The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


If You’re An Adult Who Constantly Wets Yourself, You Might As Well Get Pissed To Try Forget About It …

A while back I wrote about how stressful it must be to suffer from incontinence and how brilliant supermarkets are at packaging – and then selling us – unrelated products because they exploit the ‘romantic notions’ we have in our heads about certain moments and situations, even though they will never, ever turn out as we hoped.

Well recently I saw something in a supermarket that linked the learnings of both these posts and while I appreciate it could have been the work of some evil, genius joker … I still think it shows more consumer insight and cross-selling brilliance than most people in adland could ever hope to achieve.

You’re weird.

You know the alternative is “I’m normal” and I can’t think of anything more insulting to be called. So thank you.

Just to be clear Rob, it wasn’t meant as a compliment.

Rob is the master of reframing.

Spin.

I can’t wait till they start grouping big underwear (for her) with porn mags (for him) or packets of weed with packets of doritos.

I didn’t realise you were living in the Netherlands now David.

Comment by George

Yes … when did supermarkets start selling that sort of stuff Dave? 10 points for attempting to take it all one stage further. 1 point for what you actually came up with.

Comment by Rob

Maybe alchopop brands should be doing this as a joint promotion. Fits their audience and their habits.

Comment by Pete

Your best comment ever Pete.

Comment by DH

what the fuck happened to you?

Comment by andy@cynic

In Robert’s case, it would be a joint promotion with Lockets, the cough sweet, and an incontinence pad manufacturer. Sorry Robert, I couldn’t resist.

Comment by George
