The Boost Mobile Commercial Uses Armpit Hair to Say Hidden Cell Phone Fees Are Wrong

The Boost Mobile Armpit Hair Commercial: Huh?

I get the main point of this commercial: that it's wrong for cell phone companies to charge hidden fees, sure. But why exactly is waist-length female armpit hair used to make this point? Are we supposed to be grossed out? Think it's "wrong," like the woman asks? I just think it's weird. Of course, it's not my first time being completely flummoxed by a tech ad.

I guess it's supposed to be mimicking the phone companies - they do what they want to do, right? But that doesn't make it "right"...just like the woman's armpit hair. Sure, equal rights for women means we shouldn't HAVE to shave...but her exaggerated armpit hair would be the result of that. Just because we don't HAVE to, at some point - it's just not "right". I think that's what they're getting at...but the whole metaphor is just a little over the top.
