Another mirror-on-the-ceiling ad — This one for a hair-loss product

Mar 7, 2012 By Abraham 9

Yesterday, we saw an ad amusingly featuring a mirror on the ceiling to sell glue. And today we see an ad using an overhead mirror to sell their anti-balding services.

If this was actually installed, that would be really mean. Funny, but mean…

    As a woman with thin hair, I would be mortified if I had to stand under this ad. I would definitely write a letter to the company to complain.

    Trolls may comment and say I’m taking it to the extreme, but they’ve probably never had strangers stop them in grocery stores asking why their hair is so thin and what they plan to do about it (this has really happened!).

      I understand completely. Why some people think they need to point out to me that I have thin hair mystifies me. Do they think I don’t have a mirror?

      I’m sorry. You should have seen the bullying my daughter received when she lost her hair from psoriasis in the 10th grade! It is just horrible the way people can be when you don’t fit their particular idea of normal!

    I understand the intended humor, but it missed the mark. I would not appreciate standing under that mirror. It is one thing to film a TV ad with an actor who is PAID to appear embarrassed. It is quite another to set up strangers to be embarrassed in public. This ad is no more appropriate than a mirrored floor where strangers can look up a woman’s skirts.

    Generally, hair loss in patches signifies alopecia areata. Alopecia areata typically presents with sudden hair loss causing patches to appear on the scalp or other areas of the body. If left untreated, or if the disease does not respond to treatment, complete baldness can result in the affected area, which is referred to as alopecia totalis. When the entire body suffers from complete hair loss, it is referred to as alopecia universalis. It is similar to the effects that occur with chemotherapy.”:
