UK Muscle Lotions

A heartless tyke complains "ugh, another day with Granny and her pain" at the start of this ad, only for the ungrateful little sod to be surprised when he finds she can "jump around like a kangaroo" thanks to Voltarol. Let's hope the pain relief gel also encourages her to deliver the kind of kick to his behind that the said marsupial is famed for.

A husband is fed up to the back teeth with his wife's new-found energy now that Voltarol gel has eased her knee pain. As she urges him to join her on bike rides and the dance floor he sets his jaw like James Bolam playing Harold Shipman, and we can only assume the flicker of a smile that plays on his face at the end is because he spots his chance to bludgeon her to death with his newspaper.

There are an awful lot of cats with internal dialogues prowling around the advertising world just now - and all so well-spoken! Could it be something to do with internet sensation Grumpy Cat? This lookalikey is complaining about the lack of peace he's getting at home because Voltarol has relieved his owner's niggling knee pain and she's so active there's no lap time available any more.

A man at a staid party deludes himself into thinking he has the dance moves of Christopher Walken after Voltarol banishes his muscular soreness. He shocks the prim gathering while his wife watches on, thinking he's hot. He's really not. It's all a bit creepy. Shame, because this has the potential to be entertaining and hardworking... but it just doesn't have the panache to pull it off properly.

A woman gets through her busy day pain-free thanks to Voltarol, which gives her "the joy of movement". The series of tickbox scenarios are unfortunately all so much wallpaper; the only remotely interesting bit is where you glimpse the illustration of bone and sinew under the skin. And we emphasise 'remotely'.

Some chap felt a whole lot safer last week when his wife was virtually incapacitated by back pain. Now, thanks to the anti-inflammatory powers of the advertised pain relief, she's able to whup his ass on the tennis court again. Mind you, he doesn't specifically say that her poorer game was the only reason he felt safe before.

If you suffer from back pain then you should try tackling the source of the discomfort rather than... well, we're not sure what people have been trying that doesn't aim to do this but we assume it's foolish or Voltarol wouldn't feel the need to disavow them.

A woman might not be able to create an authentic looking rabbit when using her hands to make shadow puppets for her grand-daughter but thanks to the pain-killing properties of the advertised product, she'll be able to continue with gay abandon and keep the child happy for literally minutes.

Presumably, Alan Partridge wasn't available to do the voiceover for this commercial so they had to settle for the next best thing. Perhaps the strange pseudo-macho tone is designed to reassure men that rubbing cream into a muscle injury doesn't make them homosexual.

"Attracted To Pain"

According to this ad, Voltarol is attracted to pain... does that make it the Max Mosley of pharmaceutical products? A man is able to throw a stick for the dog to fetch after rubbing the advertised product on his sore elbow... frankly, DAVID would rather have a sore elbow than participate in a game of fetch with an obsequious quadruped.
