New products that are full of shit

    Having just seen an ad for some "new" Edge gel shaving cream, I have to ask,

    Aren't you sick of these full-of-shit corporations showing inane, puerile commercials for "new" or "improved" products that needed no improvement because they were doing just fine before, and it's really not credible in the slightest that we either needed them to be improved, or that they are even improved in the first place?!

    Some examples:
    - Shaving cream: was fine. No need for OR room for any noticeable improvement
    - Laundry detergent: Yeah, like we'll notice some difference. Once the wash is done, the laundry's clean -- case closed.
    - Razors: What idiot actually believe we need landfills full of disposable battery powered razor blades?! And we went for about four decades with double blades. Now we need FOUR?! Says who? (Answer: some scumbag greedy marketing specialist)
    - Soap/"body wash": Yeah, my body doesn't get MOIST enough in the SHOWER. I need micro-emolients or whatever bullshit you're selling.

    When they "improved the taste" of Golden Grahams, do you think a single person said, "Wow! These are better!"??! :mad:

  2. Haha -- this is SOOOO true

    some comedian once said, ' does shaving cream REALLY soften your beard, or is it just there so you don't lose your place?'

    um...the Golden Grahams really do taste better :p

    I'm glad you like.

    Crass commercialism is -- I truly believe this -- the downfall of modern civilization. Just you watch.

    Did you see the sickening Dentyne commercial where the little fuckin' WHORE starts JUMPING her boyfriend right on the couch next to her parents?! She actually whips off her fucking SWEATER!

    But that's not bad enough. Her MOM actually chews a piece of the gum and ravishes the DAD!

    It made me feel like throwing up -- all over the shitbag who came up with the idea for this commercial, plus anyone who had a hand in bringing it to television.

    prism :o

    That reminds me of something George Carlin said: "Sometimes advertising people realize that "homemade" sounds too full of shit, so they switch to "home-style." They'll say something has a home-style flavor. Well, whose home are we talking about? Jeffrey Dahmer's?"
