Lipitor ads: Worse lip-synching than Britney Spears?

For about a year and half now, Dr. Robert Jarvik, inventor of the artificial heart, has been a paid endorser for the cholesterol-lowering drug Lipitor. Pfizer keeps using Jarvik despite his being branded a “fop” who goes over like a lead balloon by the all-powerful John Mack. He’s also been called “Gollum-y” by Dr. Michael Eades. And NBC has questioned whether his medical credentials are all they’re hyped up to be.

But there’s something else that bugs us about Jarvik’s commercials: the audio track. Is it just me, or does it sound like Jarvik’s lines have been dubbed over later rather than recorded along with the video? It’s creepy.

Of course it’s dubbed as are many drug commercials — I think the Requip one is much creepier!

BTW, I haven’t called Jarvik a fop or accused him of being gay in quite a while. But in the latest comm’l where he jogs with his son, he selects baby blue running shoes, which reactivated my “gaydar”.

Jarvik did not come as a suprise to me, considering they got dole to pitch viagra several years ago.
