Universal Monster Sex! Yes, Naughty Ghouls Need Love Too...

This slice of fried gold came my way via Fangoria Magazine. Apparently, it is a real commercial for Trojan condoms that was cooked up by the obviously brilliant Ronni "Raygun" Thomas (creator of the 2006 horror short Dawn of the Flies). According to the story, the Trojan company was less than pleased with the finished product, since it had originally been envisioned featuring five brain-dead jocks. Wow, a condom ad filled with a bunch of bros--how original!

Anyway, Thomas subsequently lost the account as a result of this brilliant work, and so it most likely will not see the light of day as an actual commercial. So much for boardroom taste. And so, it's our duty to spread it around like the viral sensation it should be. Enjoy!

Hilarious! I can't believe he lost the account, perhaps the humour is an acquired taste you think? I got a good giggle from it, JH not so much.

I don't think its an acquired taste so much as those marketing stuffed shirt-types wouldn't know genuine humor if it affixed itself to their scrotums by its teeth. And this is coming from someone in marketing lol!

I'm in marketing too and can only say this commercial is nothing short of sheer genious. Considering the tongue in cheek nature of most of their commercials, I'm baffled by this.

Ha! This commercial is brilliant! The fact that it was snuffed just goes to show the lack of humor that goes on in the boardrooms nowadays. Probably a bunch of 80-year-old Viagra munchers. What a shame. This commercial would have definitely made me stop and watch.

I can only agree with everyone here. This was a magnificent commercial. What, there was no obnoxious, trumpeted "TROJAN MAN" sloganeering? Very stupid on the part of the execs who rejected it.
