Earlier today, Durex announced the launch of a new line of products that made everyone tizzy – eggplant (brinjal or baingan)-flavoured condoms. Yeah..you read it right. Eggplant which in India goes by the name of Baingan. But wait ! does this thing really have a flavour ? Means I can not possibly relate to any flavour of Baingan.
And it was sure that people would rant the very idea in twitter. Have a look :
This guy sure made a point.
This girl has evil plans though.
And many people seemed to be excited about it.
And some started to take a dig.
And this one is totally savage.
This girl wished for something else but.
And this girl said something which took the diggers.
I can definitely relate to it.
And this girl makes sense.
But of course, this was all just a hoax. Durex isn’t launching a veggie-flavored dong-sock. Nor, for that matter, will it be launching a hotdog, carrot, or zucchini flavored one. That would be hideously disgusting.
This stunt was part of their effort to introduce a condom emoji, which Durex (quite patronizingly) thinks will make it easier for young people to talk about safe sex.
‘Emojis of this sort will enable young people to overcome embarrassment around the discussion of safe sex, encourage conversation and raise awareness of the importance of using condoms in protecting against sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and AIDS,’ Durex said in a statement last year.
Well thanks because chocolate, strawberry, vanilla…etc..etc are doing good for me atleast. I don’t want baingan, kaddu and karela invoved in this.
