Constipation Marketing

I think constipation products need a whole new ad campaign makeover. This is the age of ‘say it like it is’. They need to be more on the cutting edge!

Come on, let’s have some fun…VE has a number of print ad pitches to give them:







I should have gone into marketing!

I prefer something far more profane. Think about it and let's see you take it to the next level. THink outside the box. Insert other business bullshit phraseology here.

RED MOJO said...

Holy Shit, Now this is some highbrow potty humor.

Bee said...

Now I know why the ladies I work with have shit for brains!! Do you get a commission for every package of Ex-Lax? Cuz I'm buying a wheel barrel full!

Mother Theresa said...

Lol. Makes the ads much more fun than they usually are. I'm sure none of the guys running in front of the bulls over here need any help. In fact, they'd probably be better off buying adult diapers beforehand. There, now you have a new topic for your next post. ;)

Kanrei said...

Exlax works; would we shit you?

Exlax- when going number two ranks number one

Exlax- why put off for tomorrow what can be done today?

Exlax- a running gag

lime said...

the skeptical consumer might be inclined to say 'yer shittin me"

VE said...

sornie - I pooped outside the box, is that a good start?

red mojo - Highbrow potty humor...I like it.

bee - Sounds like you'll have to get a business account with them for your work! ha ha

theresa - Yes, nothing like running in front of a bunch of bulls says "I'm stupid"...

kan - Ha ha. Great ones. You need to be in marketing too!

lime - And you should reply "That's a good thing!"

leelee said...

something smells!

iamnot said...

You might want to hold off on that career change to marketing.

VE said...

leelee - And it's not the Ex-Lax! ha ha

iamnot - What are you talking about, you don't think they'll buy off on these? Can't they at least make the list of ads pulled due to controversy?

EmmaK said...

I think there is also a market for the EXLAXMOBILE targeted at the green consumer. You would tie yourself to a lawnmower nude then take an ex lax and spray your garden with liquid shit, thus fertilizing your garden in one easy swoop! you like?

Alice said...

Are you constipated? Is this your outlet? Might I suggest a Fleet enema instead?

Jacki said...

HaHa! Now I see what you mean about your post tying in to mine...hehe.

But it does make me wonder what jokes go on inside the marketing dempartment before the actual ads come out.

GC said...

the "I shit you not" was my fave

VE said...

emmak - You are a genious! Ancillary fun with that when somebody video tapes it and then puts it on You Tube. The fun never ends...

alice - No, not me. Why I had a lovely tapered....never mind...too much information

jacki - Yeah, I'll bet there are some great ideas squashed down by executives that don't have a sense of humor. I'm sure I'd just get fired if I were in marketing. I may have to explore this venue with posts a little more though.

gc - It's simple, it's direct!

MJ said...

*applause*

Jeff said...

This is one crappy post VE. Anybody could write shit like this. Quit being such a tightass and try to come up with something that doesn't stink, would ya?






;-)

VE said...

mj - Thank you, thank you. I'd like to thank the little people that helped me but they're little people and so I cannot mention names...

jeff - Yeah, but it takes a real dumbshit to actually post this kind of crap! I am that kind of dumbshit!

Nessa said...

You are a marketing genius. No shit. Really, I'm not shitin' you.

Jeffrey Ellis said...

When capitalism meets scatology, all kinds of crazy shit can happen. Nicely done, VE.

Megan said...

What a bunch of shit-talkers.

Kurt said...

Have you considered a job in advertising?

Serena Joy said...

Yes, you should have gone into marketing. Who knew constipation could be such fun? I shit you not, I'd trot out and buy your heavy-duty Ex Lax.:P

VE said...

nessa - And I'm glad you didn't shit me!

jeffery - Thanks, I think I'll go get shit faced to celebrate...

megan - I am the king of shit talkers!!!!! Should I brag about that?

kurt - I should, shouldn't I? I'd probably just get fired for not toning it down and lack of ability to be serious...

sj - Ha! Trot...nice addition to this crap...

The Offended Blogger said...

lol! You *should* go into marketing. There is still time! :)

Mr Farty said...

Crap, Jeff beat me to it!

VE said...

offended - Thanks. I'd probably get some cuddly kid account and all my humor would be 'inappropriate' and they'd fire me...

mr. farty - Jeff lives to get the best comments first!

Lori said...

I can't think of anything worth a shit to say....

Hale McKay said...

Up Shit Creek without a paddle?
Ex-Lax will have you going like cattle!


All the good shit was taken already.

Excellent post idea, VE.

Diesel said...

Ex-lax sounds like something that used to be an airport.

G-Man said...

Haven't travelled down the old dirt road lately?
Did you take a detour from the Hershey Hwy?
Never thought you'd miss the color brown so much?...

You always make one think VE....G

VE said...

lori - That says it all!

hale - Ha ha ha. Them cattle can shit, that's fer sure! Good one!

diesel - Thank you for flying Has-Been Airlines, we'll be landing in the former LA airport, EX-LAX in just a few moments... You're right, it does work!

g-man - And you clearly had your creative thinking cap on this time! Nice ones! ha ha ha

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

"I shit you not" is the best! Still laughing!!

VE said...

arizona - That one seems to be the most popular here!

Practically Joe said...

VE ... You sold me ... It worked!
I'd say more but ...
Got to go, got to go, got to go go go ...

VE said...

joe - Here's hoping your done, done, done!

SarahM said...

colbymarshall said...

"This is some serious shit"

VE said...
