Ever see that commercial where all the women show their bellys?

It's a commercial for a prescription drug. I forget the name of the drug, but it must be targeted toward women.

Anyway, it starts out with close-ups of various women who have lifted up their shirts to display their bellys.

As it continues, we see all the women's faces.
So there is a brunette in a blue shirt on that commercial that just drives me crazy. (in a good way)

Anybody know the commercial I'm talkin about?
Anybody else think this woman is attractive?

Isn't that the commercial for Irritable Bowel Syndrome? But they only call it "IBS"-- let's not hip it up too much.

What I want to know is why they have a drug for new drug for IBS (nothing else works) and only women can use it? That sucks. I had no idea that women's bowels worked any differently than men's.

Well like I said, I never paid attention to what was actually being advertised. I always just wait for the cute brunette.

I don't think it was for irritable bowel syndrome, but it was for something like that.

Are you absolutely sure you weren't thinking of the Krystal commercial where the six women at the end lift up their shirts? "The Krystal diet gives me these ... Whoo!...Errrrr!...Yeah!"

It was for IBS with constipation.

God that ad makes me feel ill. Not as bad as the bellybuttons singing "I'm coming out" from a few years back, but still pretty bad.

Just saw the commercial again.

They have the ad there. I think there's like 3 brunettes with blue shirts in that ad and I don't find any of them that attractive. Oh well, different strokes...

I've seen the commercial, but I don't recall the particular female you are talking about.



Stupid brainwashing commercials.

Why don't the words say who they are or how they feel? Words such as Slut, Overworked, Underapperciated, Liar, Theif, Gossip, etc.

my hubby cringes when that commercial comes on! It grosses him out immensely andhe can't watch. But really, why do we need to advertise women's issues with IBS? SO nasty, I can't get past how gross the commercial is to get a look at the women's faces.

I laugh at how the women are supposed to be "bloated" and they all have flat tummies.

There is one tummy that is not quite as "buff" that always appears when they talk about being bloated. She's still skinny but you can just tell the casting diector was like-- "let's use her-- she's 'fatter' than the others".
