Godzilla, Paul Bunyan and a robot walk into a bar...

The worst commercial on TV right now is the one with Godzilla, Paul Bunyan and a giant robot terrorizing a city by doing the Pepto-Bismol song-and-dance routine. Can you imagine the chaos if Paul Bunyan had an attack of diarrhea in the middle of downtown? What is Paul Bunyan doing in a city, anyway? And why is he friends with Godzilla? And how does a robot get indigestion or heartburn¹? This commercial disturbs me almost as much as that freaky Burger King.

Pepto-Bismol Dance Machine!Unfortunately, no one seems to have put this monstrosity² up online, so I'm not able to show it off to those of you who have been lucky enough to miss it on TV. You can, however, play with the Pepto-Bismol Dance Machine and make your own dances about nausea and indigestion!

Yes, I was put on earth to find these things for you. You're welcome.

¹ That does explain what the robot was doing in the pharmacy, though.

² Monstrosity! Ha! Because they're monsters! (Well, Paul Bunyan isn't a monster per se, but he's certainly of unusual size.)

I want to know which marketing hack thought this was a good idea.

I hate that damn dance. Like flames-on-the-side-of-my-face hate it.

What's worse is that I remember the words, so now I know all the stuff Pepto can treat ... so their evil plan worked ... damn them.

Wow. I don't know what's worse -- the commercials (which I hate with the fire of a thousand burning suns), or the fact that some idiot made the Pepto Bismol Web Machine. Though I must say that your screenshot is hilarious, and the dude on the left is killing me. Unfortunately, Pepto Bismol's evil marketing is so effective that I happen to know what ailment they're all suffering, and I just want to say that's gross.

I agree that the Dude on the Left is the coolest. You can make a whole row of dancing Dudes on the Left. Unfortunately they all suffer the same symptoms in unison* so you can't show off The Many Faces of Dude on the Left at the same time.

* I seriously almost wrote "in unicorn".

How can you say that this commercial is the worst on TV?!?! Whoever thought of this commercial is a visionary and a genius, and anyone who can't see this should be forced to have said diarrhea rain down upon them in a flury of Paul Bunyan fecal matter. Damn you and your followers.

I happen to agree with the latter. I am practically addicted to that commercial. It's not like it plays as often as those damn KFC christmas commercials. now THOSE are annoying...

I'm gonna have to agree, that commercial is one of the best on TV right now!

I'm one of the many who love this commercial. It's bizarre, it's outrageous, it's unlike anything on TV. I don't know if it will sell Pepto (I suspect it will), but if laughter is the best medicine then I'm cured.
