Interesting YouTube Discussion about the Nads Infomercial

If you’ve ever read the comments the users of YouTube leave on the video pages, you know that these are for the most part semi-literate and confusing.

Because so many of these comments are brief, the reader does not have sufficient context to know what the user is even talking about. For example, one comment on a video might say just “that sucks!” Reading such a comment we don’t know if the person means that the video “sucks” in its original context , if it “sucks” that it is on YouTube at all, or if a specific someone or something featured in the video “sucks.”

Recently, however, an interesting exchange broke out on YouTube about the video from the Nad’s infomercial featuring the bearded lady. I think this back and forth between YouTube users ladyvee7110 and Moleysmokes is a pretty funny example of two people talking right past each other.

First, here is the video:

And the comments:

ladyvee7110: I tried using this stuff for my eyebrows. It doesn’t work. Maybe if I had chin hair it would’ve worked better?

Moleysmokes: Nads didnt work on your eyebrows?? Maybe you’re putting them in the wrong place then? 🙂

ladyvee7110: Yeah, I guess…didn’t work for me. Like I said, works best for chin hair which I don’t have. It works best if you have a beard like the lady in the commercial ;o).

Moleysmokes: Ahh right o, well you really shouldnt give up on nads, all the girls i know love mine 🙂

ladyvee7110: Nah…I’ve gone back to the ole trusty standbys of waxing and pucking. Ouch! A bit painful but a lease those work…for me.

Moleysmokes: Are you American by any chance? Just if so im English and Nads is another term for a mans bollocks and i was takin the mickey (Being a man) and now feel really bad cos you didnt know. Sorry! 🙂

ladyvee7110: Yeah I know…another term for balls is nads but unless you’re not looking at this video along with the rest of us, the Nads I’m referring to is the hair removal product. I mean, come on. Were you trying to be funny and/or insulting? I know it’s hard for you, but please get your mind out of the gutter.

ladyvee7110: I feel bad for you that you did a search for Nads because you wanted to see a man’s balls or “bullocks” as you put it, but instead the only video you get to see is a hair removal product. If that’s what you wanted to see maybe you should’ve Googled it or rented a video. You won’t find that on YouTube.

Moleysmokes: Oh my god, chill out, Jesus Christ. Dont judge me, i was just pulling your plonker, if i was that much of a tit, or trying to insult you, why would i have admitted i was taking the piss? Typical woman, if you’re honest it gets you no-where. You really need to lighten up.

ladyvee7110: Whatever man…

Once each person finally understood where the other was coming from, it really didn’t help them to get along!

By the way, I think Moleysmokes may use more Britishisms per capita than any other human being on the planet!

  • “Pulling your plonker” and “taking the piss” sound even filthier than Nads!
