Two, four, six, eight, who we gonna constipate?

August 18, 2008


Blog Guy, you mentioned advertising deals for some of the Olympic athletes. Any idea who will be the first one to do a commercial?

There’s a lot of secrecy of course, but I have spies at the big ad agencies. It seems a number of women weightlifters are already trying out for a laxative commercial, and I’ve even obtained some of the audition photos.

Eeewww! A laxative commercial? Why weightlifters?

See for yourself.  They have that constipated look, and then the camera will pull back to show them lifting weights, as a voice says “Don’t be a dumbbell, use our laxative…” It’s Madison Avenue at its most creative.
