No Wonder The Guys On The ‘Nugenix’ TV Ad Have Problems With ‘Performance’ — They Are FAT.

by Anura Guruge



I CAN’T, alas, escape this stupid & INSULTING TV commercial because it appears on the ‘Willow TVcricket channel, ad nauseum, with ‘FF’-disabled.

It makes me LAUGH.

I am 67 & I do NOT have any low testosterone issues & SURE have no problem ‘raising the flag’. I have plenty of energy & I feel GREAT.

No wonder these clowns have issues. They each need to lose about 40 bloody pounds.

Have you noticed that most ‘middle aged’ & older men who play golf are FAT. Can’t be a coincidence. Cut the GOLF, some walk 8-miles (a day) with me. SMILE.


Yes, there was a Trulicity commercial too — and I objected.

‘Jardiance’ TV Commercials For Type II Diabetes Featuring An OBESE Guy Is Criminal!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Link to video below.

Over the last few days I have not been able to avoid this Jardiance ad — and it INFURIATES I.

Why?

Isn’t it obvious?

This ad is bloody criminal.

This FAT guy, ‘Dimitri’, needs to LOSE weight — not take a drug.

Plain & simple as that.

If he lost 80 pounds he wouldn’t need Jardiance.

No mention at all that he needs to stop pigging out, exercise more & lose 80 pounds.

Annoys me intensely. It is criminal.

We should NOT be encouraging bad behavior & saying it is OK to be obese … we have a magic, EXPENSIVE pill for YOU.

Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 80 pounds. It can be done.

Planet Fitness’ Delightful “I Lift Things Up And Put Them Down” Commercial, From 2011, Is BACK!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



Happened to see it, this morning, on ‘GMA’ and it made my morning. Recognized and remembered it at once. What a classic. The guy is such a natural.

Good move by Planet Fitness. Reuse a memorable commercial — and make a definite impact — without spending money on a new one.

Kudos to their marketing team.

They got it right the first time and got it right again. Not too many marketing departments are that savvy.

Watch it again.

I am NOT a great fan of commercials. I Fast Forward through them or change channels and then come back.

But, this one I will watch.

Crew Filming Latest ‘Jeep’ Commercial Driving Around In A Mercedes Benz Van!

by Anura Guruge


The German wagon being used by the crew. You can see that they (like I did a few years ago) drove it across the sandbar when the tide was coming in or going out (i.e., when part of the sandbar was under water).

This was kind of disappointing, ironic and amusing in equal measures.

I guess Jeep does not bother to impose criteria on the film crews they hire.

In the early 1980s when I worked as the Customer Support Manager for ‘ITT Data Systems (UK)‘ ‘British Leyland‘ was one of our big customers (as was ‘Ford‘). I used to have to go visit them often at their various locations — many of them manufacturing plants. A few of these plants, especially up north, would NOT allow non-Leyland cars into their main parking lot. You had to park across the road and walk over. They wanted their main parking lot Leyland only. I had no problem with that since I liked Leyland and owned Triumphs (Spitfires & a TR7) at the time. But, most often I would be driving my company car — which was often a Ford. I thought this was cute on the part of British Leyland. Some of my field support engineers thought otherwise — and, to be fair, unlike I they usually had to lug some ‘heavy’ diagnostic equipment with them (e.g., datascopes). So, they would swap company cars with a colleague, if they could, just to get around the restriction.

Maybe Jeep, now part of ‘Fiat Chrysler‘ should think about a similar policy. I am sure you could find Chrysler vans that could fit the bill.

‘Jeep’ Commercial Being Filmed in Bar Harbor (Acadia) On The Famous Sand Bar.

by Anura Guruge


Click images to ENLARGE.




This was Tuesday morning, June 25, 2019, on the tidal sandbar between Bar Harbor and Bar Island.

Going to the sandbar is one of the first things we do on our visits. The sandbar, at low tide, seemed unusually busy. Part of that was the Jeep commercial being filmed. We did not wait to see all of it. I assume they will have the Jeeps clamoring over the rocks. Would be fun to see it on TV and say “we saw that being shot“.

Enjoy.

Latest Peyronie’s Disease TV Commercial That Mentions ‘Intercourse’ Is Out Of Line.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. You can find the commercial at: http://www.ispot.tv. See link below.


Link to the offensive TV ad. (if you haven’t seen it).


Click to access my prior posts on THESE TV commercials.


As somebody who wrote a book about ‘orgasms’ I am NOT someone that you could easily call a prude! Just check out this book. I have nothing against intercourse; I am actually quite partial to it.

But, as a father of a 12-year old daughter I am not happy to have a TV commercial, on Cable News Channels like CNN, MSNBC & CNBC, that runs during the DAY that openly mentions INTERCOURSE. That is not right. How is that acceptable and permissible in a country that does not permit any nudity on broadcast TV. So no nudity, even at 11pm, BUT it is OK to say ‘intercourse’ at 8:12am in the morning. I am not amused or pleased.

The ‘curved below the belt‘ commercial was not offensive. Just a tad funny.

But, this commercial is BELOW THE BELT.

Do YOU agree?

Why Do U.S. Drug Commercials Say Not To Take It If You Are Allergic To It — Are Americans That Stupid?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and read my annotations. Base ad. for Otezla.



It is MOST blatant in this annoying TV commercial for ‘Otezla’. It says it so loud and clear. If you are lucky enough never to have heard it, just check the above video — ONCE. You need to hear it — once.

So, are Americans that stupid?

Well, we could start with Donald Trump. Enough said?

Yes, yes, yes. I know it is to do with Tort Law and product liability, BUT that raises the question as to whether American judges are that stupid — and I won’t even bother mentioning lawyers! So, this is what they are worried about. An ‘injured’ patient telling a judge: ‘Yes, your honor. I still kept on taking Otezla even though I realized I was allergic to it. I didn’t bother to tell my doctor or pharmacist. I just kept on taking Otezla because a prior drug I took, which I was also allergic to, made me incredibly stupid.

I just finding it insultingly annoying.

What do YOU think?

The Lilly ‘Trulicity’ TV Commercials For Diabetes Are So Farcical That They Are Insulting.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and read my annotations.



I have seen a few of these Trulicity commercials on TV of late and they have made me see red.

Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 40 pounds before you even think of Trulicity.

Lilly should be ashamed.

35-years ago Eli Lilly (in the UK) was one of my networking customers. They were a great company that I enjoyed dealing with. This is BELOW the Eli Lilly that I knew and respected.

Lose the weight.

Love The Heineken “I Am Still Driving” Commercial Featuring Jackie Stewart & A Jaguar.

by Anura Guruge




What a great commercial — by an American beer company at that.

I thank them, profoundly, for having the good taste to feature two British iconic Lions: Jackie Stewart & Jaguars.

The Jaguar is understated and unless you know your Jaguars you are NOT going to realize that it is a Jag.

I also wonder how many Americans know of Jackie.

I discovered that this commercial was made last year. But, today was the first time I had seen it — mainly because I fast-forward over commercials.

Well, you can see the commercial above. Enjoy — both Jackie and the Jag.

“If You Are Curved Below The Belt” Commercial On TV — WTF?

by Anura Guruge


Click to access full video at “ispot.tv”.


Endo Pharmaceutical” print ads. Click to ENLARGE.


I happened to be quite contentedly watching CNBC around 9:50am this morning (with the stock market again up), brushing my teeth, when this commercial came on.

I am NOT easily shocked, but I thought this was below the belt. Ouch!

Wow.

Nope. Don’t have it — or NOT as yet. But given how I am falling apart this may also be in my future — though I hope not. I have enough problems, thank you.

Yes, I have heard of it and KNEW at once what the commercial was going to be when I saw “curved below the belt“.

When are we going to draw the line. The ED ads were bad enough. But, now this.

Very clever to have it on CNBC. Perfect demographics. And yes, it is good to get the word out that there is treatment for this condition.

It is just a tad jarring to see IT on TV.

But, c’est la vie. Next time I will be ready and will not be shocked.
