When washing my face this morning, I noticed that my Target brand Deep Clean Cream Cleanser (compare to Neutrogena Deep Clean® Cream Cleanser) had the following phrase on the front of the bottle:
Won’t Clog Pores
First off, if we’re comparing to the Neutrogena brand, then we shouldn’t be worried about this cleanser clogging pores (because the Neutrogena one doesn’t clog pores, either). Unless, in our comparison, we actually do find out that the difference is that the Target brand does clog pores. But even then, tell me something, who purposefully goes out and looks to buy a face cleaning product that actually clogs pores? That’s right, no one. So why does Target think it’s neccessary to put that on the tube? I don’t know why, but then I started to think about what other things Target might sell one day, and what it might say on the package...
Target Toothbrushes (Compare to Oral-B): Won’t Make Teeth Dirty
Target Facial Tissue (Compare to Puffs): Won’t Allow Snot To Hit Your Hands
Target Vacuums (Compare to Hoover): Won’t Spit Dirt On To Your Floor
Target Condoms (Compare to Trojan): Won’t Get Girl Pregnant (99% Of The Time)
Target SUV (Compare to Jeep): Won’t Drive Under Water
I might have a future in marketing!
