Valtrex ad clears up student’s self-esteem

HerpesA TV commercial for Valtrex did wonders for Brad Anderson, who suffered the “itching, burning shame” of genital herpes. “Oh, I don’t take the drug,” he tells The Spectrum, the student newspaper at the University of Buffalo. “But the character actors in that commercial taught me to not be embarrassed. I still have a life to live. Ever since then, I’ve been a new man—kayaking, rock climbing, biking, and having sex with as many strangers as possible.” An inspired April Fool’s Day story.
