Portapotties Get Branded

And just when you thought advertisers couldn’t squirt another medium out of their sphincter… portapotties become the next great advertising medium, ending an ad-free tradition of smelly closets filled with other people’s feces that goes back to the crescent-moon outhouse of the early American frontier.

    They should probably put the ads on the floor. That’s the only place my eyes go while I’m hovering my delicate bum over the pee-soaked toilet seat.

    There are few product that manufacturers would want associated with those stinkboxes.

    I’m thinking this would be a perfect place for the Sears catalog.

    How about this ad:

    Do you wish they had real toilet paper in here?
    Quilted Northern


    Or:

    Wow, it’s nasty in here, isn’t it?
    Lysol, travel size

    Or:

    Your blood, sweat and tears. Our bottom line. Halliburton


    Oh– sorry, that last might not fit the theme.

    A port-a-potty I used last weekend at a golf course had an ad in it selling the space. It was on the back wall so only visible when you walk in and not when you are unfortunate enough to have to sit or hover.

    If this will help to denastify the portapotties, I am all for it. I don’t think that I have ever used a portapotty without looking back on it as a traumatic experience. But then, if this does not help to make them less horrifying, I will simply ignore the ads like I do with most other forms of advertising.

    Maybe advertorials for mud wrestling? Duncan Heinz Make-your-own Brownies?

    …and of COURSE, any lite beer

    If I had an ad hanging on the wall I’d put a big ol’ target in the middle of it. Cuz you know guys don’t bother to aim when we’re in those things so why not have a little messy fun with it!

    Photos of Bush with his mouth open?

  10. whoever picked out that photo deserves a cookie.

  11. Trai_Dep says:

    GenX – I’d eat a pound of ex-lax beforehand if they did that!

    Forget ads, they should have a vending machine selling disinfectant.

    Could be worse. Much worse.
