Procter & Gamble Holds Event to Teach People How to Use Toilet Paper

Print comment Post Comments
Flipping through the New York Post today, I came across a full page ad from Procter & Gamble. It invites readers to "Experience P&G brandSAVER LIVE" which is, apparently, "An exciting store event where you can try samples, watch demos, and consult experts." (Also, don't you love the mixture of caps and lowercase in "brandSAVER"? Very iPhone-esque. Good on ya, P&G! Who says Cincinnati isn't on top of international trends?)

The NYC "event" will run from October 22 through October 31. According to P&G, a survey they conducted found that 73% of women are "sometimes disappointed with their purchase of household products" with 25% of said products failing to "live up to expectations." So, the good folks at P&G are stepping in to let the disappointed masses "try samples, watch demos, and consult experts" at these events, which, from the lineup of products, don't appear to be quite as "exciting" as the company seems to have talked themselves into believing.

They include:


Head & Shoulders





Now, like any other 40 year-old guy, I've had enough years of experience to figure out my way around a tube of toothpaste.

Do I really need to consult an expert for tips on how to brush my teeth? Maybe. Perhaps I've been doing it wrong all this time.

As far as watching demos, I'll pass on the Charmin booth.

Come to think of it, I'll skip the Tampax demonstration, as well.
