Yes, but what am I supposed to do with it?

I can't decide if this is the worst TV commercial in the history of TV commercials, or the best.



Discuss.

It's the Worst Design, what's that background from? Left over from TRON? It's the Worst, in the sense of Asthetics. It's the Worst when it comes to annoyance factor, but Its also the Best if Annoyance Factor was an award Category. They couldn't even get the woman to rub the damn thing across her head more than once, and resorted to looping it, which is quite obvious in the little "jump" in the movement. Technical nightmare.
Add to this, I see the damn thing at least 5 times an hour on our air. At least it's not the fat bug-eyed Di-Tech man.

Head On is probably the Best ever in ability to recall what the hell the commercial is about, and peaks your interest into what the hell the thing does, so you go google it. Admit it, you have.

Have you seen
Freed-Hem, the One Application Hemoroidal Cream?

It was Head On's predecessor. Head On actually added moving video to it's little ditty.

I Love any Peyton Manning commercial. He's funny, he's cute. He's a hot athlete. I have no idea what the commercials were for. Product? Um? no idea. Hot Peyton Manning? I want me one!

Wait, where are you supposed to apply it directly to? It wasn't clear after the first four times.

Seriously, why would you put in on? Chapped forehead? Now I'm more confused than every. Why would someone put it on their forehead.

I'm stuck in a confusion loop.

It's a homeopathic headache remedy--meaning it's 99.999% wax with a trace amount of some sort of herb.

Wax should only be applied to the forehead if you want to cycle a bike with the aim of making small winged insects stick to your forehead.

Why would you want to do this? It seemed a good idea at the time, that's why :-)
