Just what do you suppose the people who put this brochure together were really thinking when they decided on this photo?

This arrived in my mail on Saturday....and I took a look at that girls tush and thought, 'What the hell.....' and then I saw that this was a weight loss advertisement!! HUH??????

What great mind's sat around and thought this up, do you suppose? I mean, I'm ALWAYS interested in Weight Loss products....(interested, but rarely do I order them....), but this is the first time I've ever gotten something like this in the mail that was so...In Your Face, and basically looks like an ad for Hooters, I mean, it's like an advertisement for a Pole Dancing Bar!.....Well, you know what I mean...

The most frightening part is, there isn't one word about what the ingredient or ingredients are in these tablets....just that you only need four of them. And you mean, if I just use 4 of those tablets my buns will look like the girl in the photo? Notice how this young woman has no face....!

Do I really want to look like that?

Nooooo, on second thought, I don't think I want to be all buns, with no face.


If you were going to name this product, what would you call it?

I would love to know whatthe ingredients are. I would love to know who was behind that marketing scheme. And I'd really like to know if it works!

buffi--Yeah, Yeah Yeah! I agree, but I sure wish it were true that all you need is 4 mealey little tablets to lose all the weight you want! (lol)

dena--Should I get some, and see? Talk about Russian Roulette!

Just another gimmick! I'd call it
"Another weight loss dream pill."

Maybe all your waist scoots down into your booty with this medication! It is amazing how many American's waste their money on junk like that.

I'd call it:
Mushy Tushy Be-Gone

I don't take anything unless it's prescribed, or totally organic.

I wonder, if you only want to lose 12 pounds if you only need 2 tablets?

Ridiculous promises and with no evidence except a photo. The worse thing is that people actually believe it.

had this to say:

In tiny little words......"The photograph above does not depict the results you will have from these pills. In all likelihood you will choke when trying to swallow these quarter size wafers or garbage, if you don't choke then they will certainly swell up from the 42 gallons of liquid you will have to consume to actually swallow them. Congratulations you are now POORER and the only weight you lost was from you wallet."

Chance to Slim...More like Slim Chance I think

How gullible do you have to be to buy these products?

Perhaps they glue your mouth shut for 3 weeks that'll make you lose 24lbs :o)

had this to say:

I think 'd call them:
"Another Con"
or maybe
"Gimme your money"
or possibly
"Death wish" - as we can't see the ingredients, the only way 4 tablets could make you lose weight like that is to be a serious poison. Major vomiting, combined with an inability to eat for a few weeks will sure drop those pounds. If you're really luck you'll lose the weight for life. Of course, your life may not be very long.....

These things really annoy me. Everything about them is wrong. the concept they are selling, the advertising/marketing, the danger inherent in taking them etc.

Thankfully, most of them are illegal in the UK now - if you are selling them as "cures, remedies or preventatives" they need to be licenced & have scientific evidence of their effects. It doesn't stop the internet spammers though.

you know, i see that whore on tv advertising trim spa, and frankly i wouldnt ever use it, even if it was the only pill that would ever work for me, just because that woman is gross!

i can guarentee with the add you showed that fat women who need to lose weight did not come up with this add! however they did come up with the gym, curves, and my best friend has lost 12 inches in 8 weeks there!

They fail to tell you that each tablet is the size of a wading pool...
What would I name it? I don't know, but You came up with a great name for a "pole dancing bar": In Your Face. Or, given the idea,maybe Hooters would change THEIR name.

I'd call it "Buns R Us." You can get yours at "Bimbos R Us."

First, been busy. Just got back to the liar post. Very good! Lots of fun. You've lead some exciting life!

I'd call it "Suicide in a Bottle." 'Cause if it worked (which of course we know it doesn't) women would take twenty of them all at once.

had this to say:

First off, it's going to take more than 4 dinner plate sized pills to make my bum to look like the one in the picture!

Second, who on earth is going to believe that taking a pill is going to give you that bum! And geez, get the dental floss out of your crack! I hate that!

Third, what would I call it....
BS in a Bottle!

Tuesday, December 13, 2005 at 11:23:00 AM PST 

had this to say:

I'd call it "I just found out how to make a load of money by scamming you!"

And I would suspect that the girl in the photo has never had to take a diet pill or watch her weight, of course. I would NEVER buy any of that stuff or any other diet preparation. If there was anything good on the market, we would hear about it through the media first!

P.S. I forgot to tell you; no, I never did get to stay at the Dunes. I think it still exists, but has been remodeled many times since then - nearly rebuilt).

I think 'All Buns, No Face' is an excellent name, OOL :-)

I have lost 13 pounds. But you don't want to try my diet...Surgery!

If all it took was pills, we would all look great.

Thanks for coming by Thurs.

I'd call it "Ass No More."

I did the "which one is a lie" at my blog on Tuesdays post. It was fun! I credited you with the idea.

I think those tight-butt tablets work by affecting your vision. They make you look like you are looking in those circus mirrors where everyone looks taller and skinnier.

I'm not sure what title I would give the picture but a slogan might be: "One bun in a pan is worth two on the beach."

I'm here from Michele. I read your Liar Liar response. My personal favorite heart throb on the Rams was Roman Gabriel. Oh, and your cat Mooney "props" just like our ragdoll Nicky.

Your spending too much time Blogging,LOL! Have you seen the TV commercials lately! The T and A on some of these ads will but an eye out if you get your face too close to the set! And most are day time and prime time ads, too. One ad I see constantly, is of a nude woman, except for a black pair of panties that show the lower cheeks of her A--. And she is searching for something to wear and not finding anything to her liking leaves out the door with a black purse she slings over her shoulder. The ad never says what it is actually for. Just a prescription name. I guess I could look it up if I was interested, which I am not.
And our regular TV, is litterd with the bodies of women, in as little as they can get on or as much as they can take off. The CSI crime shows, are bordering on pornography. And the worst part is the CSI shows try to show a woman as sexy, as she lays sprawled in her on blood, dead, and I don't see anything sexy about being dead! Most are strippers, prostitues and S----! Some of the shows are even showing a man Humping a woman in bed. What message are they trying to send here ... and the sad part is we are letting them send it, to us and to our children. And women say, we have come a long way baby! I don't think so! Women are still being cast as playthings and objects, and more so now than ever with all the new technology!
Look at the music TV stations too, targeting our youth. I saw a music video the other day... a young woman in a tiny strip of cloth, she was laying over the guys lap as he giggles her breasts.And that is actually mild, to what goes on!
These peddled women get a pittance of what the peddler of their flesh gets! And these peddlers laugh all the way to the bank! Have we come a long way, baby!

This ad screams "cheese" from a mile away. Credibility isn't its strong suit.
