I have a minor rant about the entire line of Puffs Plus commercials that feature the animated children.  I believe these commercials have been airing for years; at least as long as I can remember.  I did a search for this and didn't get any results.

Has anybody noticed how the child who has the Puffs Plus tissue curls it over the top portion of their nose and wipes there as if they have nostrils that are facing the sky?  They never wipe the bottom of the noses where snot is likely to accumulate; even the child in the commercial below that has the 'other brand' tissue wipes the bottom of her nose like every human in real life does.  That's like having the bear from the Charmin toilet paper commercial wipe its butt normally with the 'other brand', but then wipe its mouth with the brand they are advertising as if that's where they need wiping after a trip to the bathroom...it is important to be anatomically correct in these commercials!

I have.  It's annoying.
 
At least, now, the noses stay on their faces.  There was an old one, where the noses came completely off.
 
In the clip above, they dab beside their noses, which still won't work for actual nostril snot.

LOL

Yes it does sort of BUG ME that they just place it on their nose like it's aching or something. However if they were to be totally realistic, they would depicting them BLOWING their nose which would be pretty disgustingDead. It wouldn't hurt them to have the wiping their nose FROM THE BOTTOM!!

I think these type of ads been airing since AT LEAST 2005.


One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Even more realism, would be an entirely new product: Puffs Sleeves.

No, not puffy sleeves (Seinfeld Alert!) but disposable sleeves, with or without cuffs, made of tissue. 
 
They could also invent an elbow-version, for coughs.
