Is this Snickers viral stunt funny or actually very insulting to both men and women?

Canberra – "Hey you in the white top…have yourself a lovely day," one construction shouts to an unsuspecting woman passing him on the street.

The expression of shock on her face can only be attributed to the fact that the worker gave her a compliment rather than a sexist comment.

In their latest viral stunt, Snickers paired up with Aussie builders to call out empowering statements to unsuspecting female members of the public.

The video shows some pretty amazing reactions and seems like a great campaign. But then it all goes horribly wrong when the catch phrase pops up at the end; "You’re not you when you are hungry".

Wait…so are they saying..."eat a Snicker and become sexist again?"

Just when we thought that they finally got it right. Is this stunt funny or actually insulting to both men and women?
