This commercial is shocking. Offensive even.
I watched it and for the first 28 out of 32 seconds I thought it was just advertising how terrible relationships can be when you mistakenly choose to spend the rest of your life with an anal-retentive psychopath.
But, nope. It’s a commercial for a toilet paper cover. That’s right. A toilet paper cover.
Cottonelle would like to start the trend of taking your toilet paper out of the plastic cover that it was in since you brought it home from the store and placing it into a plastic cover that you actually had to purchase at the store.
I can’t even imagine the meeting where they decided people were dumb enough to do this. I swear, this is the best indicator ever to stop dating someone. If we’re on a date, and I’m back at your house, and I mysteriously just walk out with no explanation, and then you use the bathroom and see one of those Jonathan Adler toilet paper covers, don’t text me, just know it was your fault.
The announcer at the end of the commercial says, “Take care of your toilet paper…” as if there are evil creatures in your house destined to attack your toilet paper so violently that your beautiful Cottonelle will be degraded into public restroom style toilet paper.
Congratulations, Cottonelle. You just found a way to do the impossible and make germaphobes more miserable and annoying.
