Banned Ad: “My Mom Said I Could”

The word “yes” is taken just slightly out of context here, when a little boy gets permission to do pretty much whatever he wants, from eating ice cream in class to driving a convertible on the highway. His saving grace is the infamous phrase, “My mom said I could.”

At the end, the commercial brings us to the source of the chaos – a closed bedroom door, behind which his mother is quick to say “yes” to any ridiculous request the little boy can come up with. But we know why the door is closed, and we also know who those passionate “yeses” are really meant for. Oh yeah, it’s a condom commercial by the way.

The only problem I can see with this hilarious ad is that if I were a little boy, I’d wanna buy whatever was being advertised. If it meant I could fly a plane and get a tattoo at the age of ten, heck, I’d know what I’d be asking Santa for Christmas next year!

I found this ad in the Inspiration Room: http://theinspirationroom.com/daily/2006/hansaplast-condom-maman/

Get inspired y’all.
