Sunday Humor: The Abilify Umbrella, Second by Second


Pointless Planet breaks down an animated YouTube commercial for the antipsychotic medication Abilify, and provides commentary on the visual story second by second.

“A depressed suburban woman is tormented by her demonic yet adorable umbrella until pumped full of happy drugs by the pharmaceutical feeling engineers at Bristol-Myers Squibb,” reads the Pointless Planet synopsis.

“Some people had symptom improvement as early as 1 to 2 weeks,” states the Abilify commercial at second 32. Pointless Planet adds, ‘Other people embarked on a gruesome, multistate killing spree.”
