Why take diet pills…

Okay, Okay, Okay…I know. I am a video fiend. But I promise (promise promise) I’m planning an update with words. Real words, and not just words that lead up to a video.

This is not that update.

But, this may be one of the funniest (and genuine) series of commercials I’ve ever seen. The comedy is entirely in their poor choice of product name, and if you haven’t seen them yet, enjoy:

Taste, chew, and Enjoy!

Try new peanut butter Ayds! I wonder why this stuff isn’t around anymore!

Thank goodness, indeed! This next one I find funny mostly because of the images they use…

I’m going to go get myself some Ayds today!

    Just to be clear, Ayds was around for a long time before AIDS, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. AIDS surely drove Ayds out of business fast.

    Can you imagine the look of horror on the faces of Ayds executives when the term AIDS started getting used back in the 80s?

    I remember Ayds was a big advertiser on the old Larry King all-night radio show (long before CNN ever hit the airwaves).

    I wonder if the company ever changed its product name and marketed it as something else?

    I remember these commercials (long before the other AIDS took over.)

    Yeah, I remember those too. Definitely one of the things about the past I miss. A world without AIDs.
