I looked, but I don't any previous posts on these gems. 

Point blank, Ray looks robotic. And he sounds like he has sh*t in his mouth.
...I suspect a side effect from the Chantix?

It just creeps me out.



I prefer this one though.LOL

Actually this is one commercial that has really bothered me for awhile. It's like Ray Liotta wishes to show he's just another human like you or I, yet he has far too much make-up on? Or did they do his eyebrows? It just doesn't seem like him.

My guess....Awful plastic surgery.  Way, way too much Botox.  His face looks frozen and bloated.  The sad thing is, he had an interesting and unusual appearance  when he was younger.  Whatever he has done in the name of trying to "recapture" that look as he's aged just hasn't worked.  Ouch

He's depressed because he really just wants a cigarette.

Why does he look half asleep? And what's with the long eyelashes? He just plain looks weird!!!

BTW, my sister looked into using chantix, but after I did some research and read some horror stories from users, I convinced her not to.

This may have been covered elsewhere, buy why do literally ALL drug commercials run in slow motion? Every damn one of them!! There must be a reason. I can't really think of any other type of commercial that does this.

New Zealand says NO  to drug commercials.  Can that ever happen here in the USA?  As I watch the evening news, one after another.  Its crazy.  Please Stop.  I'm begging ya.

Lucky them. So it's just the U.S. now that airs this non stop crap. It's really bad during the evening news (which I have on as I type). CNN has one sometimes 2 during every break.

It's just really bad in general compared to 5, 10 years ago.

Right before reading this, they just had Rx commercials on the order of six out of eight spots.

The name Chantix is all too EZ for me to remember. It's similar to the name of an acquaintance whose personality is even more toxic than the cigarettes she smokes. At times, Pavlovian conditioning sucks.
I keep encountering 3rd graders who sound smarter than most ad writers.

At least cold turkey won't risk the need to respond to a 1-800-BAD DRUG commercial years from now.

Poor old Ray!  He sounds like he has trouble just inhaling enough air to speak.

Nice dog, Ray!


Nice crib, Ray!


Nice wife, Ray!

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

The movie "Blow" has been airing on HBO. So now when I see old man Ray with make-up in that flick, I think of Chantix.

It's so they can stretch 30 seconds of video to match the 2 minutes of voice-over. Because they have to review the side effects that your doctor and pharmacist should be talking about anyways.

What gets me is how many Rx ads tell us to "see our ad in (magazine)". Like who the hell is running out and buying the newest issue of Basketweavers Quarterly to read a pharmaceutical ad?

Indeed.
All the same, one should listen to these side-effects. In one of the newer ads about an injectable medicine, it is strongly suggested one contact their doctor if they encounter parasitic infestations. Might that be one of those mild 'side effects'?

I tried it more than 20 years ago. and it seemed to help. At work since I used prescription drugs in survival kits I received drug alerts. I was caring for my elderly parents and the possible suicidal/homicidal side effects were not acceptable. soon after I was caring for grandkids and still am. Not worth the risk.
