Have you heard about PooPourri? No, not potpourri, which is a mixture of dried flowers, leaves, and spices that is used to make a room smell nice. But like potpourri, PooPourri is also used to make a room, or more specifically the bathroom, smell nice even when people need to “poop”. It’s a blend of essential oils that gets rid of bathroom odors.
I heard about this product for the first time yesterday when the ad played before another YouTube video that I wanted to watch. Most of the time I pass over these ads as soon as I can hit “Skip Ad”, but this one definitely held my attention.
The ad shows a cute proper English girl in a party dress and pearls sitting on the toilet in a variety of different settings (nothing graphic -- this is quite kid-friendly if you don’t mind references to, ah, “poop” -- yep, it’s potty humor). It begins with the sound of the toilet flushing, the bathroom stall door opening, and the young woman saying, “You would not believe the motherlode I just dropped.”
She asks, “What can be done about that subtle scent of a .... 300 cow dairy farm?” and the scene switches to a...dairy farm, with her on the toilet. (The blooper video is humorous too, and it does show that she really is sitting on the toilet in the midst of dairy cows.)

I think this is the funniest commercial I've ever seen.
I went on a blind date once years ago, and after we ate rice and beans and some burritos, she ran into the bathroom and her poop exploded. Her poop smelled like if something died in there. I could not get into my bathroom without wearing a mask, for days.
