Have you seen the new TV ad for Zegerid OTC? I think it's some sort of antacid or something - I wasn't really paying attention because the commercial itself is SO weird.
This guy comes out, talks about Zegerid, blah, blah, blah, and then says something like, "Let me show you how it works."
And then he just takes off his shirt.
Ok, wow, this commercial just got interesting! At least, I thought so - random guys stripping out of their clothes is ALWAYS appreciated in any commercial. Really. Any. One. At. All. At. Any. Time. Any. Where. Thank. You.
Then the guy proceeds to grab a brush and some paint and paint on his chest (?) images that explain how Zegerid works.
I know, those ad guys were seriously smoking something. Hello, weird?
But, here's the weirdest part: the guy they chose for the commercial has the most asexual chest I have ever seen on any guy ever. I mean, I understand what the makers of the product were going for - they don't want some hot guy flashing his chesty man-meat at the drooling viewers and have them forget all about what they are selling. The problem is, they made the decision to HAVE HIM TAKE OFF HIS SHIRT AND PAINT ON IT. Nothing they do can change that fact, so why didn't they at least let the guy retain some semblance of, I don't know - MANLINESS to his appearance?
His weird, fully shaved, oddly not developed yet not flabby yet not woman pre-/post-pubescent dough chest is just flat out disturbing.
I now need a shower.
And not in a good way.
