A song composed to promote Lynx anti-perspirants has topped the UK charts.

This is why I don't live in the UK.

What's NSFW about this drivel?

Tried reading it but rhetoric sans content puts me to sleep.

In the US, sex sells deodorant.

In the rest of the world, deororant sells sex...

Nothing NSFW about it, IMHO.

Maybe we should start using bulging, pert, glistening weeners to enhance sales.

A snorting bull mounts a busty blonde, who pleasures another bull with her hands while gripping a Big Mac in her teeth. Bull semen splashes up and forms itself into the McDonald's golden arches...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOkay

Excuse me, I need to go spend some time with my hand lotion and a dirty sock.

I've always said there's not enough bestiality links on fark.
Perhaps a new category?

How could anyone think that this is a good idea for an ad? Would this make any human being hungry?

Mmmmmmmm... bull semen! I'm freakin' starvin!

This has to be an all time record for lowest comment to click ratio (though I just raised it quite a bit)

Lol! bull semen...

You guys don't think it could be a joke do you?

THIS ARTICLE HAS MADE ME HUNGRY FOR SEMEN
 
2004-12-24 12:42:29 AM  
I think I'm glad the the link was down after all....
 
2004-12-24 12:52:54 AM  
That McDonald's ad is just itching to be Photoshopped. Anyone?
 
2004-12-24 12:57:01 AM  
Where can I see the "snorting bull" ad??

"A song composed to promote Lynx anti-perspirants has topped the UK charts."

This is especially amazing considering the small size of the target market. How many people in the UK could possibly own sweaty lynxes?
 
2004-12-24 01:34:19 AM  
That was the worst article I've ever read.
 
2004-12-24 01:49:57 AM  
Thanks, submitter.

That's three minutes of my life I'll never get back.

"That was the worst article I've ever read."

Word Man.

But I was laughing so hard about the bull thing.
 
2004-12-24 02:08:16 AM  
pert buttocks?

does he mean "tight ass"?
 
2004-12-24 03:03:37 AM  
LAME!!!!!
 
2004-12-24 03:33:48 AM  
omg....that's the hardest I've laughed in...what was the question, has 12 been picked?
 
2004-12-24 05:00:25 AM  
Pretty trite article, but I have to agree that big-titted models in tank tops and little shorts are so common in advertising, it's probably about as effective as saying "new and improved."
 
2004-12-24 05:21:27 AM  
The article goes on and on about the horrors of combining advertising and editorials, and what's at the very bottom? A link telling you that the editorial came from the print version of the New Statesman, and a convenient link for you to click to subscribe. Up to 45% off the newsstand price!

Huh.
 
2004-12-24 06:34:34 AM  
see the headline is funny cause you all clicked on it and read the farking whole article expecting something sexually stimulating, and the article is about......... yeah. i thought it was pretty funny myself.
 
2004-12-24 06:43:20 AM  
Since when do we owe it to marketers to watch/read/listen to their ads? That seems to be an unquestioned assumption in this article.

/MUST KILL LINCOLN
 
2004-12-24 07:24:08 AM  
When I clicked, I was told I needed a subscription in order to access the article. But after reading what the rest of you folks wrote here, I'm rather proud of the fact that I DON'T have a subscription.

Pert buttocks?

people shampoo their asses?

I am both turned on and disgusted with myself at the same time. I want pics and a punishment!
