Have you seen the Febreze commercials?

A bottle of Febreze.

Have you noticed those commercials? The ones where they take you into a really nasty commercial kitchen full of dirty dishes full of leftover food and sinks of standing water? The person blindfolded is amazed at how wonderful it smells and how they were totally fooled when they remove their blindfold to see where they are. Or the ones who remove their blindfolds to realize they are sitting on filthy furniture holding a blanket. My complaint with those commercials is they are so unrealistic. The kitchen would be closed down by the health department! Even if the entire staff went home leaving everything from a busy night until the next day, the kitchen would never look this bad. And who would remove their blindfold and just say “Wow”? I think at the very least I would flinch and start backing out of there. And if I was the one sitting on that couch when I removed the blindfold, I wouldn’t just say “Hello”? wondering where the people who led me there disappeared to! I’d jump up throw that blanket away from me and begin brushing myself off hoping I didn’t catch anything. Everyone’s house gets dirty and mine has been very dirty, but that is just over the top! I guess the commercial is successful since it is memorable, but just not very realistic.

    On the upside I no longer have to clean my place for company… i just spray the Fabreeze and give them all a blindfold outside my door!

    I hate the smell of febreze. And now it’s in everything. I had some trouble getting something to clean the floor with that didn’t have febreze in it. I succeeded eventually.


  3. They probably would not like my reaction if I was the one they blindfolded. 🙂

    I also just can’t see the Fabreeze completely covering those smells. It would smell like funk covered in Fabreeze.

    I’ve had a qualm with those commercials too. The participants are touching things while blindfolded. I would be completely disgusted when the blindfold came off whereas these people seem just surprised. Definitely not realistic reactions at all.
