Drug company ads

There's nothing quite as manly as testosterone. Especially when you're rubbing it into your smelly armpits.

So does anyone else out there think this ad campaign:






Would be a helluva lot better if it featured the Old Spice Guy?





"Smell like a man, man."


Just wondering.

Dr. Grumpy you're a genius.

Mmm, mmm mm. Hot stuff. ;-)

Could it PLEASE feature the Old Spice Guy? Pretty please? :-)

Boy, if you thought the guys in the locker room made fun of you before, wait till they see you using this...

Everything would be better with the Old Spice Man.

Old Spice guy is better to look at, but I don’t think he needs any extra testosterone. That would be like an anorexic lady advertising Weight Watchers.

Grumpy:

You know all those drug reps have to worry about Legal jumping all over them because Old Spice Guy would cause riots for their product, because all the "manly men" would be running and beating up anyone trying to take their testosterone-laden product.

Would be a heckuva sales pitch. Too bad you can't get a commission!

Hell to the yes, man. The Old Spice guy got a lot more going on than slightly flabby middle aged white guy over there.

I wonder how oldspice affects this drugs absorption?

We actually got a script for this the other day and (as soon as I figured out what it was) I thought it was pretty bizarre. Apparently applying it to the armpits reduces the chance of transfer to the unwitting female or child that snuggles up to Dad (or something.......)????

just inject it and get it over with. seems like a lot of hassle for something that can be done 3x/week in 30 seconds with better results.

Frantic Pharm, I don't know about that theory...my daughter is always sporting the smell of Axe deoderant in her hair.

Drugs and Deli said...

Wow, just wow. Can't wait to educate staff on that one. The techs will be looking at me like I either lost it or it's April fool's day.

by the looks of things, Old Spice Man doesnt' need any armpit testosterone, but I'd be happy to smear it on him, instead of that flabby old guy in picture no. 1

is it ironic the ad banner beneath this post is for Axe?

Do you think Axiron might be suitable for this patient? See http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=zkd5dJIV

You know what would really work? If the Axiron made the flabby guy turn into the Old Spice Guy!
