I'm Here To Snake Your Drain

Love the ad. Its about a drain cleaner and they've managed to make it pervy cos sex sells, but whats really interesting is that they have managed to make it very tongue-in-cheek. Its almost a satirical play on 'sex sells' itself, because the vein it will follow is so predictable and the woman in the commercial is brilliantly campy. When she shuts the door, and opens her hair, and some of the hair gets stuck to her lips (as is possible in real life) makes you realise that this a deliberate attempt to be sexy, and thus not sexy in the way 'sex sells' intends to be. You know what I mean? 
Also, what ridiculously good looking plumbers/produce /supermarket guys.
