Angry Entresto Heart Failure Drug is WORST commercial on TV

It is not lightly I say that this Entresto Heart Failure drug was the worst commercial on television today.


It has literally changed my morning viewing habits. CBS News (Channel 2 in NYC) was my go-to morning and weekend news station but after Entresto commercials started playing earlier this year I had to move to ABC (Channel 7.) If I see Entresto on channel 7 (which is rare) I change to the local Fox station, channel 5 in New York, which used to be my favorite years ago but I left them because of all their bullshit "news" on music, fashion, and other non-news worthy subjects.

I posted this on Twitter a while back and got some likes. A search of the hastag #Entresto finds a number of people who feel the same way and even a doctor who doesn't want to prescribe it because of the damn commercial.



I know... First world problems.

I figured you'd be stroking it since there's a basset hound in it.

I know, even despite the hound. It's that bad.

The whole thing. No one has a guaranteed tomorrow, heart failure or not. And the last scene, the old guy singing to the baby- totally disturbs me.

I hate all those commercials. By the time they get to the side effects, I can't see anyone running to the doctor and saying hey, put me on those!

They spend 55 seconds of a 60 second spot explaining how the medicine is going to give you the shits on top of everything else
