V for venting. D for duh.

Hey there, Vagisil-

I neither need nor want your products, but when I saw your brilliant and (one can only assume) award-winning commercial the other day I made a few observations I would like to share:

* Using images of a blowfish and a porcupine to represent "itch" whilst you discuss "itch"- well, you go ahead and give Barry McDouchenbach in the writing department a big fat bonus. This guy is a genius. And that OTHER subtle thing he did- you know, the skunk and the lobster that, lo and behold, represented "stink"? Not since "Earnest Goes to Camp" have I seen such gorgeous imagery and subtle nuances. Beautiful, I tell you- just beautiful.

* And you know the part, at the end, where the women are smiling as if they had just discovered fat-free potato chips that don't cause anal seepage?
No one, and I mean NO. ONE. is that happy about their pooner- no matter how itch and stink free it may be. Those women look like you slipped them some acid and put them in a field of flowers with frolicking puppies, unicorns and teddy bears.

I find your commercial to be both hilarious and insulting. You have demeaned blowfish for the last time, I tell you.

And HOW did you know my pet name for know?
Lady Lobsterskunk is not amused.


Oh, and my favorite Google search thus far that landed some poor unsuspecting & gaseous person squarely in my blog:

"tied up farting"

hey there- Mr. or Ms. Farter- welcome! It seems you are, at long last, home.

Runners up:
"Good things about klonopin"
"taming for wild squirrels"
"moms smelly knickers"
"man in my bed sweat smell"

I haven't had the pleasure of seeing this one yet, but when I do, I will send the TV a hearty raspberry with the hope that the Marketing Genius feels a fine spray on the back of his neck.

How have I missed this?

A lobster? Seriously? I hate to see the girls Mr. McDouchenbach has been dating.

No kidding, SK!


Is this on youtube?

Whiskeymarie said...

I looked.
Alas- no you tube, yet.

I love the word "pooner." It cracks me up every damn time.

abbersnail said...

I adore you. This made me laugh out loud. Well done!

Man, upload it to youtube for our viewing pleasure. And Lady Lobsterskunk? *geeks out*

You know Barry McDouchenbach just had anal sex for the first time. It's why the ladies are so happy.

I just had the pleasure of viewing this commercial this past Saturday while over at my mother's house. We both cracked up at this marketing masterpiece.
Your comments have me rolling!

I have yet to see this commercial either. I'm saddened!

Tell me , is it really possible to make a good douche/tampon/vagisil/pad/ commercial ? My fave : the pad commercial where the woman uses a pad to clog up dams.

Ok, I so had to laugh at pooner. Thats a new one for me. I prefer coochie myself. I think you should do a post on names for a gals privates. Cuz somehow , WM, if anyone could do it- you could.

They have commercials for Vagisil?

I think the tampon/pad commercials are bad enough.

Rebecca said...

oh - hope that commercial comes on downunda!!! hilarious.

I saw the offending commercial last night. Honestly, my mouth dropped open. Who is this marketed to? What woman in her right mind would see this and dash off to the drug store to purchase such an insulting product? And besides, itchy plus smelly is a cry for serious anti-fungals, not perfume. What is wrong with these people?
