An ad that almost worked…

So I saw an ad on Salon.com this morning that definitely caught my attention. It was for the “Washlet”. The first time I saw it, I was amused. But then it kept popping up as I was reading articles and it kept grabbing my attention. I finally just had to see what the heck the washlet was and clicked on the ad (something that I never do).

You can see the ad here at CleanIsHappy.com. I do not plan on buying one, but I do have to give it credit for intriguing me enough to check it out (and even sit through the demo on their site because I really wanted to see what it was all about). That is way more time then I normally give to ads…I just really got a kick out of this one. Check it out for yourself and you will see why.

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    You are right that is one cute ad. There is a similar less expensive product here:

    There are times when I can almost justify the money, but it also buy a lot of home schooling materials.
