WATCH BELOW: Sophie Monk AD LYNX Body Buffer Cleans Your Balls. Story continues below...
“Balls. Nobody wants to play with them when they’re dirty. That’s why you have to keep your balls clean,” she deadpans to the audience, before launching into a demonstration that shows soap can’t do the trick on an old soccer ball.
“Well, how can guys clean their balls properly so they’re more enjoyable to play with?” asks the host.
“Well finally there’s a tool that can get the job done. The Lynx buffer – cleans your balls,” Sophie says.
The studio audience is then invited to ask questions about the cleaning of their own balls – ‘hairy’ tennis balls, a ‘giant ball sack’ of soccer balls, an cricket balls that have been ‘rubbed against my trousers for hours’.
Her final client, an older gentleman, asks for help with his ‘saggy old balls’.
The ad, which aired in 2012 around the time of the London Olympics, was met with many complaints about its’ crass nature, and was eventually removed from television.
However, posed as a throwback, the ad seems to hold up as pretty amusing, at least to Sophie, who shared the entire commercial across her stories.
“Seeing the Olympics are on,” she captioned the story.
The throwback, and the ad itself, seem to be very in line with Sophie and her brand – she is constantly describing herself as a bogan and using that label to make others laugh.
We hope to see some more comedic advertising from the TV presenter in the future.
