Stupid TV Commercial Sunday # 17

First off, Happy Mother's Day. At first I was mad at my mom for not taking me to Grandma's, but the more I thought about it, a 10-hour car ride with 3 dogs and noisy Beaker wasn't on my hit list. Mom and I made up when she came home by having me sleep on her head; I know it went a long way towards keeping the peace.

This week's stupid commercial continues a recent trend in my dumb commercial harpooning: human bathroom needs. If you remember, last time I criticized Angel Soft's "just right" toilet tissue ad. Well, this week, I am taking on Charmin's disturbing bears ad campaign.

First off, why are bears being used to sell paper for humans to wipe their butts with? Second, why would any company use the idea of one bear removing bits of toilet paper from another bear's butt as a selling point?

Dumb, and a little disgusting. See my previous stupid commercial post for how cats deal with these issues.

  1. This is one of those commercials that really makes you wonder what they were "thinking". Purposely stupid or cleverly brilliant?
