    They ARE weird. Big-burly men holdin' puppies & flowers, setting Martha Stewart type tables and that narrative.

    I get creeped out by it.

    Yes, creepy.

    However, also somewhat effective, as evidenced by the fact that you REMEMBER them, which is the whole point of an advertisement.

    There may be a negative effect from it though, as I know I will never buy Brawny papertowels again because of the effectiveness of said commercials.

    They're meant to marketed towards housewives who dream of rugged yet tender men, but they seem far more akin to the opening scene from a gay porn or something.

    How do you think I bought all my gear on my starving artist wages? My stage name was Lance McThrust, rump ranger extraordinaire.

    I'm the one they're setting the dinner table for. :D

    I think the weirdest part of those commercials is the voice over. He sounds like he's sexually aroused by cleaning a room.
    "Everything's just right...everything's perfect."

    Housewives dreaming of rugged, yet tender men? What?? You gotta be kidding me, right? You can't have it both ways! It's against the laws of nature! (Except, perhaps, certain areas of the Bay Area and Laguna Beach!) I know it's against the Republican Agenda!!!

    I wanna stab that guy in the thorax with skewer.

    I SO hate that commercial.

    I hate to be placed under suspicion for this but since you mentioned arousal...has anyone noticed in the uncropped version of said commercial the what seems like a polish sausage in the guys pants? My mom noticed it actually and then we noticed they started running an cropped version that wouldn't show his crotch area.
