Living the high life in a post-acne world

Clearasil’s May Cause Confidence Web site is what Video Jug would be if the people who ran it had never heard or told a joke before. The delivery here is dry enough to qualify as parched. But they’re trying, and there’s actually a lot of interactive media to be found here, like regular video upload contests, daily affirmations you can send to your friends, and confidence-building clips (none of which mention acne treatment, oddly enough) in which ordinary people just like you do and say a whole bunch of random crap that doesn’t go anywhere too funny. The “Guide to Being A Confident Human” videos are pretty good, though, and they make a scientifically proven point: Baron von Excellent is a pretty awesome name.
