Canesten Commercial!

  1. okay I have a huge problem
    (no not a yeast infection!)
    I was just loungin around today and saw a commercial for canesten cream and the main "Character" was a nurse...shes yattering about how canseten lets her get her work done and what have you...bedpans falling over, a stretcher coming down the hall way and her talking to the camera about canesten vag cream!
    gimme a freakin break!
    this annoys me on so many levels
    namely :
    1. the use of a nurse image might give the impression that nurses endorse this product etc
    2. the nurse is letting a freakin yeast infection get her down? please! yeah imagine "I cant come to work today, I have that no so fresh feeling"
    3. the nurse, is ignoring all of the action and work in order to sing the praises of canesten! highly unlikely
    irritating (the commercial that is)
    dont take me seriously , I'm just joking and whatever but still that commercial is pretty annoying...

    happee--I am sure you will agree that seeing commercials like this is a small price to pay for the privilege of watching Jerry Springer.

    haha yes good point
    nothin like seeing two women beating the heck out of eachother for some bald redneck to make you feel super normal!
    this episode of jerry springer brought to you by canesten vag cream - by nurses for nurses
    jerry springer should be brought to us by penicillin!!
    or better yet, not brought to us at all!

    I think Jerry Springer should be brought by Valium, Haldol, Prozac...

    Hmm, smell my finger?

    Yeah and the Imitrex one gets me. I wouldn't want my baby handled by that "nurse."

    The Imitrex one cracks me up because there's a little disclaimer in the lower left hand corner of the screen at the start of the commercial: "NURSE DRAMATIZATION". Yah mean the nice lady with the good hair and perfect scrubs isn't a nurse, she's an actress? Really?
