I Hate The Charmin Bear Commercials
I hate Charmin's cartoon bear commercials. I know what the pitch was: "Does a bear crap in the woods? Yes, and he uses Charmin!" These ads are about as subtle as tampon commercials. We all know what toilet paper is for. I don't need to see bears wiping themselves on my TV. They tried to make them cute, but I find them gross. And they don't wash their hands. Believe it or not, the Charmin bears have names. Here are my suggestions: Stinky, Drippy, Potty, Crusty, and Sticky. I dunno...maybe this is a chick thing.
Bonus: The subtlety continued with Charmin's Super Bowl campaign, featuring Charmin seat cushions ("soft and strong for your end zone!").
