When you think about your eyelashes, is your first thought, “Man, I wish I had a penis pump for these things”? Maybe it should be; according to this semi-NSFW Benefit mascara ad, that’s essentially what your lash enhancers are.
This tongue-in-cheek ad juxtaposes giant bulges with giant eyelashes, which are totally related…somehow. To be fair, the online commercial is for the company’s They’re Real mascara, so it actually makes a fair amount of sense. Your lashes may not be quite as long and thick as you would like them to be, just as a dude may have the same feelings about his junk (albeit, certainly not all guys).
The best part of all this? Vinny Guadagnino. As in, Vinny from Jersey Shore, and his comically oversized bulge in this video. It cracks me up that he’s doing yoga the whole time, though I’m simultaneously high-fiving myself for resisting the urge to make a million “downward dog” jokes. Nice job, self. You did good today.
Of course, women aren’t actually unable to control themselves in the face of giant genitalia, but the ad is still a pretty hilarious take on lash “enhancement.” Plus, it is infinitely less boring than the endlessly dull ads from other companies where a woman with very fake eyelashes looks down then sharply up at the camera over and over while crappy electro music blares in the background. When it comes down to beauty advertisements, I’ll take entertaining over same ol’/same ol’ any day.
