Have you seen Merck's latest HPV commercial? It's he one that starts out about life's great and you're going to Portugal (or somewhere equally exotic; I've actively stopped watching the commercials [okay, it was on again, and it's Miami, which is less exciting than Portugal]) and then you meet a guy and then he gives you HPV and then YOU GET CANCER AND ARE BARREN AND MIGHT DIE. Um, thanks guys. Nothing like the most heavy-handed scare tactics you could possibly imagine.
It's not that I'm against the vaccine. (I haven't gotten it myself, but there's no real need, and I long ago passed the approved age, anyway.) It's just that I object to any attempt to frighten people into paying for the service that a commercial sponsor provides. It's the slightly more evil flipside to "If you buy our product, you'll be thinner/richer/happier/sexier/more successful!!" As we say in my family, "That's asking a lot from a jumper."
I did, however, recently enjoy the Geico commercial where they asked if he was British or Australian. It is a very nondescript (if charming) accent.
