That is correct, I am saying that one of the largest diaper companies, Huggies, sucks. I would normally try to split up a brand name so that it can not be found using an internet search, but trust me, I WANT this one found.
For a few days now, I have been seeing a Huggies commercial that annoys the crap out of me. It is for free diapers for a year.
Now, that sounds like a great deal, right???? I mean, I can totally use free diapers for a year, who couldn't?
Well, I guess the marketing execs at Huggies wanted a funny or cute commercial. But, instead all they did was to make an ass out of themselves.
The commercial basically says that in order to qualify all you have to do is:
- Have sperm meet egg
- Have a pregnancy glow for about nine months
- Deal with morning sickness
- Deal with people patting your belly
- Rush to the hospital
- Deliver your miracle
Yup, that is correct, it says you would only qualify if you BIRTH a child. Yes, I understand that the majority of women will actually give birth to their children. And, yes, I did read the actual rules of the contest and it does NOT say that you actually have to give birth.
But, the commercial itselfs leads people to believe that if you choose to have a child any other way than birthing that child, then you do not qualify for the contest.
It really hit a cord with me. I find it annoying. My husband thinks that I am overly sensitive about it.
I did e-mail the company, only to get a super canned response. The same response that others have received as well.
I was not able to find the video on-line...so since I have DVR, I figured I would just rewind when I saw the commercial. Well, it did not take long until I saw it again.
Here is the video, please note that it took many many tries to not have a yelling child in the background..this is the best I got. Please excuse the yelling child in the back, he is just as mad as I am lol
