Squatty Potty - This Unicorn Changed the Way I Poop (2015) 2:53 (USA)

The trouble with unicorn haemorrhoids? “The glitter gets everywhere”, according to this silly, absurd, scatological, tongue-in-cheek, but surprisingly informative ad by social agency Harmon Brothers. Of course, this isn’t the first time that Pythonesque absurdity has been used to sell a seemingly awkward product; Tena Men took a similar approach earlier in the year with “Control”, a man who takes control of everything in his life, even bladder weakness. It seems that when bodily excretions are involved, the best way to tackle the subject is straight on, with plenty of absurdity to help us get over our shyness. Harmon Brothers will be hoping for a viral hit with “This Unicorn Changed the Way I Poop” although at almost 3 minutes, one wonders if they might be indulging a little too far with their audience’s attention span in a quest to convince us we need to poop different.

I can't believe I watched this. I also can't believe that I immediately thought of poo purri... What is it with poop and UK accented spokespeople? You have a thing, dontcha?

Also, thanks for the diet visuals, ice-cream holding man.

Same agency made Poo Purri! They've got a thing for posh accents.
