Advertising Going Down The Toilet


Sony’s getting tongue-in-cheek with this ad for their hand held PSP. As our friend over at Another Queer Jewish Buddist points out, toilet humor’s become a common trend in advertising.

Why oh why are advertisers so interested in what’s happening in men’s rooms? Because, as Larry Craig taught us, men’s rooms are interesting.

      Lol, very amusing.

      Note that the boy has wet his trousers at the end!

      Maybe i’m being a tad touchy but this has to be the tedious thing i’ve seen in a very long time.
      This is not funny in the slightest.

      Eh. I think there have been far more homophobic commercials. No one seemed outwardly bugged (or creepy)–to me, it just read like a typical double entendre that’s funny because it’s not what you think.

      And also, penis metaphors, guys loving a video game so much they bring it to the urinal, and pants-wetting are always hilarious.

      I don’t think anyone said the ad was homophobic. It’s cute, but nothing great. Seems perfect for the target audience.

      I didn’t say it was homophobic either, Gregg. I was responding to Faghag, who was offended by it. As a queer dude I didn’t see much to get upset about. I though it was funny, but nothing close to inappropriate.
