Animated Characters in Prescription Drug Advertising

"Welcome to the Cockeyed.com roundup of prescription drugs which use CG animated characters in their advertising.... Even worse than Mr. Mucus and Granger, Digger the gremlin is the animated face of Lamisil. Digger represents a nail infection. In real life, a nail infection probably doesn't hurt, but in the commercials, this guy bends a toenail back like he is opening the hood of a Chevy and jumps right in. It is horrifying. An uncut version of this commercial features his other exploits, including mass-murder and cannibalism. A doctor can help you get Digger out of your toenail, but he will never be able to get him out of your nightmares."
