May I just ask who the hell Charmin has in their test groups that keep giving those damn bears the okay? A bear taking a dump in the woods is adorable, apparently .

Actually, Charmin very rarely tests the Bears any more. I work in market research and my client is Charmin and Bounty. They are pretty set on the carrier of the message. It's really just the message that is constantly changing. Most likely the only way Charmin is going to move away from the bears is if Cottonelle moves away from the puppy and vice versa.

You nailed it right on the head.

Sicgirl I beg you, on behalf of the human race, lock the Charmin marketing executives in a room and beat some sense into them. Or just beat them, I'm not picky.

The Cottonelle puppy works because it's cute, not disgusting and ridiculous like the bears.

Not sure if Sicgirl has the same experience of how people receive research as me (though I suspect she might) but clients often look to research to confirm what they have already decided upon rather than listening to advice against that particular element.

If they're dead set on the bears, it would take a massive amount of research to change that.

Well, you'll actually be taking down P&G then which oddly enough also makes those Old Spice commercials you all love :)

I hate the Axe commercials

Their commercials are horrible, but I endorse the said products. Especially their "Whatever" hair paste. The stuff is magic as I can finally pull off my bed-head style w/ pizzazz. Thank you, Axe!

I haven't had to style my hair since I went with the viking look, but I too remember a time when I tried to get my hair to stick up... just... right... I don't remember what I looked like, but I'm sure it was horrible.

My hair refuses to conform to any and all hair products.  It's like trying to apply a band-aid to lava flow; it can be done, certainly, but it's not worth the risk, and it looks silly just to try.

What about that one commercial, where the woman cleans the table with wax?  I saw that, and I darn near puked.

If I had seen that ad, I WOULD have puked.

How old is that ad?  I saw something on Youtube with some old '70s commercial with a kid eating peanut butter and mayonnaise and Favor Polish.  That it?

I hate any of those furniture place adverts. They seem to go on for hours with that horrible music. Just get off.

Oh the irony. I'm reading your post and have the TV on in the background. What should come on? A commercial for a furniture consignment place.. With bad music!
