 Complaints Over Anti-Impotence Pill Ad in Saudi Arabia

In some unexpected news, an ad for a Viagra-like anti-impotence pill has created public uproar in Saudi Arabia.

The 20-second long ad shows a box of Snafi, a Viagra-style pill being used by a family man, reports The Daily Mail.


In the scene, a father, clad in a traditional Middle Eastern headdress, returns home to his wife and children.

They speak in Arabic, with the man asking, "How are the kids?"

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

As the couple slip away, the slogan 'Snafi - it does the job' appears on the screen with a promise of 'up to 36 hours of stiffness.'

Broadcaster Channel One was reportedly inundated with complaints about the ad.

"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.
