The Cialis commerical? The couple in separate tubs are having sex through osmosis...or virtual sex...or they both meditate and have an out of body sexual experience. "If you have an erection lasting for more than four hours, go blind, or exhibit stroke symptoms, call your doctor." Duh! Ya think?
Can you imagine if you walked into Burger King and the following was posted above the menu: Caution: eating here may cause the following:
*high cholestral and hardening of the arteries
*Mad cow disease
*an allergic reaction to MSG and nitrates that may require jump starting your heart and a tracheotomy
*a shriveled tongue and roof of mouth from the 4 days worth of salt we put in one buger
*choking on what appears to be a big hunk of gristle but is really a toenail
*Electrocution from faulty wiring in the restroom hand dryer
Would you eat there? These prescription ads and all their warnings are just the beginning!
I thought the guy with the stupid grin on his face was that Enzyte commercial. "A supplement for natural enhancement for the special part of a male's body.' His name is Bob and what a go getter he is after taking this drug for only a week!
Maybe I'm wrong. I get my male enhancement, erectile disfunction drugs all mixed up. I say take them all at once and see what happens! Maybe after getting their eye sight back, their pace maker regulated and the use of the right side of their body back...'Just hold me' won't sound so bad!
OMG I am laughing so hard right now...TY so much because I was having a horrible day...snowling like mad here today and I work as a tire sales person...so yeah im just a little tired. But this made my day.
I don't look at the inserts in meds either...if I did I would never take them. I made the mistake of looking at the Lyrica one. I read the whole blamed thing...the trials and all...wish I had not of done that LOL
Thanks again for the humor!!!!
The commercials are pretty goofy. I think my most favorite commercial right now is the baby that is doing the stock trading and he's talking to the camera when his cell phone rings and he says, "hey girl, can I hit you back later" OMG it is so funny to me!
I actually do read the inserts that come with medication. I always keep in mind that they are POSSIBLE side effects. This is helpful if you actually have a side effect. You will have an easier time tracking down what is causing the trouble or at least COULD be causing the trouble.
I was just thinking how I wish I was somewhere that I could sit at the window and watch it snow. It sounds so beautiful! Have a good evening!
That ad for Lyrica? They should beat that woman with a rubber mallet for about ten minutes, stick her arms in a beehive, THEN shoot the commerical.
Oh my, Donna you are too much! Thanks for the laughs!
I don't pay attention to the commercials anymore & I also throw away the med inserts without reading. It scared me too much when I did look at them before, so I've found it is easier to start a new drug if I ignore the warnings.
My sister and I had this same talk about the Lyrica commercials on a road trip not long ago. We were laughing so hard, I almost had to pull over. (she also has Fibro as well as RA). Our conversation sounded alot like Donna's comments.
I am still hoping my dh will understand or believe in Fibro and then stupid commercials like these come out and I'm right back where I started. It seems like everyone thinks I can take one pill and be back to my old self. Wrong!!!
Never regret something that made you smile!
The commercial that makes me chuckle is the one for Enzyte.(male enhancement supplement) Do you think it would make my boobs bigger?
The most irritating...I have two. The one is for somekind of period pad. The woman is prancing around in white pants like she is trying out for the Olympic gymnastic team. Like this 'sliver' of what looks like no more than rolled up tissue paper will relieve the pain that feels like someone is poking around in your uterus with an ice pick. Or prevent your head from spinning off its axis...At the end, after she has finsihed doing her bunny hop, they say 'Have a Happy Period. Are they totally serious?? Plus, I NEVER wore white pants until I had a hysterectomy. In order for me to have had a 'Happy Period' they would have had to soak the pad in Oxycotin.
My next most irritating? Have you ever been relaxing in a chair....just dozing off when you hear at a million decibels...." BILLY MAYS HERE, FOR OXYCLEAN!!!" Even my dog who is half deaf jumps off the couch and heads for the hills when she hears his voice.
Oh Shannon and all, you are SO right. I would be off this useless Lexapro and Valium and at least try out Lyrica if the side effects didn't include 'seizures, vomitting and fainting'. I invision myself flopping around in a K-Mart parking lot foaming at the mouth while some stranger tries to prevent me from swallowing my tongue with his cell phone. The initial side effects for Lexapro were bad enough. I don't want to take that ride again!
I just had to get up this morning & check out this post again! I'm glad I did! I got some more laughs from the new comments & I even feel a bit better. Maybe my day will go better!
Donna - are you sure you're not my cousin from Pennsylvania? You sound just like her!
You guys will have me back to watching commercials now! I don't watch much t.v. but when I do I usually ignore them. Now, I'll be watching just to see the humor in them. Thanks again for the laughs everyone!
OMG..this has nothing to do with commericals but on a similar note. My husband bought me a chocolate chip cookie from the little store at the end of the street...On the back where the ingredients are it says: "cellophane packaging not for consumption". Oh really? I had planned to toss the cookie in the garbage and eat the wrapper. What a bummer!
(some kid probably ate the wrapper once and sued the crap out of the company for not posting a warning. My hair dryer has a warning on it..."Do not use in the shower." I guess in retrospect, the cookie warning isn't that bad.)
