Awkward Moments With Mom AND Dad

Growing up, I've shared more awkward moments with my mother than I think are healthy or normal. This holiday season, I was transported back to those mortifying moments when an unfortunate commercial came on while I was watching TV with not only my mom, but my dad too. That commercial? The Trojan Twister vibrator.

I'd like to point out that I never, ever see this commercial when I'm alone in my apartment watching television. However, when I was home for the holidays, I saw it approximately 20,000,000,000 times, three of those occasions being in the company of my parents (one time during Thanksgiving and twice during Christmas). To make matters worse, it was more like a minute-long infomercial, which made the awkward moment feel like five hours. And my mother, always stepping up to the plate, somehow managed to make the situation even more unbearable by asking, "What does it mean when their hair is blown back?"

"Google it," I replied. So not having this convo, Mom.


  1. I have to agree with her though. What a stupid tagline!

  2. Oh yeah, it's stupid, for sure. However, debating the sensibility of a vibrator commercial's tagline is not a conversation I want to have with my mom and Pops. :-/

  3. 1.Sooooo know how you feel, I havent scene that one i mostly see the other ones and now i cant even think of the names.

    2. Perry is really promoting old people to keep it going.
