    Me personally, I'm not offended by it so much as I'm a bit grossed out -- when I was around ten, one of my male cousins (who was a toddler at the time) had taken his diaper off and was moving around in the same stance because he had a dingleberry stuck on his ass -- this commercial reminds me of that not-so-lovely image

    Put the shoe on the other foot, though...instead of guys jingling their junk, what would reactions have been if it had been a bunch of busty women jingling their jugs?

    So basically ever Go Daddy and Hardy's commercial ever? Except in those they are generally extremely exposed. To be analogous the women would need to be wearing full coverage t-shirts, and they never are.

    It definitely was not for the US -- it was for the market in Europe

    Here's a about the commercial: One of my close relatives is an Exec. in Advertising - he and his team are the brains behind that ad as Durex is his account. The crazy thing is that it won some Advertising Industry award the year it came out. Our entire family shit eggrolls when he showed it to us for the first time, and his parents were a bit at first because as much as they want to share their son's accomplishments with their friends, telling them he won an Industry award for a condom commercial can be, shall we say, a bit awkward ).

    Bonus: For shits and giggles, they created "outtakes" (they same way Pixar occasionally does outtakes that roll during the movie credits):

    The 3rd one is a riot! Thanks for that!

    As I've mentioned before, I was an AD for an Ad agency in NYC. My primary account was Lipton. We were doing a spot with Don Meredith - AKA "The Lipton Tea Lover". I inherited that tag line, hated it! And couldn't stand working with Don Meredith, but… Anyway, we were shooting a "Lipton Taste Test" in an empty store in a North NJ mall. We had Don set up at a "diner style" counter. We, then, picked random people from the mall. We found this one great big bulky buy, and asked him to come in and to the taste test. He agreed. So, we bring him in, sit him next to Don. They look at each other and all we hear is "How ?!@#% the hell are you", What the ?!@#$% have you been doing, ?!@#$, ?!@#$. It was absolutely hysterical. Turns out the big bulky guy was also a former NFL football player, who knew Don when they both played. The spot was brilliant, but we couldn't use any of it! LOL

    ^^ Funny!

    This is still my all time favorite. Patrick Warburton is probably why it works so well!

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    That is the BEST Christmas ad I've seen this year and if you don't get at least a little tear in your eye over it, you might want to get your heart checked out. SO sweet!

    I've seen that one a few times. And it is really touching. But, every time I watch it, I think - How did they get into her apartment? And, is that trespassing?
