Nasal spray with a difference

August 25, 2005 8:06 PM

I’ve been hearing a particular radio ad on the drive home for the past week now. It’s for a nasal spray to help with premature ejaculation. That’s right folks – a medication that you spray into your nose to cure problems in and around your groin.

A few points worth noting though:

  1. Would men be so affected by this that they would buy a drug that they only heard about on the radio? ‘Cos as far as I know I haven’t seen or read anything about this anywhere. And you get a lot of “weird” sites if you google it.
  2. The ad is constantly being played around 5:30-6:00pm. This begs the question – do men usually think about the bad sex that they had been having on the drive home?
  3. Is it wise to remind a man of his sexual dysfunction and thus making him depressed while he is operating a 1-tonne steel can?

Hmm, I wonder.

    The advertisers probably chose that timeslot because it’s drivetime – men heading home from work, sitting in their cars in traffic… Wait a sec, Perth doesn’t get traffic jams, does it? But seriously, they’re more likely to be listening to the radio in the car than any other time of the day, esp. if they’re stuck in an office without access to the radio.

    Peak hours we do but I guess they chose the timeslot because of the reasons that you listed. And not for anything else. It’s still a strange ad to be hearing on the radio tho. 🙂

    The ad had this part –
    announcer: have your woman go from … (female voice going “Ugh!”) .. to this (female voice going “Oooh!”).
