Citrus and Ginger Ad: Naughty or Nice?

Advertisements have been posted since magazines made their way into mainstream society during the early 1880s. When we flip through a magazine, we can still expect to find more than a fair share of them today. We may agree that some ads have definite flair and may use clever puns. We understand what it means. Other advertisements are open to interpretation.
The photo to the left shows an advertisement for Downy’s new Citrus Ginger fabric softener submitted to us by Adrianna Moore, one of our readers. This was an ad featured in the September 2011 US edition of Cosmopolitan magazine.

I can't put my finger on it, but as a ginger I was bothered by this ad... If I figure out why I'll make it known to the community, but for now I'll just be happy with my unreasonable rage.
