What do the two bathtubs in the Cialis commercials mean?

Asked by cockswain (15249points) February 22nd, 2011

Seriously, been seeing these for years and have asked many people for their interpretation. No one I’ve met can offer a plausible explanation why you always see two people sitting in separate bathtubs in various locations.

What does this mean? For real.

I have absolutely no clue. I’ve been wondering the same thing myself. I thought maybe I was just incredibly naive and completely unaware of the millions of people that were out there having incredible dual bathtub sex that I was missing out on. But just knowing that someone as sexually alive and vibrant and studly as you @cockswain, is as confused as I am by this, makes me feel a whole lot better. Or not. :-)

As I began reading your answer, I thought “what the hell kind of answer is this?” Then I got to the end and was very satisfied with it.

Probably just seen as more “proper” that the couple in one bathtub. Sorta like when 50s sitcom couples had two beds, but then the wife would be pregnant in season 3…

@cockswain I live to satisfy you, you should know that by now. :-)

@cockswain As much as I love basking in the warm afterglow, I don’t want this thread to get too off track because I really do want to know what the hell the two bathtubs in the Cialis commercials is about. Think with your other head for right now, O.K.? It’s your question after all. :-)

I really don’t think anyone on the planet knows the answer

You may be right. It’s just one of the those “What the hell?” things that you eats away at you; the wondering, you know.

I think they’re trying to say that with Cialis, you’ll have enough sexual energy and confidence to not want to bathe together, hence the second tub. It’s like having a second refrigerator, something I like to call the “Two Fridge Theory”. More importantly, why the hell are these bathtubs everywhere except in bathrooms?

@Joker94 Yes, exactly, that the other great Cialis two bathtub mystery. Why are these two bathtubs out there on the beach, or wherever the heck they are, completely, at least apparently unplumbed? Who would make the effort to haul two either ceramic or cast iron bathtubs out in to the middle of nowhere, without being connected to a water or sewer system and then make sure that they took Cialis just in case, some time in a 24 hour period they might want to have sex somewhere in or around their unplumbed bathtubs? Can’t take Viagra because that would only give them a window of a couple or a few hours.

@lillycoyote Exactly. It doesn’t add up. If you’ve got enough stamina to lug two bathtubs out to God knows where, why would you use it all up lugging two bathtubs out to God knows where?!

the actors are too fat for one tub

Maybe it’s that because of the 36 hour (or is it 72 hour) release, you can choose to take separate baths – and then when you touch fingers, bam, ready to go.

All right. Here’s the real answer. The theme is that you can get a sexual urge any time, right? It’s so strong that you just look at your partner and your house flies away and you’re in a woods or on a beach. Now we’re in fantasyland. The tubs are part of the fantasy. Have you ever seen any water in those tubs? No, you have not. Where did the couple’s clothes go? They don’t show that part either. The ad wants you to fantasize about what could be in your minds to get away from your sexual urges, because, in reality, the product doesn’t always work.
No. I’m just fooling with you. The true answer is that the studio prop people found two small tubs from a house that was being torn down. They were such cute tubs that they talked the advertising department into building a commercial around them. The models are shown in the tubs and their picture is photo-shopped into the outdoor scenes. They want the audience to notice all this and buy the product. I can’t remember the name of it but I think it can give a man a 4 hour erection, but he might have to quick run to his doctor if it lasts too long. Ah! That’s where the fantasy come in.

@Sunny2 Viagra, and that goes for all ED medication.

It’s a subtle message that this stuff is only for people with sufficient income to be able to afford two bathtubs.

LuckyGuy's avatar

I thought the story line revolved around an F4 tornado. I figure if the stuff worked they would be in the same tub – or bent over one.
Some ad exec team took home a pile of money for that one.

cockswain's avatar

I should offer $50 for the correct answer, maybe that would help. I’ve seriously been asking for years. No one knows. It’s a great mystery.

john65pennington's avatar

The two bathtubs are strictly for commercial appeal.

It made you ask this question, right? And, you remembered it was for Cialis, right?

Case closed.

cockswain's avatar

There must be more to it than that. If anything, the ambiguity angers me to the point that if I had to choose a boner med, I’d take Levitra or Viagra out of spite.

Haleth's avatar

I think @MyNewtBoobs is on the right track. This stuff is meant to appeal to an older audience, right?

It signifies that the pill not only allows the guy’s wang to become erect, it also extends it so that he can poke her from a yard away.
