Explain This Commercial to Me

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vBNcQgkXEWE&hl=en_US&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vBNcQgkXEWE&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

What problem does Charmin think they've solved? How do you get little bits of toilet paper stuck to your ass? Or is this supposed to be a family-friendly metaphor for getting some stuck between your butt-cheeks? If so, is this a problem that occurs often enough that people want a toilet paper that's specifically designed not to have this problem? I mean, I've had it happen to me, but it's like a once a year thing?

What is going on here? I don't understand.

You're a guy. Why are you paying attention to toilet paper ads in the first place? They're not aimed at you. Go watch some beer commercials instead.

Filthy Americans needs to learn how to shave their asses, use baby wipes and install bidets.

I opened this thread assuming that it was going to be the Kia commercial with the hamsters. In case you were wondering, the message in that "damning yourself with faint praise" commercial is that driving a Kia is better than driving a toaster or a box.

Re: Explain This Commercial to Me

Have you seen Charmin Bears poop? They have six anuses (sp? never had to spell anus in plural before). It would make sense then to have six bits of Charmin on their asses.

When your product is the same as everyone else's, you have to make stuff up, to persuade people yours is better.

It's merely a commentary on contemporary mores.

Use Star Trek brand toilet paper. It's really good at circling Uranus and picking off Klingons.

Avoid the John Wayne brand toilet paper. It's rough and tough and won't take shit off nobody.

Re: Explain This Commercial to Me

That commercial is clearly targeted towards strippers. It kinda ruins the experience when you see bits of toilet paper clinging to the nether regions....

as you should know from your years at dvdtalk, quality strippers always use baby wipes to keep std's away...especially on a customers fingers.

It does cling, sometimes.

I stopped using Charmin a while back and just use recycled paper now.

And not that hippie Seventh Generation crap. That's like $8 a pack. The store brand is half the price, or less.
