Racist Viagra Ad Claims South Will Rise Again

By JACK ARNHOLZ and ETHAN BEVINGTON Apr. 13, 2017

A controversial new Viagra ad released this week used the slogan, “The South Will Rise Again.” The ad reportedly is targeted toward racists.

“We think the slogan will strike a cord with Southern racists with erectile dysfunction,” said Emma Nelson, a marketing executive at Viagra. “Both the possibility of getting an erection and the South rising again may have seemed very unlikely to this demographic, however, due to our great product and a few other recent circumstances, both now seem possible.”

Viagra’s pharmaceutical rival, Cialis, has criticized the new ad. “Cialis has been running racist commercials for years,” said Peter Brown, a representative for the drug. “What do you think the deal was with those separate bathtubs?”
