It's pretty obvious they're not doing it maliciously so don't get your panties in a twist.

@Sh00rs1gn
Obviously not but if this is allowed they'll be far worst ones in future..

I'm not-easily-genderly-offended sort of person! ;-) i watch Red Dwarf and bloody Top Gear lol :)

the main problem for me it isn't cause it wasn't funny it just gave more reason to make more retarded adverts like this and such race rows to come

I still think the easiest way to put this advert into context is:

If you made an advert for the reversing aid systems in cars and used the tag line 'So easy even a woman can do it', There would be an uproar for enforcing a negative stereotype. Just in the way that this is offensive implying that men aren't able to clean properly, which by and large isn't the case.

Sure only 500 people complained. But i can almost be certain that you could stick a few more zeros on the end of that for people who took the advert in bad taste.

So what if there was an advert about how crap women are at driving. A car ad saying "so easy to drive even a woman could do it" ??? There would be a huge uproar, even if it was light hearted and meant as a joke.

I'm not an easily offended person, I watch a lot of South Park, that should give you an idea. And while I see the funny side of it, I mean after all and I know this has been said a number of times already: It's just an advert and I have seen a lot worse out there thanks to the internet and all those video sharing sites.
But say you swapped the roles over, I doubt that that the advert would have even left the idea room.
