Pretty Simple "Criminal Case: Pacific Bay" (2017) 1:00 (USA)

At first I was all "oh great, women are all running for something-- what is it a sale, har har har. You know, because we've seen that trope a few hundred times in advertising. But then they kept running to a darkened warehouse. And they got out their flashlights and then they spotted a guy and chased him up on the roof. And then the voiceover says "a bad city needs good detectives." And then I'm like "huh?"
Then I read that over eighty percent of the fifty million Criminal Case players in the US are women between the ages of thirty and fifty-five. Fair enough. But objectively speaking as someone who was not privy to the research until a few minutes ago, watching this ad was a bit confusing.
