"The Bigger They Are, the Worse They Smell"

I have no idea what to say about this.

Other than the fact that somewhere in America, a group of people sat around a table and came up with the idea for how to market this product. They thought up this commercial.

Then, one or two of them wrote all the copy. Then, other people spent days planning the video shoot. And holding auditions for actors. They hired the spokesperson. Over the course of a few days, they shot this commercial. And edited it.

Then, they all sat in a room, watched the final version of this commercial and said, "Wow, that's good. That's EXACTLY how we want to present this product to the country."

Brace yourself. Here comes Aspray.

You left off one disturbing thing from your list of disturbing events that led to the existence of this commercial.

Someone will buy it.

Andy and I have been laughing about this commercial for a few weeks now. I mean, how bad does your ass have to smell that someone else can smell it? But then again, WHY WAS HE PUTTING HIS FACE THERE?

Can you imagine being the guys in commercial? What are their resumes going to say? "Stank Ass" and "Guy Who Smells Stank Ass" are funny, but I don't think they are going to get you much work.

Sorry to go off, but it boggles the mind.

I saw this on another blog the other day (yes, I'm seeing other people's blogs, love...) and I thought it was a joke.

And Mike, I imagine it's no worse than having "Girl with Herpes" or "Guy with Genital Warts" on one's resume. You take the work where you can get it. Oh - and I can think of plenty of reasons to get close enough to smell someone's ass. Can't you, Stephen?

I wonder if they realize how much people will laugh at this? I know I'm gay, but does ANYONE want to see a lady spraying deodorant on her smelly crotch?

Given that they market this at big people - I find that so offensive.

It seems the big people in society are now the ones that everyone seems to like making fun off.

As a bigger person who had the skinny twink in Kenneth Cole tell me "We dont design for YOUR size" - I wanna buy this product and beat him around the head with it.

Aaron said...

What can I say about this product? Except: I hope we do a Secret Santa at work this year. I REALLY do...

Oh, and Damien, I wouldn't worry about the bony twink at Kenneth Cole. Remember what Eddie said to the snotty gallery assistant in AbFab:

"You only work in a shop, you know, you can drop the attitude."


i can think of a bunch of 'ole cunts' that i could send that to for christmas.

Whew, and here I was all worried about what I was going to do with that 'not so fresh' smell in my netherregions! Now, muy problem is solved! :)

Made in the usa...no kidding, like any other country's gonna have enough idiots in it to actually try to sell this stuff to them.

I don't really understand why that one woman keeps spraying her tits with the Asspray. I mean, I've never had a problem with stinky tits. I also love the lady who sprays her cooch, "Now I can uncross my legs without unleashing THE BEAST". I ALSO lie that you are supposed to buy Asspray, get another one for free and give it to your smelly friend. Can you imagine? "Here, from all of us."
I think though, that I would like to have a can of this Asspray to carry around like Mace and spray on people who's stank offends me on the train or bus.
