What is "Head-On"?

I've seen this commercial on TV a lot lately, but the commercial does not tell you what it is for. Here is a link to the commercial:

Is it for headaches? Is it sunscreen? Has anyone tried it? Does it keep your forehead attached to your face?

I don't know what it is, but with their subliminal advertising message I have to go out and buy one now.

All I know is you don't need a prescription, and you need to put it on your forehead. I'm going to buy some now.

Headache relief. Search for "headon" on drugstore.com

Just a guess, but I think you apply the stuff directly to the forehead.

I absolutely refuse to buy any product whose commercials are what gave me the headache in the first place.

It's better than the smiley dancey beach commercials that secretly emit herpes.

Head On was Vincent Chase's first big movie. It also starred Jessica Alba. I use headache powder and heavily caffeinated soft drinks to treat my headaches.

cheers,

Here is their new product:

I can't find a clip of the commercial, but it kinda goes like this:

Freedhem, hemmorhoid cream.
Freedhem, hemmorhoid cream.
Freedhem, hemmorhoid cream.

At least they don't repeat over and over again, "Freedhem, apply directly to the ass."

That parody is hilarious!

What is it with ALL of the commercials that play after game shows like "Jeopardy" anyway? They all look like the result of some late night brainstorm at the Chimps-R-Us ad agency, and produced on a budget of 4 bucks 25 cents.
