all our time in the kitchen.)

Kelly Ripa is a talk show host, actress and married mother. But her myriad endorsements, like this Electrolux spot, tend to portray her as some kind of bionic housewife. Sure, she can probably mix a batter and glaze a cake, but balancing bowl of pudding on her stiletto? Retro and unsanitary.
