Commercials are, more or less, fairly effective. They are visual invasions and auditory assaults to the senses which can do their manipulative job in less than 30 seconds. When I first saw the “Sword” Trident Layers Gum commercial, the ad did its spectacular magic on me as the cute cub in it caught my attention in less than 3 seconds. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
My good friend, Erl, from the Brotherhood Of Bears Yahoo Group has shared this “Distributel” commercial using sumo wrestlers to make a visual point.
There’s something about seeing two semi-nude large men superimposed on an overwhelmingly white background. You can check out more screenshots in the bearmythology Flickr Photostream.
Drew Powell as Mr. “Stinky” Auto Coverage
Anyway, I’m guessing that the rest of the population is supposed to cringe at the “fat slob” as the camera focuses on his sweaty armpits and belly fold (lol, thanks DG!). I’m also guessing that it should induce a nasty nasal reaction from such images. I say “guessing” because all I could see is an amazingly beautiful and huggable husky body that’s drenched in sweat and emanating a delicious musky scent.

I’m a sucker for commercials like these. It could be due to my never really having a father figure when I was a kid. Anyway, not only is this a heartwarming commercial, we daddy bear lovers are treated to something special…
I’ve been going through the blog’s comments and missed out on Matt updating us about strongman, Terry Hollands, being a model for Big Tall Order. I quickly went to the website and guess which links I clicked on first? That’s right. “Trousers” and “Underwear.” Unfortunately, there were no husky models for those links and I hope I can convince you guys to email the proprietors and demand them that we need to see Terry Hollands modeling in trousers and underwear, because — goshdangit! — we need to, uh, make informed decisions when making our purchases… Yeah, that’s it… ;P
And here are just a few more of Terry Hollands awesome modeling photos…
