    Unless this is supposed to be Nietzschian-level sarcastic cynicism, I don't see why this is funny. And even if it is that cynical it's still not funny.

    To all you nay-sayers... how is that not funny?
    People need to loosen up a little and have a laugh every now and again - it would go a long way toward making this a better world.

    then happy fathers day to you.

    Yeah, if you think this is NOT funny then you are too stupid to get it. This could be for number of reasons, most likely, you have never had to use a condom before so you know a damn thing about Durex. Less likely, you dont know how to read.
    Thanks for posting this, it truly got me laughing aloud.

    When it was explained and I got it I still didn't find it funny...
    Maybe because we don't have that brand over here.
    Still by classifying it as
    "The funniest fathers day add yet"
    Well that person doesn't really get out much.

  29. Avatar for Klepto
    Klepto June 9th, 2007

    The only reason that people don't find it funny is either because they don't get that this is a condom company because they've never been laid before in their life, or because they have no sense of humor. If you dont have a sense of humor, please get one but I cannot help you if you cant get laid.
    BTW this joke was hilarious--thank you for posting. Advertising for condom companies must be tricky because they have to make something that can be read by all audiences of all ages but still carry their meaning...hard to balance that!

    Yes we are Americans. If you don't like the joke, then go away. We think its funny, and we dont care if you feel otherwise, noob.
    And for the record, a durex broke on me last night! That makes this ad a little inaccurate, but funny nonetheless.

    I'm of an age where Trojan is the only condom company that I'm familiar with. I no longer have to worry about such things, so the Durex name is unfamiliar. Until I scrolled down to these comments, I had no clue what that ad was about.
    A very funny ad. Kudos to the creator.

    Eh. so/so. funny enough ya, and I know funny I laugh at damn near everything. took me a moment to get it.
    Only problem is that durex makes really bad condoms. I only used one once...or at least tried. <<; I won't say I'm big , but the thing was tight, uncomfortable, and kinda dry, brand new box too.
    Long live Trojan.

    OK, so I didn't get it at first either -- figured durex was some kind of software vendor (hmm, perhaps software and condoms should be used in the same sentence). Anyway, haven't needed a condom in years -- been V-safe for 10 years.

    1) It is funny
    2) Durex started out as an UK brand
    3) Durex is the world market leader
    4) Not all things are American
    5) If you have problems using a Durex then you shouldn't be having sex because we sure don't need your stupid genes.
    Funniest line in the comments must be by Sky who complains that Durex condoms are no good because amoung other things they are tight. Sheesh, what did he expect.. that it would be loose?

    Wow. For those of you who are Jeff, you are dumb. The point is that people who used their competitors condoms are now fathers because the condoms broke.
    Luckily for you, you can actually get money for being this stupid. Apply for a disability allowance at your nearest welfare office.

    Fathers don't use condoms? How stupid can you be? Anyone who likes sex but doesn't want 1000 kids might use them. The ad is NOT saying that everyone uses condoms. It is saying if you don't use Durex, it's possible you'll be celebrating Father's Day.
    To everyone who breaks them all the time, cut your fingernails. We've been using Durex exclusively for TWELVE years, and never had a failure.

    Durex condoms are so bad, in so many ways!
    They break, and it's not because nails;
    They are smaller than should be; are they meant for kids ?
    They are in all Europe, i think: they are in Romania...
    They are not well lubricated. So, if you don't break it in the first 5 minutes, it dries out...
    They make lubricants, as well. Those are bad also!(cause irritation)
