I am sitting on my computer in the master bedroom which is right off the living room. The TV is on in the living room and I hear a commercial so absurd, I actually got up to see if it was a joke or not.
Called, “The Better Marriage Blanket” the product apparently has the same “activated charcoal” used by the US Army during warfare to prevent chemical and gaseous exposure. Only this time, it’s being used to absorb pesky “flatulence molecules.” (i.e. the dreaded “silent but deadly!”) Don’t believe me? Watch the commercial on YouTube here.
Nothing says, “I love you” like a blanket to absorb fart smell. “Happy anniversary, my love! By the way, you fart in your sleep!” (There’s a card I bet Hallmark doesn’t make!)
Everybody’s talking about it – all the way to WebMD for crying out loud! Don’t know if all the word-of-mouth marketing will translate into actual sales for them but I’m sure many other people are at least going to be aware of the product – like myself – when they hear the almost too crazy to be true commercial.
