WonderDrug (A TV Drug Ad Parody)

A while back someone pointed out how funny those direct to consumer ads for drugs are. They have 15 seconds of bright shinny benefits, and then 15 seconds of fast spoken warnings about severe side effects.

So here's my crack at a direct to consumer ad for the latest "WonderDrug":

The ad starts out with a pleasent voice saying "take WonderDrug and your life will be so much better".

In the background there are fields of green grass, sunshine, and laughing children. Kindly old people tell how they got themselvs back with WonderDrug, and pleasent young people tell how they can be a good parent to their children, or a good provider to their family again, thanks to the glories of WonderDrug.

Then comes the fast speaking, monotone, warning blurb.

"WonderDrug has been known to cause problems such as heart attacks, stroke, kidney and liver failure. People with any health problems at all should ask their doctor and think twice before taking WonderDrug.

WonderDrug has been known to cause seizures and violent hemorrhaging from every orifice. If you notice blood spewing from any of your orifices while taking WonderDrug, report this symptom to your doctor.

Also, there have been reports of spontaneous human combustion of patients taking WonderDrug. Therefore, it is not recommended that you smoke cigarettes or pump your own gas while taking WonderDrug. See package insert for details."

Then it's back to the laughing children, and the warm pleasant voice asks, "The only thing to wonder about, is why you are not taking WonderDrug! Ask your doctor for a free sample"
