Where has all the E-D gone?
Anyone who has a semblance of a life will tell you it's hard to stay current on positively everything. So along with my ignorance about foreign companies running U. S. port facilities (betcha you didn't know that either) it came as a bit of shock to see Mark Martin's #6 car sporting the AAA logo instead of the Viagra logo we've come to expect. But that led to another shocking revelation: I can't remember the last time I saw ANY E-D drug advertised on TV. Did I miss something?
Used to be you couldn't turn on the TV without seeing that little hussy touting Levitra. She was always just a little too slutty to be somebody's wife so I always assumed she was representing all the mistresses of the world who weren't getting their fair share. Now that the spokesmodel gig is over I figure she's working the door at some Kit Kat Club somewhere - Hoboken, maybe? I'll give Bayer Pharmaceuticals credit though, it was the sluttiness factor that made me remember Levitra commercials over all the rest. I have a vague memory of people lounging in outdoor bathtubs and some guy throwing a football through the tire swing but after the deluge of E-D advertising, nothing else remains in the old memory banks.
Usually the Web has the answer to every burning question, but search as I may the only thing that I ran across about the sudden disappearance of E-D advertising was an article that said the NFL was ending its relationship with E-D drugs - which, on the face of it seems a bit ingenuous but who am I to argue? But back to Mr. Martin, I'm relieved that Roush Racing has gone back to an automotive-related sponsor. There is a time and a place for drug advertising (the time is 6:30 PM and the place is Nightly News) but NASCAR isn't it (except for maybe Prilosec because having to race with Tony Stewart would give anybody acid indigestion.)
The sizeable gap left by the exit of E-D drug advertising from the marketplace has been filled with drugs to help us sleep. Levitra has been replaced by Lunesta and Cialis replaced by Ambien CR. I guess the awful truth is that after staying up for all that time (after four hours call your physician) America needed some well-earned rest. Sleep tight everyone.
