There is a new Eliquis commercial with a guy sitting at a table with his wife and he is discussing this drug and why he uses it,etc.
There is nobody else in the room besides the two of them.
Who the heck is he supposed to be looking at and talking to?
Just bugs the heck out of me....(doesn't take much, huh?)

Yeah, all he's doing is looking (with his wife) at an old picture of himself shooting hoops, and he launches into a long spiel about the heart medication.  His wife just wanted to look at old pics; she didn't wanna hear all that sh*t.  So, she starts to drift.  Maybe that's why he looks to the side over at no one in particular.  Oxygen molecules might be more interested.

NO KIDDING!
The friggin' computer is always displaying RED, as in blood cells - especially as in oxy-deprived ones.
"Take this stuff and you'll feel better, already - but you may bleed like a 'knife-stuck-bitch'..."
This stuff will help keep you from grabbing your 'Mud Monkey Merit Badge', or maybe it will kill you all the same...I dunno...
I'm SO excited to hear about this stuff.
In fact, I wish I never heard of it.

This is just one of many "interview/exposition" ads supposedly happening impromptu.  The lines are delivered haltingly, as if to be thinking of what to say next.
I have no idea what is up with the "Look at you!" at the beginning, nor with the sympathetic squeeze of his hand when he says something about no increased bleeding.
And at the end, wifey sits inside the house watching admirably as hubby sinks a field goal.

As stupid as this ad is, I wish my insurance would cover the medication. I take Warferin, and getting poked with a needle once a week is getting really tiresome.

Hey, the guy just "wondered if I could up my game."..."for treatment of A-fib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart vavle problem..." He is pretending to have a casual conversation with an invisible person who happens to be at the dining table with him and his wife, but what he says and how he says it is just so obviously not an off-the-cuff casual conversation that it comes across as disingenuous--no person other than an actor paid to memorize those lines would say what this guy says, while his wife looks on adoringly. Just so phony that i actually hate it for only that reason! And somebody is getting paid to decide that this is a good commercial to run!

Someone in iSpot noted that the base of the basketball backboard thing (the current one) is on backwards.

Maybe he set it up after he had his stroke??

I hate all prescription drugs ads, especially the vague ads where it doesn't even tell you what the drug is for; it's just assumed that you're omniscient or otherwise you have to "ask your doctor" if that drug is right for you. Am I supposed to call my doctor every time I see an ad for a new drug to see if I should be taking it? Sounds like it.

One of the things I hate most about drug ads are the dorky names they come up with for the drugs...meaningless, made up words such as "Eliquis" or "Warfarin" or "Abilify" (hell, spellchecker has no idea what to do with them - Eliquis becomes "Cliquish"). They sort of resemble real English words (Eloquent, Warfare, Ability), so why not just use those real words and be done with it?

Okay, the basketball dude. Apparently he was a stud hoops star back in the day, and he still got game, though just in the driveway against a guy who might or might not be his son. Either way, the drug helps him "up my game" whatever that's supposed to mean. Never mind that his shooting form is horrible and that he needs the backboard to make a shot, he can still beat the kid. Great.

The best part of the ad is when he's touting the benefits... like it causes less major bleeding than Warfarin. Think about that... less major bleeding. Less major bleeding! Great, a drug that only causes LESS "major bleeding". I can hardly wait to take it. Then the voiceover guy says in some instances it can cause "FATAL bleeding" which I guess is a bit worse that less major bleeding, since generally you DIE from fatal bleeding or it wouldn't be "fatal" by definition. So these guys want me to ask my doctor if a drug that can possibly cause me to bleed to death is "right for me", as long as it allows me to excel at H-O-R-S-E in the driveway? Unbelievable.

Godd*mn, he puts more ridiculous pauses in his speech than friggin' William Shatner.

I pause.  At random intervals. when I'm talking.  just to.  make sure. you are paying. attention. to our crappy. drug commercial.

"Eliquis" sounds like it could be some sort of dick medication; e.g., it would make your tallywhacker as big as a horse's. LOL

That's what I thought the meds were for to begin with! LOL  Ele for "Elevate" and Quis for "Equus," as in horse.

"Elevate [Hold] your horses, varmint!" LOL

There's probably a warning that if you mix Eliquis with those little blue sex pills, your dick will explode like an overinflated balloon.  Or your heart will, if it (the sex) is that good....
