Chick Perspective

During last night's (or, more accurately, this morning's) Insomnia Fest, I was tuned into TV Land, as I'm wont to do in the wee small hours, as there's always something on I'll watch. I was enjoying Barney Fife nervously and pompously melting down over being the temporary sheriff while Ange was in Raleigh when we cut to commercial.

This commercial.



I'd seen it before -- during football season it ran and ran and ran. But the absurdity of it really struck my sleep-addled self at that moment. WTF? Six guys, sitting around a'pickin' and a'grinnin', singing about Viagra. That's just odd.

For the other side of the coin, I give you this:



PowerChicks and Viva Viagra. We've certainly come a long way, baby, from Bobby Riggs' brand of male chauvinism, haven't we...

I have never seen that commercial before. And I am seriously disturbed by it. (Of course, I find all of viagra's advertising ludicrous and disturbing, so maybe it's just me)

Wamba Tootsi Viagra?

Thanks for visiting by blog, btw!

That is one sick commercial. Priapsis, here we come. (Pardon the pun - it was unintentional!)

I too was disturbed by the hard-on hootenanny. The only time it should be socially acceptable for a man to break into song upon acheiving an erection is if it's his first.
