Pass the Brain Bleach

Have you been lucky enough to see the new "Viva Viagra" commercial? If not, sing Elvis' "Viva Las Vegas" in your head. Now substitute "Viagra" for "Las Vegas". I hate television.

Yes. I saw that today. Had the same thought. Ugh. There they go, with their huge grins, ruining a perfectly good song. Damn.

What about the new one for EPT where the voice over says,"It's the easiest thing you'll ever pee on", and a stream of water comes flying across the screen?

I saw it this morning getting ready for work. I actually stopped and stared at the TV. I think this is a clear indication society is CTD.

I am no longer surprised at what they'll show in a TV commerical.

Or how they would continue to defile the King's legacy.

(Though he did do a lot himself ...)

I'm a major fan of the late and great EP. I cannot believe they ever got permission to twist one of his most famous and most popular tunes. I also hate television:-)

I hate pharma ads. Smarmy bastards.

Lisa, the pregnancy test one actually says something about it being the most advanced technology you will ever pee on. And yeah, that's a disturbing one. (I found out yesterday those Dollar Tree tests work just fine, but I digress.)

I've only seen the Viagra commercial once, thank God. I was sitting there and heard the song and looked up thinking "Why the hell are they doing a bluegrass version of Viva Las Vegas?"

And then they got to the money shot.

That was almost as disturbing as listening to my father-in-law complain over dinner that his doctor refused to give him a Viagra prescription because of his heart issues.

There's something about a bunch of guys singing about about an erection pill that makes my skin crawl.
