Brawny, Take Me Away

Maybe I’m just a sucker for an effective ad campaign. Want me to buy your product? Come up with a commercial that gets my attention and sticks in my mind, and most likely your widget will magically appear in my shopping cart next time I’m out.

Right now, I want to buy some Brawny paper towels. Evan might have found Brawny’s new virtual woodsman creepy, but I found it…well… Let’s just say I downloaded the screensaver for further examination.

Now, it’s not quite perfect by any means. I know I’m not — as a gay man — the intended audience, but I do have a few helpful suggestions. I mean, I’d have gone with a hunkier woodsman, and maybe given him a haircut. And it would have been nice to have a few choices, say, among different types of woodsmen. But, as a little free virtual interlude goes, it’s not bad. One could do worse.

Maybe next we’ll get a virtual Rosie?

    Look what Brawny did to this classic goth-punk album cover

    I saw this a while back. I thought it was creepy and funny in a campy sort of way…

    either someone was a genius or nuts.

    Way better than the old Brawny guy… very 70s porn-esque.

  4. Lauren says:

    I love it. It’s so campy!

    And doesn’t he have a great big package in one of the commercials?

  5. Jeff says:

    Ha, the way it’s filmed totally reminds me of the Christopher Walken “Continental” sketches on SNL!

  6. Tim Who? says:

    I used to like Brawny. Not any more.
    They have too much time and money on their hands.
