Enzyte Trivia

weather: light rain
outside: 7.1°C
mood: dirty
Really useless trivia:

There's a commercial where Bob, the Enzyte Dude, is in Japan sitting at the end of the table in a restaurant-like place, supposedly bargaining with some Japanese businessmen. It's available here.

The old Japanese guy is actually speaking Cantonese.

I recognize the lip movements. He's saying: 一百萬 ("one million"), 兩百萬 ("two million") and then 百萬 ("five million" with special emphasis on the "five").

After I confirmed this to myself and pointed it out to </a></b></a>, I had to turn the channel away when we see those commercials starting. The freaky grin is bad enough, but sitting through so many "raising" and "upping" puns, I end up feeling vaguely violated.

haha, wow. I now have strong desire to see this commercial. But I can understand why that'd drive you insane and end with that "violated" feeling. There was this commercial on Univision (a Spanish network) and this woman with the largest lips possible says everything practically in slow motion. That bothered me a little, until I wanted to kill her for licking her lips in slow motion and going "pessssshcado", which was an attack on the word for fish (pescado), and I was yelling at the TV screen.

I suppose that there's something about smug emphasis that kills a little bit of our souls.

It's available here as a WMV. It's really fuzzy though... =P

Oh god, that's a horrible commercial! Those Enzyte commercials are really annoying. I wonder if his blood is filled with teeth whitener...
