"Use our product and hot women will want to DO you"

There's been a new resurgance of clever ads depicting some dorky guy having hot women fall over themselves to get on him all because he uses some product ever since the Axe Body Spray ads. Tag and Old Spice both copied the theme.

I've been seeing this theme carry into other types of products lately though... Today I saw an ad for Gain laundry detergent pulling the same crap - average looking guy doing his laundry with Gain gets hot women wanting his package. It's been a common sales technique since forever, but when is this resurfaced trend gonna stop? "Oooh.. you cleaned your toilet with the Toilet Wand - please pee in my butt"

It'll stop once commercials get more Bravo-ish.

Don't forget that using MovieFone makes you attractive to beautiful women.

That net hosting commercial, OLM, is like that too. I only see it on G4/TechTV though.

I would much rather see those than ugly women on AOL commercials.

I'd rather see a "Tiny House" channel.

Me too. I remember when a friend & I first saw that & that it was a real show, then found out it wasn't. I think that would be a funny show & I don't normally watch "reality tv".

When the axe commercials came out, I thought they were kind of funny. I used to tease my nephew because he wears it.

The commercial that I thought was ridiculous was the Uncle Ben commercial. Oh yes, rice is so sexy.

I've used Axe and have yet to get laid because of it. I smell a class action lawsuit.

Great. Now Adult Friend Finder is jumping into it too. They should just focus on the product.

I'm sticking with my Hai Karate.


So far I haven't had to beat off beautiful women, but there has been some beating off going on.

That's actually a good idea. If you just cleaned the toilet, you wouldn't want to dirty it up again, plus you get the added fun of peeing in someones butt. It's a win-win!

Peeing on someone's face is much more relaxing. The splatter is very soothing.
