They have bathtubs in wheat fields? Yeah, that's realistic

I like reading the comments on cnn.com

http://amfix.blogs.cnn.com/2009/05/0...oo-hot-for-tv/

I am so happy someone is trying to get ED Ads pulled. It is not only
for the children and young people, but it is also embarrassing for mixed company adults. Not only is it embarrassing, those love scenes of planned sex have made me sick of sex. What happened to spontaneity and sex because of love. I am embarrassed to see it in front of my husband of 60 years. I hate to think what I would feel as a young married woman. I hope Representative Moran gets to hear how your audience feels. If it must be advertised, then don’t use those fake love scenes. Use only the medical facts.

I have no opinion one way or another, but I think she has a different problem if this is really true.

If you're embarrassed to see an ED ad in front of your husband (of 60 years no less) what do you do if he has ED?

Heavy regulation for direct-to-consumer drug ads in Canada means we skip the retarded ED dialogue...this was Pfizer's first Canadian ad.

YouTube - Viagra commercial

While in Montana I've watched tv shows on nbc.com which also shows the ads that are broadcast on tv. Sometimes even with interactive content.
Those ED ads were among them, and while I don't object to the ads per se, I didn't agree with how they were made up. I think they were done in a way that suggested that everyone should take those pills just to make it a better night, and that it's almost impossible to be healthy enough not to need such medication. I don't know if it was just an unintended bug, but for some reason these very ads didn't just end. After the regular ad was over a menu popped up and the guy in the ad kinldy suggested to klick on them if one needs more info. I had to restart the whole movie to get further.

I don't see these ads to be extremely explicit or inappropriate for children to be seen, and by the time they get it they are old enough to know about sex anyways. I would also be surprised if the pharma companies paid for their ads to be shown during childs' programmes.

I like the Cialis one where the lawn mower is running on its own out in the yard because the man apparently got the urge while cutting grass.

Hilarious.

Atticus Finch would tell his kids about ED.

Oh please. How hard is it to say "ask your mother?"

I find the sheer number of these ads just bloody annoying. And what is really disgusting is that more is spent, in Australia at least, on advertising for this than is spent on prostate cancer research. Glad we've got our priorities straight!

ED is much more profitable...

I get the gist of this quote, but honestly you should have picked a better age. At three and four everything question can be answered with some magical fairytale...

But I have to wonder what these types think about EPT commercials or like someone else said Valtrex commercials.

I have to be honest the first time I saw the "most advanced technology you'll ever pee on" commercial I thought it was an SNL commercial or something.
