Spankin' It

 Y'all seen these ads. Now they have one for men as well. That commercial is even worse than this one.




Well guess what. I ain't buying that this is an effective weight training system. Unless perhaps you are training to masturbate an elephant.

But let's say the thing does work. I've actually heard from several people that it does.Why ignore the 1000 pound smiling elephant in the room? Why act like this apparatus does not illicit more giggles to every TV viewer than the planet Uranus does to a classroom of 12-year-old boys?

Why not just come out and say ...

Look nothing in life is easy. You wanna lose that flab hanging beneath your arm? Are you willing to do anything to tone your body? Then go ahead purchase our gyrating penis thingamajig. 

Sure, it's gonna make you look like a fool.

Sure. you're husband/boyfriend is gonna say rude things like, "Hell I got something you can workout with right here. And it won't cost you three easy payments either."

Sure, you're gonna receive applications for employment from the animal husbandry division of Barnum and Bailey Circus, but at least you Jello won't be the first thing on everyone's mind every time you wave goodbye."

That kind of commercial I could respect.

Truth in advertizing? Are you crazy?

It must be a fine appliance seeing as it is being advertised on the One Word, One Rung blog? So tell me Travis how did it work out for you, are you more toned now? That six pack changed from Bud to Buddies yet?

It is taking all of my self-control - and the presence of my children - to refrain from finding pictures of elephant masturbation.

I can never use one of those things now.

*LAUGHING!* Good Lawd a' Moicy! Now I know why a gay friend of mine and a hetero friend were in a corner at a party laughing about "that new shake exercise thing" - the hetero friend said, "You got to see that ad, just google it!" Then he grinned.


Posey- & JerseyGirl OMG-Laughing!

See? I have no TV, so I miss all this wonderful stuff. Lucky thing you can explain it all for us. I don't want to think about elephants. I. Just. Don't.

Ya gotta wonder, who is sitting around in a gym or board room saying, "If we could just recreate this motion for six minutes, and call it exercise, we can make a fortune!"

Just when I lose faith in the future of the US, someone comes up with a gizmo like this. Then I know Anything Is Possible, even the weirdly improbable.
I mean, is this a great country or what?

We even have happy elephants.

huddlekay said...

I'm so buying one!

Eric said...

LOL, I have seen the ad but I hadn't thought along those lines until I read this post. Hilarious. Now I'm going to be cracking up and will have to explain to the wife what's so funny. Thanks Travis!

Hilary said...

I've never seen the ad on TV but Ellen Degeneres has been making fun of it for about a year now. Ya figure people really buy these things?

Bubblewench said...

Every time we see those commercials we crack up like 12 yo's.

Melissa Marsh said...

LOL! I love what people come up with just to make money.

Barb said...

I can show you a pamphlet of my grandfather's magical apples that cured everything. It's always been around, I fear.
