This is the spam I get:
“Add four inches!”
“More staying power!”
And I’m too tired to think of anything witty to say…
Thus I’m delighted to welcome guest poster Oscar Barrett – Take it away, Oscar!
The contrast between Viagra ads and Cialis ads is quite striking. Viagra portrays the solitary macho figure sailing his sailboat, pulling his horse trailer, riding his motorcycle or running through the woods. He is a rough and tough customer. With a take charge guy like this his doctor better not say no or ask embarrassing questions when this man asks for some Viagra or he just might deck him.
Cialis takes a completely different approach. They (the ads) portray a sensitive man in his middle age but still desirable, and lively wife who needs some attention. They reassure us that his little problem “might be a question of blood flow” (not desire or god forbid virility). Lucky for him he gets a twofer- that same little pill treats that “blood flow” problem down there also might help that enlarged prostate too. What a deal! So remember, your wife is still cute even if your equipment is temporarily misfiring so go buy our drug and get busy.
**My question – So, Oscar, are you suggesting the company which makes Viagra is aiming their ads at unmarried men while the company making Cialis is hitting up married men? Hmmmm. Now I actually have to pay attention and see what these drug companies are suggesting.
