Trojan Condoms Complaint - TV Ad - Commercial

Review by bowwow on 2008-01-02
MIDLAND, TEXAS -- I have recently viewed a TV commercial for Trojan Condoms involving pigs "evolving" to a man buying condoms. This was on daytime TV & rather difficult to explain to my 7 yr. old grandson. I would find any condom ad distasteful and tasteless.

I found it comical.

you can buy flavored condoms now.(from what I've seen in some of the best gas station restrooms). would that make them tasty??

Have you ever seen condom ads in other countries? They are very adult and can be quite explicit (but not graphically) as to use. But no one over there complains.
Posted by jktshff1 on 2008-01-02:
and you see what shape those countries are in.
kids don't watch tv there..they put them to work.

PassingBy, any of the ads in Europe for anything will make American's blush. We are sort of prudes compared to what you see in other countries.

For variety of condoms at a discounted price, visit www.discountcondomking.com. I order from there all the time, instead of going to the drugstore to avoid the embarrassment.

Thanks for the tip MRM. I usually go to the adult stores to get condoms. The variety is more fun.

Old F...""It's the big one elizabeth, I'm a'comin"...."

I wish you would have found a better expression to use on a condom thread...LOL!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-01-02:
....Anyway...I agree with the Poster...condom and Tampon commercials need to go the way of the old cigarette commercials...the youngins' are now saying, "I never seen a commercial for cirgarettes"...ohhhhhh that Marloboro man...yeeehaaa!

I usually just grab a handful at what ever NYC bar I'm at that night. Then I put them in my co-workers purse before she goes to visit her parents. I love the irate phone call I get later that night when her parents "discover" them in her purse. Oh yeah, she's 29!

I gotta try that sometime GothicSmurf!
Posted by Justusryan on 2008-01-02:
Better tell the kid he should use 'em!
Posted by CrazyRedHead on 2008-01-02:
Would you rather educate him now or wait until he grows up and his pregnant girlfriend is standing on your doorstep. I hate condoms, which is probably why I have five kids, but you have to educate those yunguns early, or they will try to figure it out on there own.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-01-02:
I've seen that commercial. There is no true 'evolving' involved (Crikey -- did MEN actually evolve from pigs??) , as that takes thousands of years. I think it's more about responsibility...yeah, and what CrazyRedHead said.

shame on them for promoting safe sex...

I am assuming that your grandson wasn't watching seasame street at the time. So what exactly were you letting him watch? Ophra/Springer/Tyra? The advertisements are usually aimed at the target audience for the TV program. What you were letting him watch probably wasn't appropriate.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-01-03:
RobF...that same thought crossed my mind.
Posted by Principissa on 2008-01-03:
I'm with Red on this one. I have a son that age, and to be honest I would rather him ask questions now, than wait until he becomes a dad at 16 to ask them. There is an easy explanation when he asks what they are for. Men wear those so they don't become dad's or get diseases. And if he asks why tell him that you will explain the rest when he gets a little bit older.

What do you tell your grandson while you're watching the Soaps and people are jumping in an out of bed for the majority of the program?
Posted by GothicSmurf on 2008-01-04:
Have we wrapped this up now? Is it safe to come back and participate after being accused of infecting everyone else's thoughts?
Posted by jktshff1 on 2008-01-04:
LOL Gothic!!

This is distasteful but there are worse ones on tv. Daytime is bad but what about diarrhea, constipation, vaginal odor & menstruation at dinner time? I didn't see the one you reviewed but the pigs turning into men sounds like part of the wonderful widespread MALE BASHING that is going on everywhere.
Posted by trmn8r on 2010-12-29:
Alas, I wasn't here when this complaint was being discussed, but my take was the same as this other late arrival - I find the male bashing to be the most distasteful part. I'm not going anywhere near "vaginal odor at dinner time."
