    That commercial doesn't make sense to me either. There is one that I like but, it might be scary to kids. It's the new Juicy Fruit commercial. The kids are at a birthday party and the little girl is hitting a pinata. The gum fall out. The girl grabs it and the donkey pinata goes bizerk and chases her for the gum. She gives it to him and grabs his tail as he escaped through the pet door.

    and who the hell wants to buy a car where the engine wants to escape in the first place? not to mention the loudness of the monster, and its thrashing about.

    I haven't seen that one yet. I hope my daughter isn't bothered by it as much is she is by the stupid Mercedes one.

    I haven't seen that one, but my cat has always run out of the room when the Goldfish commercial comes on where the giant goldfish are swimming through the house. The football telestrator always terrifies him too!

    Is anybody else offended by condom commercials? I'm not saying there shouldn't be commercials for condoms, just that they don't have to have giggling/moaning people. I can't bear to watch them.

    I'm not necessarily *offended* by them, but like with tampon commercials, I think they can go back to being a little less graphic about what they are used for. We all know what condoms are, we all know what tampons are for. We don't need it spelled out.

    The Trojan commercials are for the MTV crowd with the SVU rocking or the horse whining (?).

    Just give me the facts and that's ok by me. At first I was surprised by the Viagra commercials, but they are kind of cute. I.e. So, Pete. You look different. Did you loose weight?

    OK, let me think

    The um, feminine yeast commercials. TMI
    same with the genital herpes commercial with the woman in the water... makes me wonder what I'm drinking.

    Ugh, yeah. Those are gross. I hate to break it to these companies but if a woman has a yeast infection, she will seek out a product to help her out. You don't have to paint such a graphic picture. Just tell us what its for and don't elaborate!

    The one with the woman who can't be bothered to take her pills all the time because she has a life to live made me say to the TV, "and it was living that life that got you the herpes in the first place".
