Now, on to the commentary. Haven’t you ever seen a commercial and your jaw just dropped open? You were thinking: “You have to be kidding me?!” This week, I’m going to cover the somewhat embarrassing topic of various personal care items and the ridiculous lengths advertisers will go to in order to transfer money from your wallet to their bank account.
Here are three that have caught my attention:
Feminine care product advertisements in general- why are the women always so happy? Even the new commercial- the one that makes fun of the old “dancing on the beach, smiling softly, wind blowing through the hair” advertisements- shows happy women! Trust me, no woman is going to choose what feminine care products to purchase based on a commercial, no matter how happy the women look.
I saw an ED pump advertisement claiming that it was covered by Medicare. Honestly, I don’t care enough to research this, but did find the site online, again with the claim that it was covered by Medicare. You have got to be kidding me!?!
I was watching a show the other day and saw a Vagisil commercial come on. The actress actually said: “I found out the hard way that not all feminine washes get rid of odor.”
First of all, should someone actually be suffering from this problem, are commercials going to be their source of information? Uh, shouldn’t you see a doctor or something?
Secondly, what the hell is the hard way?......I cannot even begin to guess.
Come to think of it, what is the easy way?
