It's still good, it's still good!-That the name I assigned to the Valtrex commercials that used to run ad naseum on any given cable channel. Valtrex is a treatment for genital herpes. You know the ad where this attractive brunette and her boyfriend frolicked in the sand, rode bikes and went for romantic walks? They played in the surf and looked longingly into each others eyes and all I thought about was adding a voice over that said "It's still good, it's still good!"Of course, I am making a possibly incorrect assumption that she is the one with the gift that keeps on giving. Maybe he's the one whose carrying around a sack full of herpes virus. Perhaps her yammi's as clean as day she was born! Who knows? Anyway, the implied message of the the commercial is that you can have cock rot or a coochie full of bugs and still have an active sex life with the hunk/hottie of your choice.
I am going out on a limb here. I think the brunette in the Valtrex commercial is an actress named Michele Hicks. I say this because the actress that played Mara Sewell on The Shield in the third season bears a strong resemblance to Ms. Sand Frollicker from the ad. I got hit in the head with the Valtrex thing so often that I started to put two and two together. I looked it up on the net but I can't find a website that lists what actors do which commercials.
