VIDEO: Animals celebrate Singles Day in hilarious Durex commercial
Nov. 11, or 11/11, was dubbed Singles Day in China, a holiday to celebrate (or bemoan) singledom. Condom company Durex created a commercial that pokes fun at the holiday, reminding us that “Just because you’re single … doesn’t mean you aren’t sexy.” The video shows that animals can be single and still have a sexy, good time. It’s not exactly cute and fuzzy, but it is very funny.Singles Day earned its moniker from the four ones in 11/11. Though it was initially a day meant for single friends to hang out together and go on blind dates, the day has since become something like Cyber Monday, in which online retailers like the giant Taobao.com offer special deals. This year, the e-tailer sold more than $100 million worth of goods in less than one hour, according to Tech in Asia.
