What? But... why? Really?

Have you guys seen this ad?

It's for a no touch handsoap dispenser. Because people with gross, germy hands are putting them all over the handsoap pump. Ew.

Then again, presumably, the action that immediately follows the handsoap pump is, you know, a handwash. It's hard to fathom another reason why you'd be pumping handsoap.

This is the thing you buy right before you wrap all your furniture in plastic, right? This is like something that Howard Hughes would have installed in his private suite on the Spruce Goose? Are we really living in a time when people are worried about getting their hands dirty immediately prior to washing them?

This baffles me as much as those bathtub Cialis ads. I just ... what?
