My New Icon!

It makes me very happy.

It is full of WIN.

Found here and I thank lijuun for directing me to it. It makes me LOL every time she uses it.

Question for my flist: Does anyone else find it puzzling that Cialis uses a couple in separate bathtubs in the great outdoors as their logo in their TV commercials? I mean, what exactly are they trying to say? Why are the people in bathtubs outside? Why are they separate tubs? What in the world does it have to do with ED? What does it all mean?

    I’ve always wondered that about the outside bathtubs as well o__o …straaaaaange.

  • ruthette says:

    My brother-in-law HATES that commercial!

  • DT says:

    I find it truly baffling.

  • DT says:

    I hate all those ED commercials. Especially the VIagra one with the Viva Las Vegas song, because it gets stuck in my head.
    A commercial I love for completely different reasons is the Avodart prostate med commercial. Because it has the best side effect warnings, “Women should not use or HANDLE Avodart…” It reminds me of Happy Fun Ball.

    Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball. (originally an SNL bit, if you never caught it before.)

  • ruthette says:

    Wow, I haven’t seen either of those.

  • ruthette says:

    Super Happy Fun Ball = WIN.

    I think the Cialis people have achieved their goal – you remember the commercial and the product. That’s really all that is important from a marketing perspective. Sense is optional.

  • DT says:

    lol you could be right. As I lie awake all night puzzling over WHY THEY HAVE BATHTUBS in their commercial, I guess it does keep their product at the forefront of my mind. Even if we have no… erm.. need of it.

  • DT says:

    Super Happy Fun Ball is my favorite fake commercial from circa 80’s SNL. I wish they would have the real one on YouTube. But NBC is all militant about allowing their skits on YouTube.

    Yay! We’re twins! 🙂
    Super Happy Fun Ball rocks, but I did always wonder about those two crazy kids in the his-‘n-hers bathtubs. How did the tubs come to be outside? Did they drag them out there? How did they fill them? It doesn’t seem possible that they could get hot water out there.
    I think the man doesn’t need Cialis. He’s probably just suffering from the effects of hauling around the tubs and sitting in cold water.

  • DT says:

    That must be it. Dragging a heavy cast iron and porcelain claw foot tub or two to the edge of the Grand Canyon would, I think, put a damper in any man’s libido. And water ain’t light by any means. “A pint’s a pound the world around” after all.

  • hannahsarah says:

    Every time someone on LJ snarks about pro ana sites and people with eating disorders it cracks me up because they keep calling it “ED”.

  • bojojoti says:

    Wouldn’t it be more exciting to have just one tub?

  • DT says:

    My point exactly. How do separate huge tubs speak to togetherness? Of course, a single tub could be too racy for American audiences… But consider what the commercial is about! Are they going all prudish in the end?
    I spend waaay too much thought on this.
