How did I lose the weight? Why, Ayds.

In the script we have several Phudie Mart commercials which make fun of local grocery commercials with the poorly lit product shots and the loud announcer who boldly shouts the name of the product and how much it costs. We had a flashback which includes more 80’s products like Ecto-Cooler, and I threw out “Ayds” but nobody had heard of it.

Hello, welcome back to the new Schadenfreude site, we’re pretty excited to deliver the content. This is only my second post on the site as we just spent a week and a half in retreat writing our next screenplay, The Phudie Mart. Writing it and being back in Chicago for a week and a half has been one of the best times I’ve ever had. I’ve got lots of pictures, analysis, and insight into how five people were able to write 83 pages in 9 days. But first I wanted to see whoever’s heard of the 1980’s Diet aid, Ayds.

It’s a diet aid that came out like a couple months before Rock Hudson invented the disease of the same name.

I also found the commercial for it on youtube.
