The Ballad of a Gentle Laxative

These 1987 TV ads for Doxidan laxative, featuring the 'Doxidan Cowboy,' seem to inspire both love and hate. A lot of people on YouTube remember them fondly, but in newspapers from the time they were often cited as being among the most annoying commercials on TV.

The singer was Skeeter Starke. He has a YouTube channel.

I'd like to hear something like that for Ex-Lax.

OMG. Thank you for posting this! I TOTALLY remember that Doxidan commercial, and I thought it was Kinky Friedman! Glad to know the truth. 😜

Now I know where John Oliver got his idea about his catheter cowboy.
