Back again.

Hi Secret,
Me again. No, this isn't another rant about my old deodorant. (Not that I've moved on.) This is about your ads. Now, I don't know much about advertising. All I know is that I see a lot of ads, and I know how I feel about them. And your new commercial? The one for your "flawless" deodorant? (For the record, this is the replacement I bought. I haven't used it yet.)
It's a horrible commercial! First of all, that girl? Is really annoying. I kind of want to smack her in the face while she flaunts her armpits around the city unnecessarily. That isn't my main concern, though. And since I know you're dying to hear about it, I'll enlighten you.
It's not the kind of commercial that actually tells you anything! She says, "I'll give you 5 reasons why this deodorant will make you forget your old one." (Which I doubt.)
And then she just chats with the people around her as she flashes her pits. So if you're like me and look away once she starts to bug you, you don't notice that those reasons are printed on the screen! And then after a short wait, you realize that you haven't heard any reasons, so you look up. By then, she's onto reason number 4 or 5! So I have witnessed this commercial hundreds of times but have yet to learn why it's a superior product.
The only things I have learned? You took away my deodorant and hire irritating actresses.
Solitarily yours,
Bitter Amanda
