We've listened several times now, but it still sounds to us like this young woman is saying: "So I'm going to show you three V05 Shit Myself hairsprays" at the start. Once you get past that, you can see that it's quite a shrewdly put-together ad for the young teen market... but it's a struggle to quell that question echoing round and round: "Why would you buy a product called Shit Myself?"

A return to the emergency room used in this tongue-in-cheek campaign has a woman who has had her hair 'rescued' by the dedication of the 'doctors' asking what she can do to repay her debt to them. This looks like a compilation from the previous ads rather than anything newly filmed.

Short post script to earlier ad which depicted a couple of radical Chinese students expressing their non-conformity through the use of hair gel. here the male half of the pairing conceals his styling beneath the lid of his desk and twice emerges with a different look.

Alberto doesn't mind losing the opportunity to do business in China by the looks of things as their latest ad depicts a pair of non-conformists in the People's Republic. They stick their thumb up to uniformity by styling their hair and then make a joyous dash for freedom. God bless Alberto.

A grey office drone engaged in rubber-stamping is liberated by foxy girl in red dress. Why she picked him to extreme style and how she got the job in the first place remain a mystery.

"Fading Fast"

Similar but more successful use of a medical metaphor as in previous ad has a crash team rushing a woman into the emergency room after they find her using an ordinary colour care product in the shower. Once she has recovered the doctor asks her out in cheesy soap fashion.

"Emergency Room"

17 Aug 2005
The bad hair day cliché is taken to its logical conclusion in an ad that doesn't quite manage to come across as a spoof. Set in an emergency room, we see doctors and nurses treating the afflicted woman as if she has a genuine medical emergency.
