Livin' La Vida Viagra

Have you seen this commercial?



Just a bunch of guys hanging out together in a slightly rough and tumble looking empty bar jamming on guitar, bass, harmonica, etc. Just a normal bunch of guys right? In fact they look like they could be your neighbor, or your kid's math teacher, or even that guy that sits in the cubicle across from you at work. Well except for the one with the bandanna and the Harley. I'm pretty sure he doesn't teach math.

And they're all sitting around discussing their erectile dysfunction, and they get so inspired, they burst into song about it. Because we all know two things that men excel at is intimate discussion and a love of musicals.

Now let's face it, Viagra commercials are just funny to begin with. Especially that warning they throw in there about "if you experience an erection that lasts longer than four hours you must seek medical attention."

Medical attention? Hell with that! Most men I know will alert the media.

My first thought upon hearing this commercial though was "Viva Viagra"?? Viva Las Vegas was never in my opinion one of Elvis' better tunes, but still. It deserves a little respect doesn't it? Elvis will be rolling over in his grave.

Then I called to mind the sequined jumpsuits, the lacquered pompadour, the stylized aviator glasses, the extravagance of Graceland. Not to mention the fact that if Elvis were alive today he'd be 73 and in some pretty serious need of Viagra himself.

On second thought, I'm pretty sure the King would be honored.

Okay, I just laughed right out loud. Yes, men do seem to excel at musicals and intimate talk...if they are gay!

Here's a story about a guy who had an erection lasting more than four hours. He used an old style product (before Viagra) which required he inject this medicine into the base of his business. Ouch! - I have never been so desperate for sex that I would intentionally stab myself with a needle in my most sensitive flesh. Back to the story, he had this erection that lasted forever! His girlfriend went home after several hours, she was bored, lol. By the next day, he'd had this for 24 hours and it was quite painful. He called his doctor's office to report that he had an erection that would not go away. The receptionist thought it was a crank call and hung up on him. Finally, he went to the ER. They were able to give him an antidote, but there was significant damage to his vascular system down there, and well, you guessed it, he was in the clinical trials for Viagra.
