Toilet paper: does it need to be advertised?

I can’t be the only one who hates this Quilted Northern ad.

I hated on Charmin’s ‘Sit or Squat’ promo equally hard here.

Is anyone influenced by advertising for a commodity like toilet paper? When I go to the store, I buy the best priced, soft, unscented product I can find. Unless something truly innovative comes along, I’m sticking with that approach and don’t want to ‘talk about what goes on in the bathroom.’

Whatever focus group or other research caused Northern to come up with this ad, I feel the need to point out that you all are weird. Be sure to read the comments after this article, by the way.

P.S. in searching for the gross Quilted Northern ad, I realized that not only does Northern have its own YouTube channel, but it also has videos for toilet paper crafts. Who thought this was a good idea? Raise your hand so I can forever shun you.
