screw off herbal essence shampoo ppl!

  1. perhaps I'm a smidge oversensitive tonight but I was watching the episode of married in america that I taped the other night (nevermind thats a whole nother topic!) and I know, dont expect much when ur watching a fox show, I get that ,but I saw the newest herbal essence shampoo commercial (USED to be my favourite shampoo btw) and was PEEVED off .........

    yep they used a "nursey" scene....

    picture this , big obese man sleeping in hospital bed, nurse in lil white uniform sitting at his bedside (of course, thats what we do right? sit and watch ppl sleep!)
    and the wise witty nurse says to herself "wow must have been some kind of sleeping pill" or something to that effect (ohhhhh youre sooooooo witty nursey!)
    and then she spots herbal essence shampoo in the patients room and says "ohhhhh herbal essences"
    (groan groan groan)
    so she proceeds to go into the patients bathroom (yep , she left the OH SO IMPORTANT task of watching the sleeping patient) and washes her hair in the sink........
    cue the typical herbal essences ORGASM scene now
    "mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ohhhhhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh mmmmmmmmmmm yesssssss yesssssss yessssssss" *her uniform stays miraculousy dry throughout this process by the way* and she returns to her important duty of sleep watching , hair oh so beautiful, shampoo hair washing orgasm completed she sits in the chair and thats when OH MY GOODNESS , the big fake patients heart rate starts racing
    *yep must be the herbal essence shampoo!* , racing racing racing and he wakes up and exclaims "HERBAL ESSENCE mmmm "
    or something equally as stupid ....
    the nurse smiles her nursey smile, PRODUCT FLASHES ON THE SCREEN and yep you guessed it "have an ORGANIC experience"

    I can wash my hair now , I find the urge to write a complaint letter, and then proceed to vomit , if I could find that darned pukey smiley I would insert it here........

    so now I have this big moral dilemma, I love this shampoo and conditioner, smells so pretty , and although I'm disappointed that I've never had the BIG O while using it , I do enjoy it (not that kind of enjoy mind you but you know what I mean .... its good stuff) but now they have whored out the nursing profession and joined the likes of canesten vag cream , and various migrane headache meds in causing nurses around the world to heave a collective sigh ...... and heave their lunches and dinners up as a result of this PATHETIC portrayal of nurses in advertising..

    I think they should be sued for false advertising, yes for falsely advertising what nurses do all day AND falsely advertising the promise of an orgasm while washing your hair... if only it were so!
    wouldnt it be a great night at work if your assignment is to watch a sleeping patient , and you discover your fave shampoo, and proceed to have multiple orgasms ........ thats the kind of nightshift we need!!!!

    if any shampoo could give you an orgasm , I would by it by a truckload ,cuz nurses need our thrills whenever/wherever we can get them , at least according to the makers of herbal essences shampoo........

    I hate to tell you this wendy, but I saw that commercial the other night and thought it was hilarious!

    I have never been too hung up on the whole poor image of nursing thing though.

    Do whatever you feel you must. Since you like the shampoo so much, write to them, and ask them to pull the ad in x number of months or you will stop using the shampoo.

    Hoolie ,its okay , I'm not really serious (wow shock there huh?) haha
    I laughed at it too, but not cuz its so funny or witty as seinfeld or anything

    perhaps I'm just bitter about the promise of such fun while washing hair .... sure it feels nice to wash your hair but I've never ever ever , well you know

    ok, maybe they need to add as a disclaimer on the bottle that you will also need a shower massager and Herbal Essence.

    lets start a campaign....

    Give us orgasms or give us our money back!
    (wow that sounds like we are paying for sex, which we are not......mmmmmmm back to the drawing board on that one..)

    I'm sure we can get a lot of uhhhhhh "unsatisfied" customers to sign a petition
