    Medicinal garlic for the red werewolf!

    What do you mean it stops babies?

    Holly, thanks so much for posting this. I had no idea Sarah was doing this and I’m thrilled to see her tagged as Women We Love–other alums from our college improv group will be getting this link STAT.

    mk, did you see that there are five more on the same website? They’re all gems. I especially liked “Yogurt.”

    @Holly- Yup, just watched them all. (Including her stint as election updater.) I love it when people I know get (sort of) famous!

    Wow. I guess I’ve had blinders on or something since I’ve honestly never ever noticed the fact that birth control commercials don’t actually mention the birth control aspect, other than vague “98% effective!” blurbs.

    There is one commercial (not for a pill, something else) that features a quintessential suburban family hanging out on the front lawn by the minivan and the parents chat about how they are so sure they don’t want to have any more kids. That’s the only one I can think of that actually mentions the ‘prevent pregnancy’ aspect and the only reason I remember this is because the voice-over dude advises that only women who have already had children should consider that method.

    I do hate the Nuva-Ring creepy Sim swimmers commercial. It’s just so…odd. Kind of like The Polar Express.

    I think ‘yogurt’ is still my favorite, but these are all hilarious. And the Evil Sluts are all sending each other NuvaRing ecards now.

    The first time I watched “Yogurt” was right after my mother made me go to the grocery store to buy her yogurt. She was wearing her grey hoody. It was so beautiful that it brought tears of hysterical laughter to my eyes.

    Are the Nuva Ring advertisers out of their minds? “Break free” from a tiny pill you swallow every day by instead seeing your doctor EVERY MONTH to have a plastic ring put in place? I’m pretty sure I don’t know anyone who’d be stupid enough to think a doctor visit every four weeks is more convenient than swallowing a small pill.

    Heathor, you put in your own ring every week.
