'Oh you've caught an even atom tan' - The Clash

What's the deal with the clowns in Cialis commercials? The dudes all have Hollywood tans. You know: deep, fake.

Maybe it's due to all that blood trapped in their facial pigment when it should be flowing down south to help raise the draw bridge? A result of their ED affliction? If so, what does that imply about George Hamilton? He claims to be ED free, but you can't hide from that Coppertone look.

Does Cialis simply free up all that blood from the face? Do you end up looking like Casper the Friendly Ghost "when the moment is right" or "when she gives me that look" or "when Glenda the Good Witch makes her first appearance in Wizard of Oz"? (Oops, that last one hasn't been released yet.)

Or is the tan a side effect of the medication itself? Perhaps that was the original indication? If so, does it turn your dick brown as well?

Lots of questions, but no answers forthcoming from their web site. Though I did learn that you shouldn't use amyl nitrite or other 'popper' drugs together with this particular pecker pepper. Or drink 5 shots of whiskey on a daily basis.

Taking Cialis does apparently compel you to haul bathtubs and perhaps other porcelain hygiene accouterments toward large bodies of water. It's not listed as a side effect, but the home page picture tells the tale.

For no particular reason at all, I found this alternative Cialis commercial to be revealing, though certainly not illuminating. They sidestep the tanning issue here by featuring African Americans. Or at least they appear to be, but it could just be the meds ...
