    Pretty clever. I've seen other uses of the beaver in advertising contexts where it was pretty tasteless, but this one had a sort of a wink-wink nudge-nudge aspect to it that made it pretty funny.

    From the OP's link:

    Kotex research found people in that age group had 181 alternative names for the vagina and 94 per cent said they used nicknames for their own genitals.

    I've come up with 174, but what are the others?

    Heh.. Reminds me of the South Park episode where the boys go to buy tampons. One of the brands is the "Beaver Dam". :eek:

    I even went to Oregon State (our mascot is the Beavers). Actually, that's where I saw the advert that I found tacky, on a street sign for a salon near campus.

    Too bad nobody else was able to eat out with them, or take that beaver downtown.


    This article reminded me of this:

    The ad in question is better than 95% of American network TV. I guess we should Leave it to Beaver more often...

    What's wrong with euphemisms now? I thought that's all they could use. A beaver seems a good, safe choice to me. I mean, they couldn't show a bacon sandwich having a manicure. That would be far too gross. Is there such an animal as a punani?

    I thought you were referring to the GoDaddy.Com ad with Danica Patrick. I believe they were the first to release their Beaver ad :p

    Times have changed. People need to loosen up and let GenX have their commercials.

    Well I thought the ad was hysterical.

    For demographic purposes, I am a female in my late 20's, I minored in Women's Studies, and I thought that was a hell of a lot less offensive than some of the other ads I see...

    Haha... ha. The guys were staring at her beaver. :eek: :D

    The ad's alright, it's clever, but it's nothing that would make me jump out of my seat in either applause or disgust.
