I don’t believe that many American men have Erectile Dysfunction!
I mean COME ON. I can’t watch a any sporting event anymore with out being inundated with Viagra, Cialis and two bathtubs on a cliff. I wonder how do men watch sports with their sons anymore? That has to be uncomfortable! ” UM Dad? What’s erectile dysfinction?…and can I catch it?… am I doomed to get it?”
Now if I were a man, and THE organ I have that symbolizes my virility and gives me sensual pleasure was not working…you can bet my ass would be on a phone with my Dr. SO FAST…they would feel the wind in the whole neighborhood! So is it REALLY neccessary and effective to bludgeon the public with incessant advertising? I mean how many men would forget? Oh yeah that’s right! My Dick doesn’t work! Shit, I need to call a Doc!
I understand it takes alot of cash to R&D a drug, I do really, I am afterall trying to raise $$ for a treatment to save my own life. And this is why I am bit more sensitive to this deluge of ED advertising that the average Joe. If We took the money from 1 ad per game, especially the big games, say oh STANLEY CUP FINALS for example or any NFL/NBA/ Baseball Game; and we put that money into research for orphan diseases, perhaps even ALS. I wonder at the difference an infusion of capital like that would make?
Currently, most of the research money in the ALS world is being raised by people dying from ALS and their families. Can we get a little love here? I would appreciate a blank screen for 15 seconds announcing that the $ that would have been paid for yet another 90 sec ED ad was being redirected by the Drug Co. AND the Network into research for Stage 2 Drug trials say at ALS-TDI or to Augies Quest or to some other established research facility who is devoted to an accelerated schedule to develope a therapy for ALS and other orphan diseases. This would make a difference for me! The network would gain goodwill, in the eyes of the public and only loose 15 secs of airtime, and the drug company would also get some goodwill and stop looking like greedy maleficent castrating whores.
