Guy carrying around a giant glass beaker of gatorade-green piss while a series of side effects is read. We are supposed to be impressed that the beaker gets smaller.

You just know that everyone around is disgusted, and that thing is going to smack into something, and that urine or acid or whatever is going to go everywhere.

Go away

WinkThanks for cranking this thread up.
The Uloric commercial has long  bothered me; I've never been able to find a video of it, but I'm sure doesn't want it out there - they know people will immediately draw comparisons between their whitebread bottle-carrying sufferer and his twin brother, 'Anton Jackson' (find your way into roughly 4.15 of the PaWolf-supplied treasure, below - you'll see what I'm talking about).
if you can't beyond the 'imbedding' error.

After hearing about all of the random sulfuric acid attacks that permanently disfigure people's faces, this commercial takes on a whole new level of stupid.

I always notice how the guy has goes from a gigantic beaker to a slightly less gigantic bigger (which would still be unbelievably irritating to have to carry around).  If you actually wanted people to buy your medicine, wouldn't you want the beaker to get really small - like pocket sized?  I just find it to be a total failure at what they were trying to accomplish.

Actually, I do believe that the beaker has a cork in the top of it......

God, I need a life....... Cry

Or maybe just to NOT see this damn commercial so much! LOL

I hate how this guy is wandering round the city, picking up a paper, etc. and no one seems to notice that he is hauling around this big beaker of Shrek piss. 

Not to mention, when they are picking up their luggage at, what looks like, a carousel in an airport.... am I to believe that TSA let this douche get on a plane with a big beaker of God-knows-what... while I am forced to surrender my $22 face cream because it is a 10th of an ounce over the carry-on limit???????? 

Go to hell Uloric. Your commercial is full of shenanigans and it makes no sense. Thumbs Down

So I think the message here is, "take our medicine and you'll carry around a giant beaker of Hi-C Ecto-Cooler."

Seems kind of inconvenient. And with all the calories in a Hi-C drink, not a well balanced choice.

This commercial pisses me off too (pun not intended) -- why is that "deuche" carrying around this huge gigantic Erlenmyer flask of Shrek uranation to begin with?

I simply don't know what a big Erlenmyer flask of green pee has to do with gout anyway. OuchAngryOuch

The commercial is bad, but I think the green stuff is supposed to represent excess uric acid.
That's what causes gout.
 
Seems like there a million ways to do this commercial better especially when no one understands the premise.

This. Nobody is going to question why this guy is carrying around a giant beaker because the beaker is only meant to be symbolic. He's not literally carrying around a beaker of green liquid, it just represents that he has gout and that the medicine, while not completely eradicating it, is managing it.

These commercials are the ways the drug companies like to sensationalize these illnesses to get you to go to your doctor and pony up for their medications.  Carrying around that gigantic flask of green acid is supposed to worry people.
