First, we have the Motrin ad that seems to have enraged baby-wearing moms all across the country. I’m not a mom so it doesn’t really offend me that much but I have to say, the tone in the commercial comes across as if the viewer is dumb. Watch it for yourself and see if you’re offended by it.
Next we have a spoof on the original commercial with a totally different source of back pain. Let me know if this one was more offensive than the first.
One thing is for certain, the publics outcry from sites such as YouTube and Twitter forced the advertising agency that works with Motrin to pull the ad from their website along with their various media outlets. However, the ad is printed in magazines that are on news stands. I’m wondering if I should purchase one to save it as a collectible?
