There are so many TV ads for prescription drugs these days! Even my mom, who's a pharmacist, shakes her head every time one comes on. Recently, I've seen more cartoon characters in the ads. Some are cute and some are creepy AF. @daniel did I miss any?
  1. Zoloft (for depression)
    1d73c343 6879 4972 a539 e2dd71771dcc
    The sad, deflated little circle/ball/stone thingy at the beginning of the commercial makes me want to pick it up and give it a hug. After it gets Zoloft it's so cute and bouncy! Pretty simple 🌟
  2. Myrbetriq (for overactive bladder)
    63909313 9afe 4681 888d 65985e986c96
    I have to hand it to the advertisers, this CGI bladder is super cute. The way it holds the lady's hand and tugs her to the bathroom like a little kid is endearing. The drug name sucks, though.
  3. Abilify (for depression)
    Dd145101 c181 44e2 87cf f2297dc3d88e
    The little helpful Abilify pill is cute enough.
  4. Jublia (for toenail fungus)
    135a0099 ab0d 4aac 93fc 998aa871d83a
    Remember this from Super Bowl? So weird to have it be active when it's literally connected to a massive foot and four other toes. Where does it think it's going??
  5. Mucinex (for congestion and mucus)

    Gross! I dislike this one very much. It actually makes me change the channel.
  6. Abilify (again)

    Ok, this cartoon creature is supposed to represent depression and it's so very creepy! It's a black blob that follows her around and lies down on the ground to become a pit she falls into. In this scene, it's chasing her in the form of a bathrobe that wants her to go back to bed and continue being depressed. I get the symbolism, but that's the stuff of nightmares.
