Anyone else notice that the models used as PWDs for device advertising (pumps, CGMs, accessories, meters, etc.) seem to be, well, unrepresentative of the normal attractiveness of most people? Put more succinctly, they're usually, crudely put, hot!
No surprise there -- we're talking Madison Ave., after all. What made this noteworthy to me though was catching the fact that the models used to advertise pharmaceuticals to PWDs -- Victoza, Levemir, etc. -- are the exact opposite... usually pudgy, plain ordinary sort of folk. We had an interesting discussion over how unrepresentative this is of real PWDs last week or two.
Anyway, nothing earth-shattering here. Just some light conversation with my D family. It's made me smile from the day I got my Dexcom G4 starter kit that the picture used in many places showing placement of the sensor on the abdomen is of a sexy, fit, attractive female tummy/waist, rather than slapping it on Jim Joe-Bob's generous beer-gut spare tire.
Might not sell as many, you think?
