    Guys, If I see one more Enzyte commercial....

    and that Bob, and his goofy grin, I'm.........well...........uhhhhhhhh
    probably gonna.............uh .................buy the product.

    No thanks, however, to the ridiculous advertising! Stupid grin, neighborhood women all atitter over some unknown prowess that Bob seems to possess, and that nebulous voice-over, pitching large this and big that! Ridiculous!

    It hasn't been that long since the sight of my cutey high school classmate sent my nethers into an immediate response so I had to use my notebook for a modesty panel for an hour!!

    HA. Who am I kidding? My body does nothing for an hour anymore except itch, and my left eye twitches uncontrollably for minutes on end.

    Gentleman, some of you will soon be reaching an age where you are going to need some assistance. Trust me on this. I maintain that if their advertising was a bit more familiar to us, we would be far more inclined to buy their product. This is a sensitive subject and I think their advertising could use some help. I would like to submit the following partial list of commercials that we are more familiar with, and thus would be more comfortable with the subject, ergo more interest, and voila, more sales would be generated. Everybody wins.

    Remember the Pepsodent commercial jingle, "You'll wonder where the yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent?
    How about,"You'll wonder just what size you'll get if you take an Enzyte tab-a-let?
    See? Familiar. Comfortable. Puts you at ease immediately.
    I offer the list below, nothing dirty, gross, or nasty of course.

    Proud, from Coca Cola. "It's the real thing."
    Prouder still, from Ajax. "Stronger than dirt."
    Too proud, from Prudential. "Get a piece of the rock"
    Cautionary, from Hi Karate. "Be careful how you use it"
    Omniscient, from Virginia Slims. "You've come a long way baby"
    Not proud enough, Avis. "We try harder"
    What if you take two tablets? "Double your pleasure, double your fun"

    I suppose with the increase in sales and popularity of the product, there will be detractors and they too will use the familiarity theme and approach to their messages.

    From 7Up. "Never had it, never will"
    From Chiffon. "Its not nice to fool mother nature"
    From Wendys. "Where's the beef?"

    I suppose in retrospect, I might have been a bit hasty, and perhaps I should take the message from Chiffon to heart.
    For the moment, I will leave you with the following from Meatloaf.........
    "I would do anything for love, (but I won't do that.)

    Hmmmmmmmm ...catchy, might make a nice jingle for someone.

    Balrog, you're nuts. But methinks in this case you're missing an "l".

    The commercials are usually funny - the first time through.

    When I'm watching the Santa one in July, for the 20th time that night, then I just want to beat Bob to death with one of the North Pole things that he has next to the Santa chair...

    On a side note... can you imagine what life is like for Smiling Bob? For his sake I hope he lives in the middle of no where, 'cause I'd get real sick of the heckling I'd get walking around town...

    Good old lovable Bob. The gal just soaks him up. She must really love him to tolerate his sudden urges. Yes sir, Bob is living the sweet life.

    Yes, because you may be overcome by the fumes and pass out before you even go out for the evening.

    Are you suggesting that if Bob suggested that Enzyte helps you "Get a piece of the rock" that it might work better? Or recommended that the ladies "Be careful how you use it?" Or that at Enzyte "We try harder?"

    I personally love how they've labeled the mailer - as if it's made of some super-scientific plastic/paper.

    Those are hilarious. They looked like they were filmed locally in NY.
