shyNEW YORK – Shy bladder sufferers want DirecTV to stop airing a television ad where a “painfully awkward” actor Rob Lowe says that he can’t urinate in public.

The satellite TV company suggests its critics should be able to take a joke.

Part of a campaign to encourage people to switch from cable, the ad features two Lowes: a handsome one in a slick suit who claims to be a DirecTV customer, and a goofy-looking Lowe wearing a fanny pack with his hair parted in the middle. “Painfully awkward” Lowe is a cable customer.

The ad touts DirecTV’s service, saying cable makes subscribers wait.

“Fact: I can’t go with other people in the room,” said awkward Lowe, standing at a urinal.  More

    I really didn’t know there was a Shy Bladder Sufferers Union Local 10-100

    People will find ANYTHING nowdays to bitch about, won’t they?

    It’s cute commercial, go bitch about something that counts, like World Hunger, or the cost of gas.

    on second thought No… keep bitching about stupid stuff… it’s makes identifying the stupid people really easy.

    As a serious shy bladder sufferer, I am distressed by the majority of comments that seem to reflect a misunderstanding about our condition. “If you gotta go, you’ll go” or “what’s the big deal, just use a stall” or, worse yet, “just lighten up, stop whining”. These are fallacies, for if we could, we would. For DirecTV to further insinuate we are “losers” is outrageous.
