New coaster commercial for....condoms?

Wednesday, January 8, 2003 5:08 AM

That's right! I just saw a commercial on MTV where a guy is getting on an SLC and doesn't feel like putting on his restraint this time. He said that it constricts him and he wants to feel free. The Ride Op (a mechanic) finally gives in and says "Ok, just this once."

The coaster goes around, and of course, he's not there. Goes to show you that if you do it without protection, you can die. LOL!

That commercial is great! If I could just convince The Beast ops to let me go one without a restraint!

Oblivion condoms! They even had the Oblivion "arrow" logo on them! LOL!

Why beast? Restraints make little difference on a non airtime ride. WHY NOT SHIVERING TIMBERS!

I don't know man, maybe cause I could come back alive on Beast without a restraint. I'm not suicidal. If I was suicidal, I'd pick GA Cyclone for a no restraint ride.

I too saw this commercial, nice way of getting a message across. The thing I found most humorous was the fact that he *died* on a SLC :o)

I haven't seen the commercial yet but it sounds funny. I guess they could of given the guy a choice of "protection"........MForce (ultra-thin), Ghostrider (snugger fit), Screachin Eagle (extra room), Son Of Beast (rough rider), or even the Rollersoaker (lubed). How about Shivering Timbers (ribbed....for her pleasure?)

Ok, mind out of the gutter now. :-)

That was actually pretty good, Tina!

Seriously though, I want an Oblivion condom..........

Edit: It's an MTV PSA commercial. Not online that I'm aware of. Try Kazaa.

I remember hearing them of Rob Coker's old Oblivion ride review, and I thought to myself "what?!?"

When I visited the park later that year, I was surprised to find out he was indeed not joking ;)

I havn't seen the add yet, but it sounds great, and I'll look for it.

BTW, what SLC was it?

I believe they are available at the M:TR gift shop, as well.

I'm actually not convinced you WOULD fly out of an SLC though. Now GaCyclone, there's not doubt. For it almost killed me, literally. Ask Eric and Kris.
