Xenadrine Says Don't Be Such A Fat Ass

xenedrine.jpg

Thank God some company finally had the balls to chuck political correctness out the window and talk straight. Hurling insults such as "You're so fat you got baptized at Sea World, "You sweat Crisco" and "You're so fat, when you tried to cross the street, people ran out of gas trying to go around you," this commercial for weight loss drug Xenedrine is bluntly honest. Calling overweight people "fat asses," Xenedrine urges people to lighten up and burn the fat away. Of course, there's the whole debate about whether a drug is as good as honest exercise to lose weight but we'll save that debate for another time.

I played it for my daughter who is still a little over weight after the birth of twin boys and then a daughter. She thought it was funny and would "look up" information about it on the web.
She's thirty-five and it wasn't enough to make her run to the local store in search of it. It will be interesting to watvh the results.

Never heard the Sea World one before, HILARIOUS. I hope it is effective, even if only because it's refreshing to see evidence of an agency/client team with balls.

You're so fat, when your beeper goes off, people think you're backing up.

You're so fat, when you haul ass it takes you two trips.

You're so fat, when you were diagnosed with the flesh eating disease, the doctor gave you ten years to live.

You're so fat, when your husband climbs on top of you, his ears pop.

I'm here all week folks. Try the veal.

That was lame; not funny at all (im quite fit myself, fyi). At first i thought it was some sort of medicatio; but, its just another voodoo supplement.

Whenever i get the urge to buy a TV, commercials like that remind me why i dont have one in the first place.
