To market to market [Jul. 5th, 2013|09:08 pm]
I'm having a "veg on the couch" kind of day. Indulging my "squee, wedding!" silliness with hours of TLC on in the background. ("I Found the Gown" and "Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids" -- no, I'm not proud. And not proud.)

But just now there was an ad for Cottonelle Moist Wipes. In which it was explained that one cannot be "really clean" without a moist wipe.

Wow. Just think of all the centuries of "not really clean" humans that have managed to survive. How did we manage?

I know that these products have to seek new market all the time. But watching this ad, in which a woman climbs in the shower, fully clothed, and shows how you can't wash without water? The absurdity just cracked me up.

I hope that this will be a non-starter. Please, America, don't be this dumb.

Haha, yeah, how has the human race managed to keep clean before disposable products??? How did baby bottoms stay dry before super-absorbent gel-filled diapers, and how did women manage to keep menstrual fluids from running down their legs before chemical-laden, scented and sterilized disposable tampons?? Oh yeah..cloth. But who wants cheap, reusable, and environmentally responsible?
