I don't think the advertisers wanted this to happen but every time I see certain ads,it makes me want to buy their competition.When I see Weight Watchers' ad,I want to save Hunger.he is so cute , I love him.when I see Cable vs Fios,I want to keep my cable.I prefer the guy who plays Cable .Well,I have always liked Red Heads.and everytime I see both Quiznos And subway , it makes me want to eat Anywhere but at their restaurants. How about you? Is there an ad that makes you want to buy the competition?

Yes there is.....the one with Jamie Lee Curtis....the yogurt that makes you regular.....give me a break! It takes two weeks? Prunes work in less then a day! And I can't imagine what it might taste like but just the subject of the product makes me want to eat something else....or have just plain yogurt!

Actually yes!! OK it didn't so much make me want to buy the competition as to pray never to need the product. One morning, when my husband and I were still living in Arizona, we were just waking up, and we were in the mood. So right in the middle of our forplay, a famiilliar song came on TV in the background. It sounded like Viva Las Vegas. We weren't weren't paying any attention to the lyrics UNTIL they started to sing VIVA VIAGRA. Oh geez!!! That ruined the mood for a few hours. LOL And we were laughing so hard we probably coudln't have "done anything" anyway. haha
