Ad Insult To Injury

Sometimes, when you take two bad things and mix them together, you get something very good. The classic example is two poisons -- chlorine and sodium. Together, they make salt, an essential component of life.

Most times, though, two negatives don't multiply and become a positive. Instead, they add -- and you get the sum of two evils.

For example, a when widely reviled commercial product is partnered with a horrific earworm from over a decade ago, you get this abomination:





One commenter said this is why terrorists hate us. I'm with the terrorists.

On the other hand, sometimes a commercial just blows you away. Here's one that combines fantastic imagery with truly terrific music (created just for this spot)...





...and then you find out just what the product is for.

Why, why, why?

Jim Addison:

Commercials . . . they almost never make sense. The ones for "feminine products" are the worst.

In my life, I took many walks with my late father, through fields and woods, along the banks of ponds and creeks . . . but I just can't imagine how at any point in those strolls I could have turned to him and said, "Dad, I don't know, it's just that lately I haven't felt so fresh . . . "

The old guy probably would have suggested a peppermint . . .
