I don't remember which commercial it is (I hate them all), but the woman who acts like she is in the middle of a seduction and says "when he wants it" - I could slap her. I always turn the sound off if I'm near or go to another channel (probably has the same commercial there, tool) When they first started advertising Viagra, my gs was about 3. He had seen the commercial one day and asked my dh "Papa, do you need some Viagra?" I suppose he thought papa wasn't as happy as the guy who took it.

I hope eventually they are barred from TV just like cigarette and alcohol commercials.

It's the way they list the side effects that is so hilarious. They make them sound good! lol

How about it. "You may have a heart attach" for using our drug but your sinuses will be clear. I agree. My family makes fun of these commercials all the time. Anybody remember "Happy Fun Ball" from Saturday Night Live. Life imitating art?

E mail is no better. By the time I get through all the crap I do not know whether to refinance my house, go back to school or help some Nigerian Ex Head of State move a couple million dollars out of the country. Hahahahahhahahah!

I saw a new clip a while ago about some sad sack who fell for that and was taken for $25,000.

Commonly known as the Nigerian Scam. There was a lady last year who lost 2 mil. of somebody elses money. I wanted to open a web site called Ex Nigerian Heads of State and give advice, for a fee, to Nigerian Heads of State on how to not get killed and keep their money. I was thinking of charging 10 k for Nigerian Heads of State and 5 k for their widowed wives. My company will not let me. I though it would be funny.

Talking

They send lots of people to jail for selling Drugs ,But they are pushing them on the tube ! go figure

They get rid of Monuments in our parks and in front of our public buildings, Because someone is "Offended" but they put these ads on tv, Does that "Offend" anyone ? Talk about double standards !
