    Apparently the Vibra-Finger "makes a different and useful gift." )-| That is probably the truest statement in that ad.

    And I wonder how many PhotoShop alterations of that VD announcement are floating around.

    Turn on the History channel - vibrators have been around for almost 100 years. That third item wasn`t meant for "massaging the gums" and in studying Marketing in college, lots of items are masked as other items simply for the fact that they can`t display them under what they really are.

    Check out any Walgreen`s and find the good ol` back massager wand. Ever use one on your back? Doesn`t really work, does it?

    That`s cause it isn`t meant for your back in the first place.

    This was a riot! I really enjoyed this - here are some comments:

    Hmmm - blow in her face and she will follow you anywhere? If my husband did that to me, I would be mad! I think that only happens in adult movies, anyway. LOL

    As far as the VD ad, imagine how that ad can be altered and sent around online!

    Vibra finger:
    OMG! This about made me fall off my chair! I like where it said, "Increases and improves circulation" and "cleansing and refreshing." Yeah, I bet it is! Then the ad suggests getting one for you and one for your friend. Why is that, so you & a friend can enjoy them together?

    Sorry if this sounds too blunt,but how can you NOT think of these things when the ads seem to be begging for comments like this!??

    Those are classic ads. I like in the first one how the woman is leaning in as if to say "Shotgun me man"! And the Vibra-Finger is wicked funny. Not only does it come with a carrying case the ad also says " Buy one for yourself and one for a friend". LMAO! "Just what I`ve always wanted Suzy, a Vibra-Finger!" "You`re welcome Jill, now we can both massage our gums togther!" *70`s porn music starts playing* =P

    Yeah, we all thought the vibra finger was a vibrator.
    But lets think about it. A girl doesn`t go and buy a vibrating "back massager" with intentions of only relieving back tension, right?
    And you heard the doctor, he reccomends it!
