I heard something very disturbing on the radio this morning.  It consisted of a conversation between a women with a think eastern european accent and a man.  It went something like this:

W – If you were a car, what kind of car would you be?
M – fast and powerful and big (or something to that effect)
W – If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?
M – I’d be a fox, tricky and slippery
W – If you were a building, what kind of building would you be?(this is when I switched stations, but quickly switched back, I was hoping it was an Ax commercial, and I think those are hilarious)
M – Tall and sleek and imposing
W – If you were a fragrance, Donald, what kind of fragrance would you be? (I was holding my breath for the answer to this one).
M – I would smell like success and power and success and power and….success(and power).
W – And what would that smell like?
M – It would smell like me – Donald Trump – come closer to me and take a whiff – any man who wears my fragrance will be able to have any women he wants and make millions of dollars(okay, so I made up the millions of dollars part, but I swear it said have any women he wants and it did say come closer and see for yourself).

At this point in the dialog I was waiting for the morning show people to crack up and start laughing and for it to all be a stupid joke.  It was truly one of the most absurd commercials I have heard in a long time – it also lasted about three minutes. But instead of that, the commercial continued on to tell me if I was a man to buy the fragrance and if I was a woman to buy the fragrance for all the men in my life – and that it was a Macy’s – Riches exclusive.  And for everyone who has always wanted to smell like ole Donald – here is where you can order it online for the bargin price of $60.  I like the description:
"The uncompromising men’s fragrance. Persuasive, commanding, determined. A passion for power. Inspired by the man who demands the best – and achieves it."
I mean seriously – isn’t that what every women is looking for, an uncompromising, commanding, manipulating (that is what I get out of persuasive) man with a passion for power and a comb over?  Somehow I doubt this is every girl’s dream, maybe more a nightmare.
