This is definitely the first ad I’ve seen in which a ball of pubic hair chats with a pair of boobs. It’s part of Clay Weiner’s “Maturity is overrated” promo campaign for MTV, in which puberty comes to life as various animated characters. Other ads in the series include “Seven Minutes of Heaven,” “Science Class,” “Lunchroom,” “CPR” and “Detention.” The official character names are Boner, Booty, Pubes, Whiz, Lil’ Nips, Zit, Belch, Doo-Doo, Puke, Fart and Booger.
