    Rob Lowe's 'painfully awkward' DirecTV ad should be removed, shy bladder group says

    A DIRECTV commercial features Rob Lowe comparing DIRECTV and Cable services with the help of a character called "Painfully Awkward Rob Lowe." (Credit: DIRECTV)


    Shy bladder sufferers want DirecTV to stop airing a television ad where a "painfully awkward" actor Rob Lowe says that he can't urinate in public.

    The satellite TV company suggests its critics should be able to take a joke.

    Part of a campaign to encourage people to switch from cable, the ad features two Lowes: a handsome one in a slick suit who claims to be a DirecTV customer, and a goofy-looking Lowe wearing a fanny pack with his hair parted in the middle. "Painfully awkward" Lowe is a cable customer.

    The ad touts DirecTV's service, saying cable makes subscribers wait.

    "Fact: I can't go with other people in the room," said awkward Lowe, standing at a urinal.

    The ad is in poor taste and ridicules a serious problem, said Steve Soifer, CEO of the International Paruresis Association, which estimates that some 7 percent of Americans have some form of "shy bladder syndrome."

    "We don't mind if people have a little fun with it," said Soifer, a social work professor at the University of Memphis. "It's a situation that a lot of people don't understand. In this particular case, the portrayal is making it look ridiculous, that this guy is a loser for having a problem.


    "What if he didn't have a leg or an arm?" he said. "Are you going to make fun of them?"

    Members of his group have written and called DirecTV, asking that the ad be removed. But Darris Gringeri, spokesman for DirecTV, said it won't.

    "The ads will continue to run for the vast majority of viewers who have told us they enjoy the spots and understand that, like all of our commercials, they take place in a fantasy world ad are not based in reality," Gringeri said.

    Those ads should be removed because Rob Lowe is a dick. Reason enough.

    Rob Lowe pretends to be like a normal "non handsome" person and makes fun of those of us not born to look like him.

    Fuck off, loser.

    Welcome to liberal America. Where every group, no matter how stupid has a voice, and where being offended is priority number 1.

    Sad, but I'm sure PC Howie would agree with this. He sits down to pee.

    Based on the size of Rob Lowe's enormous dick he would have no problem urinating in public. If you saw his sex tape from a few years ago it is porn star huge.

    No one who looks as good as Rob Lowe should be blessed with a dick that big. At least Jonah Falcon looks like a douche bag.

    Are you sure it didn't just look extra large because it was positioned right next to an under age teen?
