Advertising Lesson 1: Sex Sells

Orgasm as metaphor - or more literal suggestion - is not uncommon these days; Herbal Essences spring to mind but I bet there are a few more. For ages ads have skirted around the idea that buying certain products makes people more virile, sexy, successful, clever and healthy. Suggesting that something actually brings people to a sexual climax is hardly a radical development.

For added novelty value to this ad, why not stop it at about 15 seconds and guess what it's shilling. Further, why not pretend this spot is advertising:

Toilet roll;
Anusol;
ICI;
Nik Naks;
Mattesons smoked sausages;
Price-comparison websites;
Safestyle UK?
