Desperately Seeking Subtlety From Liquid Plumr. And Not Finding It
Wow, where to start?
First, where the hell does YouTube get off making us watch one commercial before seeing another commercial? I mean, really. What the hell?
Next, the sexual innuendo here barely fits into the parameters of what normally makes up "innuendo." "Flush your Pipe?" "Snake your Drain?" A guy leering at this woman while balancing melons in his hands?
Why even bother? Why not just show this woman being jumped by these guys? And keep in mind- this isn't a woman having a fantasy about one guy. It's a woman having multiple fantasies, about multiple guys. She isn't experiencing amorous feelings about that stud she noticed in the fruit section of the grocery store. She's dreaming of being nailed by a stud. ANY stud.
This is so bizarre, so insulting, so downright STUPID that I can't even bring myself to point out what I thought would be my original punchline- that for 99 percent of clogs, that plastic snake thing would do the job. Instead, in keeping with the spirit of this display of awfulness, I'll just say that this woman is clearly backed-up and needs a guy to use his snake to flush her pipes. And now if you'll excuse me, I have to take a shower.
