    Default Offensive hairloss commercial.

    Don't know if you guys have already seen this commerical. I am dissapointed with Merk. This commerical is kind of offensive and just sad.

    I always thought it was snake oil that preyed on insecurities.

    Its kind of hurtful too.

    They are basically trying to into everyones head that bald men are unattractive. Thats just nasty.

    There might be a little truth to it, but did you really have to put it this way?

    LOLOL Try going on the website on the video you get this message:

    "Merck: Thank you for visiting our site, which is currently unavailable."


    Obviously something to do with all the law suits they're getting. And this video is over 2 years old.

    Amen to that, just plane crazy. Maybe they could make a sequel, where the guy meets a smoking hot girl, and when they wants to get freaky, and she drop the pant's, she is an eunuch, and then state: "she thinks the same about your when the artificial hormones f..... you up" :-)

    This commercial is actually quite sickening.

    TBH I find it repulsive how this advertisement tries to fool (insecure) balding people that a man with a receding hairline or going bald is the same and just as ugly as a bald or balding woman. Which is false.

    Even though I grant you that men going bald will make them less attractive, a woman going bald is basically the end of her social life. There is absolutely no culture or society that accepts bald women. Orthodox Jews and Islamic women even have to hide their hair because according to them it's the essence of attractiveness and beauty.

    These advertisers deserve a punch in the kidneys.

    And we trust this company to trial and report accurately on the safety of their drugs.

    Depends on the man.

    Pierce brosnan looks good,
