You know that feeling when you watch a commercial and it makes no sense to you, and it makes you irrationally angry? Well, I had that feeling yesterday!
It was that Liquid Plumr commercial for the liquid plus pipe snake thing combo. In the commercial, a lady is home and two sexy plumbers come to her door, and the commercial is all sexual innuendo as they clear the blockage in her sink.
Now, I get the whole old stereotypical fantasy of the housewife hitting on the workmen who come around during the day while husband is at work. But … now she wants to get tag-teamed by TWO sexy plumbers? Isn’t that taking the old stereotype a litttttle too far??
But more importantly, THERE IS NOTHING SEXY ABOUT CLEANING OUT A BLOCKED DRAIN. The blockage is usually 90% human hair, soggy, filthy and disgusting, and whenever I make Darling Husband clean one of these, I can hear him gagging from the next room (where I am probably watching TV and drinking a beer, haha!). Therefore, this commercial makes no sense and really irritates me!
What commercials have you seen that really made no sense to you??
