Look at me! I'm a size 2!

My nomination for the worst commercials ever: those for NutriSytem. One woman says: "Look at me I'm a size 2, hahaha." Another woman refers to her "smoking hot body." A man says his wife doesn't find him "as digusting anymore.:

Wtf?

I am ready for a break from TV. Back to novels.

End rant.

Re: Look at me! I'm a size 2!

Martha - I'm so glad you brought up this topic.

I can't stand Nutri System commercials! How about the chick who said "I was a size 10 and now I'm a 2!" Nothing like perpetuating eating disorders. Also the male version of the commercials are a crack up. The message for men seems to come across as "eat our rib stickin meals and get laid!". :P

Oh but theeee best commercial is Maxyderm male enhancer which depicts the old fart taking the young dancing babe out of the bar for a roll in the hay.

how about grecian formula (or some similar shoe polish) advertising: "don't let the grey hide the real you."

I hate all the diet program commericals and I hate all the wrinkle cream ads too, they never show someone that is old enough to have wrinkles or lines in the commercials.

Here's a picture from the Maxiderm Male Enhancer site - WTF The advertising industry is nuts.

Yeah, Outtahere, I agree with you on the wrinkle creams. Although, Diane Keaton seems to think that calcium in her facial cream will make her skin "stronger".

Re: Look at me! I'm a size 2!

I think the most annoying thing about that commercial is how she says it. I'm a size teew. Plus, she doesn't look like size 2 to me, I think the new size 2 is what size 6 used to be.

Martha, when are you going to Mexico - I'm ready to hear reports about it!

If she's having to look that closely, he must really have needed a remedy!

She's wearing his underwear. It goes to reason he's wearing hers.

While deleting spam from my email the other day I saw a subject line introducing new Cialis soft tabs. Is it a new form or a cure for priapism?

ROFLMAO. That was my thought, exactly. All she needs is a set of binoculars.

Sounds like the advertising industry is hitting a raw nerve with the large, wrinkled, gray-haired, small-Johnsoned demographic.
