How many industries benefit from one little blue pill?
Doctors – consulting
Pharmacists – distributing
Advertising agencies – the creative geniuses behind these campaigns
Media – delivery of the genius campaign to the masses.
Comedians – endless material (didja hear about the new Viagra for women – Niagara!)
Internet providers – Spam. More spam. Endless amounts of spam.
Other “blue pill” alternatives – Cialis, Levitra, Tylenol (in case she has a headache!)
The makers of this little blue “wonder” have launched a new campaign that focuses on what happens when couples stop being intimate – apparently you exercise more, do home renovations, or expand your knowledge. Yeah, I can see why they’d want to put a stop to those activities.
My beef isn’t with the pill, or those that use it. I am just blown away (pardon the pun) by the amount of money that goes into a drug that only benefits at most (usually) two people – but more often than not – only one! Can this money not be earmarked for something a bit more productive?
Pfizer was recently the recipient of the “largest criminal fraud fine in U.S. history” $2.3 Billion! That’s a pretty hefty smack down levied due to “off-label” marketing. The funny thing is – apparently the little blue pill was developed to help those suffering from depression….
If you need help – then this might be just the product for you. I just don’t see why this much $$ needs to go to a product that is as effective as it claims. But, I guess without it, all of the comedians, doctors, ad agencies, and the rest would be out of a job. And then they’d be depressed. And then they would have intimacy issues. And then they wouldn’t know which pill would help them….
