40 years of faulty wiring

Because You’re Worth It


You know that cool L’Oreal Preference hair colour commercial where the spokes model (usually one beautiful celebrity or another) encourages women to spend the money on quality hair colour (that’s a matter of opinion), and star makes that cool statement, “Because you’re worth it.” I love that statement. Are we worth it? Damned right.

catThe idea I am leading up to is this: you’re also familiar with the program Vanity Insanity, an examination of the plastic surgery craze that has swept the nation in the past 10 or so years. Of course you’ve probably googled the internet and seen utterly terrifying pics of before and after procedures that have gone wrong. Worse, there are women and men who believe their bizarre appearance is an improvement on their natural looks. That’s what I call insanity.

Combine that sentence with some disastrous cosmetic surgery photographs, and consider what a unique advertisement to go plastic that would be. If you were a plastic surgeon who was actually proud of her/his work and didn’t see anything wrong with an utterly horrifying job, that could be rather humorous. To that end, here is my suggested commercial campaign to all of you surgeons and vanity insanity wannabes out there who just don’t have a sane perspective on so-called surgical improvements to one’s appearance:


Because, You’re Worth It…..

  1. Two women come to mind who have ruined themselves with plastic surgery…Lark Voorhees from “Saved By the Bell” and Jenna Jameson (former porn star). Both were so pretty until they decided to do that to their faces.

    Also, the late porn star Lolo Ferrari…when she died, she’d had over 100 surgeries on her entire body, not to mention her face.
    She looked like a freak show. It’s sad what low self-esteem can do.

    I’m not against cosmetic surgery; I want breast implants, but not to the point of being ridiculous.
    And I’ve considered fixing my nose to be a bit smaller. That’s about it; some people get carried away.

    • Yes there are people who go overboard with surgery. I believe it’s addictive. However, you are also considering plastic surgery so you are as vulnerable to the commercial concept of beauty as these women.
