not a boating accident
Clever or foul? You decide. Some of these have to be fake, like the pool ad that misspelled absorbent, or the hotel room ad, which makes no sense.
The virgin question is how I got duped into giving my first blowjob. What a sucker I was. ;)
Omg, I remember the "Will I still be a virgin?" ad!!!!!! I'm sure I was young and wondering the same thing! I actually found all of the other Ones clever, except for the dangling fish...that was just rotten. Ha!
I remember the virgin one. It was in "Seventeen" magazine back in 1987 or so.
I think the fish one says "I am like a fish in water" but that really makes no sense!
That reminds me of the joke about the chick asking a cashier the price of Tampax. So he jumps on the PA and asks for "price check on Tampax". So another store employee calls back and asks "do you want the kind you push in with your finger or the kind you hammer in?" and the chick was like WTF?! So the guy asks her "well what kind of thumbtacks did you need?"I prolly butchered that because I suck at re-telling other people jokes, but you get the gist. :)
The one with the dangling fish made me say, "Eww." I don't get the hotel one either. I can't decide if the vampire one is clever or just gross.
I have seen the vampire one before in a magazine. Guess the spell checker was off that day!
Geez! Who wouldn't want to be the ad guy for feminine products? The Mother Nature one made me laugh.
The fish one is gross. I agree with Daisy regarding the vampire ad. It also made me think of getting wisdom teeth pulled for some reason. In no way EVER would I swim in an area with a lot of sharks if I was using a tampon...wait, I wouldn't swim in an area with a bunch of sharks anyway.
My best interpretation of the hotel ad is the guy is pissed because he booked a hotel room for some wild Valentine's Day monkey sex and his date is chilling with Aunt Flo. I have no idea how a tampon helps you "outsmart mother nature" in this case. A calendar would have been way more useful.
"Use Tampax and don't get eaten by a shark, even when you have your period!" hahaha, so ridiculous...The hotel one definitely doesn't make sense. Maybe if it was an ad for Diva Cups or Instead Cups (because you can still have sex with them in), but I've never heard of anyone having sex while using a tampon...
Hotel dude's been cock-blocked by the cotton pony!! Curses! ;)
If he was really horny he'd put down a towel and still go for it.
I too remember the "virgin" ads, I believe they were in every issue of Seventeen and YM for my entire youth. As for the motel ad, for some reason it reminded me of my ex, who thought that if I had "girl issues" I would be open to some backdoor lovin' How wrong he was.
