Twisted Impressions #15: Group Showers


They didn't really just say "put our heads together" did they? Perhaps not the best word choice for a group shower ad.

Even forgetting the verbiage, this ad gives me the creeps. Nothing against getting naked in a locker room - uncomfortable as it may be.  But these young fellas are having way too much fun in their skivvies - and there's just something wrong with the whole vibe I'm getting here.

The full color version is even worse....

  2. And if they stand in a circle, they can scrub each other's backs, saving time, too...

  3. Why do I believe Jerry Sandusky had something to do with the design of these showers? I always wondered why some guys were so happy to go dong to dong when they hit the gym showers... now I guess I know.

  4. This design seems to be encouraging youth to face each other naked.Water conservation aside.I for one did not want my classmates on display RIGHT IN FRONT of me.A large Rectangular shower area with spaced shower heads allowed one to at least face away from others if needed.For some students,mandatory showers were traumatic enough depending on the amount of obnoxious jerks in gym class.

      They were still there when I went to basic in 1986. Talk about a shock.

  8. When Glee is finally retired, this will be NBC's replacement performance-sitcom.

  9. my high school had these in the back of the locker room separate from the lockers. it was a huge shower room there were about 6 of these things spread out in the middle of the room. never used them though, by the time I went to school there they were obsolete and group showering was phased out. they just used the room for storage, but you could still see them in there. always wanted to run in there and see if they still worked. it was dark in there too, it was like stumbling upon a relic of seasons past. it's been about 10 years since those days and the school has had some add ons and redesigns since then and to this day I still wonder if they're still there.
