Roman.Com's "Funny" Erectile Disfunction Ad....
First, let me point out to all of you who are not regular readers of this blog- and that's pretty much all of you, based on the numbers- that I don't do erectile disfunction ads here. I mean, I've done like three of them over the course of nearly ten years. That's three out of more than a thousand posts. I don't do them.
Second, let me assure you that the only reason I even looked at this ad was because I was searching for a particular Napoleon Grill commercial and found this instead. I was not looking for an erectile disfunction ad, I was looking for one about these obnoxiously overpriced grills.
But, since I've found this ad and actually watched it, I'll take a moment to snark on it's rank offensiveness anyway. We've got a white guy and a black guy standing next to a grill while insisting to a disembodied voice that they've got no-- um-- problems. I'm frankly surprised that no women make an appearance to give an eye-roll to their "if anyone here as an issue, it's the guy standing next to me" defensive stutterings. I'm not at ALL surprised that one of them spends the entire commercial holding a hot dog impaled on a fork, because that's how Subtle works in these ads. Which is why I don't do them.
Ok, now back to the great Napoleon Grill Search. Sorry about that.
