He just does not get it! Reading into it, is this ad implying that someone can easily get away with saying remarks like those at work? On the other hand, perhaps it's implying that it's an innocent joke/ad not meant to be taken seriously. On another note, we can see some of the tag lines he says on the small props placed in front of him. There is also a miniature version of the billboard he points to towards the end.
