I saw a commercial the other day for some lawyer. Can't remember his name, but the last commercial he had was for Meso-something or other.. It had to do with asbestos I think.. Anyway, his new one is for people injured with nail guns. I laughed for a while.

May not qualify for stupidest, but certainly funniest. Anyone else see that one?

I know this is the Bashing thread but

When i was watching the race today, i saw one of my old favorites,

I know it is for dodge but..............

The Jeremy Mayfield Commercial when the chick is scrubbing in the bath tub with the tire brush, then she gets out of the tub, and she is puttin car wax in her hair, then when she is all dressed she puts on gas............

When she gets into Jeremys car he says

"is that 93 octane your wearing??"

She says

"Yea you like it???"

"OH Yea........."


then speeds off, i LOVE IT

I saw one of those medicine commercials last week. I forgot what it was for. one fo the warnings was, "if you have heart failure, you should not take this medicine."

i though that was funny

Valtrex.

Playtex Gentle-glide.

Herpesin L or H, or whatever...

Those are the comercials I could do without every 5 minutes.

Those two ladies (neighbors) singing the "Baby Back Ribs" song...

I hate that last one with a passion. I do like the Axe deodorant comercials. Funny thing, I remember seeing Axe in Latin America since the day I arrived there but I guess it's new here, huh?

I like the ones that have side effects the same or worse as why your taking the medicine...

Alegra, for your seasonal alergies. May cause cough, runny nose, and sneezing.

Prilosec, for acid flux disease. May cause adominal pain and sudden uncontrolled bleeding from the stomache.

I hate those too

But i took a pshycology class last semester at school, and found out that ,the reason they put the side effects in the drug is so that you know the medicine is working.

But i dont think that my alergys would be bad enouph for me to put up with all that crap

Sorry if i sound like some smart guy

Actually....

The reason that they put all the side effects on there is for.....

yes, legal reasons.

It's a federal law that if you advertise an FDA approved prescription drug in any forum (TV, magazine, anything), you have to give "both sides" so to speak. For example, Allegra commercials. Allegra is for allergies. So the company praises it's worth in treating allergies and gives all this good stuff, but the law states that you have to states side effects and warnings. And they ususally do it while you see everyone running around having a good life. Like they think we're not listening!
Notice that when Mark Martin advertises Viagra, he never states what it is for. Because of that, they don't have to give side effects (which in old people with heart problems can be fatal).
Also, in magazines, when you see an ad for a prescription drug, turn the page and you'll see the package insert, which comes with every packaged drug from the manufacturer. It's basically everything mandated that a pharmacist or a doctor needs to know what the drug is if they have questions. And the thing about that is, every side effect that someone has while the drug is in the trial phase has to be put in there. So, if say someone was on a trial for a new allergy medicine before it hit the market and he, for reasons not even closely related to the allergy medicine, dies of a heart attack, that has to be entered into the side effect column of a package insert. "Sudden death" or "myocardial infarction".
So......long explanation to show how it's purely a legal thing.

Why can't they see? If the medicine is working... most of your allergies are GONE. That's the way I would see that it's "Working". Stupid Legal reasons.
