as someone who enjoys the 'extra optical inch', I've been planning to buy one of these things myself for some time now.. it's been around for at least 2 years now.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea for a product, but there's always something particularly entertaining about truth in advertising. Ever see the film Crazy People? It proposed gems like "Jaguar: For men who want handjobs from beautiful women they hardly know," and "Volvos, they're boxy, but they're good." Not to mention "Yes! I want to go to the bathroom!"

"Who wants to be a fire engine?"

Sorry, I use that one a lot, and no one ever knows where it comes from.

Heh...very strange.

The intro is funny enough, but the "music video" gets major points for rhyming "antiquated dial-up modem" with "frshly shaven scrotum". ;P

I'm looking forward to his follow-up single "Like a Cactus (It Itches, It Itches)", due out in about three weeks.

Gotta love an ad campaign that's basic premise is "shave your goodies, it will make them look bigger!"

Hee hee

Really, though, it makes me want to do up a marketing plan for the girlie version...

This is vaguely disturbing. I wish they'd allow it on TV.

that's a pretty awesome ad. grendel was raving about it when we talked to him at como3 last year so i watched the ad and ended up watching it over and over again cuz it's so damn funny. i didn't buy the product but the ad really entertained me...
