Saudis fumed over sex pill ad

VIDEO - Viewers of Saudi Arabia's Channel One expressed rage over a commercial for a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction.

Channel One is state-owned and usually broadcasts conservative, family-oriented programs.

TV ad on Saudi television

In the 21-second ad for "Snafi," a man is seen entering his home while his wife sits by the living room table with their three children.

"How are the kids?" he asks.

"They’ve finished all their chores, and you, Abu Faisel, don't forget your chore," the wife responds.

The husband looks at the children, smiles, and slips into a room – apparently the bedroom - with his wife.

Then the slogan "Snafi – it does the job" appears on the screen with a promise of "up to 36 hours of stiffness."

Viewers flooded the Internet with angry responses to the commercial, and, according to Saudi media, many of them urged the channel's management to "set boundaries."

"I can't believe Channel One in Saudi Arabia did this. It has become like (the privately-owned station) MBC," one viewer said in a text message.

The commercial was posted on YouTube for a short while before being removed.

It remains unclear whether Channel One has removed the ad permanently in light of the harsh responses.

A 36 hour boner? I take it this is marketed toward guys that can pee while standing on their hands.

36 hours???

Holy fuck!

I GOTTA get me some of that stuff. The only way I can have a boner for hours is if I keep, uh, "encouraging" it.

Cab you imagine walking around for a day & a half with a pitched tent?

It'll turn some heads. Oh yeah.

Cheers! :bottle:

This ad isn't representative of the average Saudi person. The family in this commercial isn't even living in a cave for ffs.

"Father" of 55 children arrested in suspected benefits scam

PARIS (Reuters) – A Paris man who registered 55 children by 55 different mothers faces up to 10 years in jail and fines for suspected paternity fraud and for helping to obtain residency under false pretences, police said on Friday.

The 54 year-old of African origin, who authorities did not identify, was arrested in his two-room flat in Paris during a police raid which yielded documents showing more than 50 people were registered as living at that address.

Police suspect the man was involved in a social benefits scam which could have been costing the state over 1 million euros ($1.27 million) annually in claims by the mothers.

"At the moment 42 women have been identified and each claim that the man is the biological father of their child," Paris police said in a statement.

Authorities said the man claimed he met the women at bars, night spots and occasionally during visits to their home countries, including Senegal, Cameroon and Mali.

For a fee of 150 to 200 euros, he registered the children and their mothers with French authorities, enabling them to obtain residency permits and claim social benefits.

Some of the mothers told authorities they had received up to about 7,500 euros on various monthly allowances.

"Investigations are on-going and an investigating magistrate will decide whether DNA tests have to be administered to determine the children's paternity," a police spokesman said.
