Ads For Male Enhancement Pills

Are the rest of you seeing these ads on TV, thankfully so far usually late at night, for a male enhancement pill called "Extenze"? The first time I noticed it I was here on my computer and my TV was on Comedy Central so I thought it was a comedy sketch, something like you'd see on SNL but it's a real commercial. The say repeatedly that this product will increase the size of "that certain part of the male body"! I've seen it many times on all the cable stations, including CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. The longer version has a male client telling the female spokesperson how well it worked and how he got a lot bigger. She asks him if he's embarrassed to say that and he says he isn't. Is this going a bit too far? It's funny to watch alone but it would be embarrassing to see in mixed company! Annie

My reaction: /facepalm. And a long drawn out "sigh..." If I was to see this with company I'd be saying the same thing for other "enhancement" products. "Uh huh..." or "Yea....."/sarcasm Now why do these enhancement folks waste their time on something minor (or somewhat minor depending on the view) and why not go after something more pressing... like Height? XD That person would become the first trillionaire. Just saying with a little sarcasm but still has a lot of truth... -_-

I am with you. I think it is distasteful to put on public tv. I don't want to see that come on while I have other people around.

I can't wait until a few years from now when they discover the side effects from these pills! I know if I were a man I wouldn't take a chance. Annie

I've seen the commercial and wish it were gone.The commercial runs between every darn break and it's gotten to be annoying.The whole thing looks like it was created by someone with a home video cam.I even believe the three main characters are family members and unattractive to boot;especially "Dr.Stein" He looks like Frankenstein.Who would buy a product from that guy?

First off, If those pills really worked, everyone would use them like Viagra. Secondly, thats why most of the commercials are at night or at a time when children arent big on watching TV.Every one is trying to make a buck these days. I agree with you it is too much. People shouldnt be worrying about how long it is, as long as it works. lol dl
