From the "I can't believe this is really an ad" files:

Sorry about the wrinkly scan below, but my wife crumpled up the page and threw it away after I had torn it out of the magazine and left it on the counter. I have no idea why she didn't want this lying around the house.

Now, on to the picture. All I can say about this ad is... really? Are you telling me we're supposed to be looking up this woman's skirt and thinking "Mmm, BERRY SMELLING bowels!"

And that pose. Is it just me or does it look like she's got her ankles braced for maximum push velocity?

And ok, that final catch phrase... "Beautify your inside." I suppose that's for the guy who claims he's not interested in a woman for how beautiful she looks on the outside, but for how beautiful she smells on the inside?

New! Click-n-Sniff (tm)
I so have to get a job in marketing.

Julie Pippert said...

Great Balls of Fire!!!

Sandy said...

That is wrong on so many different levels!

mom said...

I can't believe this add is for real!!! Did you notice she'sitting on a velvet chair?---
now that make sense!!! Help!!! WHAT will they come up with next?

andi said...

Quite possibly the oddest ad ever.

Gale said...

Well, it is obvious that I have been doing it wrong all of my life, must go to dressbarn for formal toilet ceremony attire. Perhaps a florist....
This is disturbing.

Dan said...

Speaking for myself I have always taken pride in my beautifully smelling bowels. The secret is those pine tree car air-fresheners

Jennine said...

So now the word "Dingleberry" finally makes sense to me.

deborah said...

so I guess "tooting and getting wet with berries" is a good thing now. GREAT! Just add the bouQuet with that? OH, and the chifon dress. AND velvet chair.

Avitable said...

I usually just eat potpourri.

Jeff said...

kathy - Then this comment makes no sense!

heather - Well said.

julie - Nice try though!

bill - Um, that sounds painful.

sandy - And In so many bowels too.

mom - The used velvet because it absorbs the berry smell so nicely.

andi - Yes, I have to agree.

gale - You mean you don't normally dress up when you... toot?

dan - I hope I never find out.

jennine - LOL. Good one!

deborah - Yes, you could start a whole new trend!

avitable - Which I'm assuming is probably the healthiest part of your diet.

I would love to guest blog here anytime, thanks for the offer. Are you sure? what If I talk about stabbing someone?

That's up there with "Two girls, one cup." Go ahead and google it. I dare you.

Carla said...

That's just wrong on so many levels.

Gary said...

Huh ?

Huh ?

Someone wake me up please, I don't like this nightmare.

JD said...

I've seen this ad, and like your wife, I crumpled it up and threw it in the trash.

When will ad execs learn: bowels are not supposed to beautiful (berry or not) and no one wants to hear about them in any capacity?!

rick said...

I'm waiting for root beer flavor.

neva said...

that was berry disturbing. ; )
