Double Entendre Contest
Something Fausta sent gave me an idea for a contest:
The boss of a Madison Avenue advertising agency called a spontaneous staff meeting in the middle of a particularly stressful week. (This is one pretty sharp boss!) When everyone gathered, the boss, who understood the benefits of having fun, told the burnt out staff the purpose of the meeting was to have a quick contest. The theme: Viagra advertising slogans. The only rule was they had to use past ad slogans, originally written for other products that captured the essence of Viagra. Slight variations were acceptable. About 7 minutes later, they turned in their suggestions and created a Top 10 List. With all the laughter and camaraderie, the rest of the week went very well for everyone! The top 10 were:
10. Viagra, Whaazzzz up!
9. Viagra, The quicker pecker picker upper.
8. Viagra, like a rock !
7. Viagra, When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.
6. Viagra , Be all that you can be.
5. Viagra, Reach out and touch someone.
4. Viagra, Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.
3. Viagra, Home of the whopper!
2. Viagra, We bring good things to Life!
And the unanimous number one slogan:
1. This is your peepee. This is your peepee on drugs
Go ahead, people. Do your wurst in the comments section.

"TAKSing" might actually mean something to me - Texas Assessment of Knowledge & Skills... It's the standardized testing done here in the State of Texas for grading student, school & teacher performance. Given there are multiple exams (starting in third grade with reading/language arts & math, continuing - and adding exams - up through high school).

"The Power To Be Your Best" (Apple)
I'll let everyone fill in the blanks when I mention simply - 'Bic's slogan'.
Burger King has more than one offering, I think - "It takes two hands to hold a Whopper"
"When you've got it, flaunt it" (Braniff Airways)
They could take a tip from Dial Soap - "People who like people like Viagra"
I think these companies have already stolen from Delta Airways - "Ready when you are"
"Any time, any place, any where" (Martini)
"So much more to enjoy" (Pepsodent)
"Wot a lot I got" (Smarties)
"Expanding Possibilities" (HP)
"Go to work on an egg" (British Egg Marketing Board)
Yup, more pickles - "At last. A pickle that bites back" (Marcus Valley Pickles)
'Why Viagra? Because 'The first time is never the best'" (Campari)
This just sounds utterly dirty - prudes please look away - "Feel the Velvet" (Black Velvet Whiskey)
I guess there might be a market for a slogan based on that of Courage Beer - "It's what your right arm's for"
Ericsson really is only off by a letter...I'll let you figure out which letter to remove - "Make yourself heard"
Again, prudes please move along to a nicer comment: "It's so big, you've gotta grin to get it in" (Wagon Wheels)
It's probably not fair to use this one, because I've never heard of the product, but I couldn't resist:
"Soft, strong and very long" (something called Andrex Toilet Tissue - c'mon, you laughed, I know you did!)

I'm not wondering about the extra line breaks -- I'm wondering why you thought there were prudes and "nicer" comments anywhere in this mosh pit...
Posted by: BillT at August 17, 2009 03:33 PM
Great slogans! Now I don't feel quite so bad about some of the ones I thought of (and didn't post).
What was that toothpaste that had the Danish looking blonde in the commercial in the 70s?
All I recall is the tagline:
"Mmmmmmm.... it's a great feeling!"
Posted by: Cassandra at August 17, 2009 03:36 PM
See. I did it again, completely without intending anything like that. At least I wasn't talking about myself this time...unlike that hayride story...
