All that Yaz ~ Bad Product Names

All that Yaz

Yaz


Okay, so it sounds similar to "Yes" and is only 3 letters long, but that's all the positives there are to this name. It's got a terrible commerical too, with people singing a cover of "We're Not Gonna Take It", what were they thinking? That's gotta backfire... It also sounds too flashy ("razzle-dazzle") for a freakin' birth control pill.

Never heard of it too. But if they will have a good advertisement and will market their product well, I guess the name would be OK.

Personally I do not even understand why they advertise birth control pills. I am not going to just decide I need them and then go to my doctor and ask for that specific name.

Life Insurance Training said...

Their commercials are so irritating. Women wandering around at a nightclub while one, who happens to be a doctor, gives a fully FDA approved rundown of the possible side effects. She must be a blast when she's drunk.

Steve said...

There was a pop star in the UK called Yaz in the 90s. Weirdly, as one of the other comments suggested, she resembled a hyper motivated fitness instructor with bad hair.
