Viagra commercials

Posted on Sun, Jun 28, 2009 at 8:12 AM

I am so fucking sick of goddamn ''ED'' commercials. Men, all 18 percent of you that are affected by this problem -- I think if you noticed something wrong with yourselves you would seek out medical help and then find the right prescription other than feeding into these stupid things. Pharmaceutical companies are most to blame. They blare their awkward commercials, teeming with innuendos, but mostly blatant sexual language, during prime time media, where I have to sit in front of my younger siblings and vie my way around explaining what an "erection lasting more than four hours'' is. It's absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary.

I was ringing up customers today at my cashier position and right as this extremely attractive guy places his items on the belt, the TV right next to me explodes: ''VIVVVVAAAA VIAGRAAA!!!" Then goes on to talk: "be sure you are healthy enough for sex. Make sure to consult a physician if you experience erection issues." NOBODY else was around. It was so fucking awkward. Please, Bristol Myers Squibb, go fuck yourselves. But make sure to take your pills first.
