Advertising is all about selling shit and what the creators of SquatyPotty have done here is the ultimate in dream factory product marketing. These guys will push a lot of plastic stools through their distribution pipeline and make people feel like they're eating delicious unicorn poop. Working on multiple levels the commercial is informative, illuminating, humorous, scientific and fantasy all wrapped into one tidy package. At a meta-level it is one of the most subversive advertisements ever created as it lays bare-bottom the base purpose of ALL advertising in consumer culture. Bravo!
