It’s All About The Pits

Speaking of armpits, I have been thoroughly annoyed and cheesed out by the new commercial for Secret deodorant. You know the one, where the young woman giggles and puts her hands in the air to show how her deodorant is working. She walks along in the city, stops in front of the police car, raises her hands, and yells, “I’m innocent! Hee hee hee hee!” So annoying. (But it’s a memorable commercial, and I do indeed know WHAT the advertised product is…so maybe it’s a good ad afterall?)

I’m so annoyed by it that I’ve been keeping an eye out for it on Youtube so I could post it, but no dice: just a couple of amateur versions that I don’t want to display here.

I did, however, pull up this gem from the 1980’s.

That ad doesn’t–and has never–annoyed me. Why is that?

Oh yeah. The girl.

She’s a little over the top. A little too bubbly. A little too happy. A little too fun.

Reminds me of me.

Maybe she’s not so bad*.

*Yes, she is. And I also annoy myself quite often.

    I triple hate that commercial!!! I’m glad I’m not the only one.

    yeah, and everyone else in that commercial is like “lay off the meth, baby…” sheza freeeeek.

    Annoying – very annoying.

    There’s a difference between raising your hand in appropriate situations, and running up to random policemen and raising your arms up for no reason except to get him to smell your pits…

    That ad annoys me to no end, too! Just last night I was saying as much to Darling Daughter. Ugh.

    OMG! The Sure commercial; too funny!! I haven’t seen it in twenty years, yet watching it, it was like I saw it yesterday.

    I feel like I live in a cave because I haven’t seen that Secret ad. I guess they don’t show it on Noggin or Cartoon Network.
