This Is Why We Stopped Questioning Marketing People..

Baby Anti-Monkey Butt Diaper Rash Cream ??? REALLY ???

      Over the years on SC6, we've noted some of the more odd products out there: Kinoki Foot Pads, Square Watermelons, Vince and the Slap Chop... Maybe we haven't been paying attention the past year or so - or maybe there just aren't as many stupid products out there anymore - but it's been a long time since we found one.  Time to set the clock back to zero again!

      Yes, as long as there have been babies, there has been diaper rash... Not that we've ever seen it.  We were the youngest, we don't have kids, and by the time nieces and nephews starting popping out, we were long gone.  In this case, a product to relieve diaper rash isn't strange.... but the name sure is.

      May we introduce you to Baby Anti-Monkey Butt Diaper Rash Cream!!!   Yeah, we guess diaper rash does look red like a Monkey's Butt, but would you want to name the product Anti-Monkey Butt?  In this case, maybe yes....  This could be a case of marketing genius.  After all, how often do you talk about rash powder?  Not much, we're sure... I know we've never talked about Gold Bond, but the second we saw this ad, we were on the phone, asking friends if they ever saw this.  My brother actually did - his boss saw the stuff on the shelf and bought it.  The guy didn't even NEED IT, but he had to show it to his wife...  Crazy like a fox!

    Here's the only ad for it that I found on YouTube... Apparently, it works on bears as well - that is, until they make Anti-Bear Butt Cream.  Enjoy!
