Viagra Man? Please say it ain’t so.

I’ve seen super hero style imagery used to promote any number of items over the years and with the rise of super heroes in popular culture, we’ve seen much more of it recently. Some of it good, most of it embarrassing.

This past weekend I found myself in Ensenada, Mexico and as I walked down a street in their down town I passed this pharmacy who found a unique way to promote one of the many drugs they sell. Is this Viagra Man’s Fortress of Solidness? His Boner Cave? The Wang Watchtower?

I apologize for inflicting those horridly cliched jokes on you, but I think you can understand knowing I had to experience this bit of advertising.

They have to do eye-catching displays like that due to the “stiff” competition.
