As regular readers of B&T would know, we like to cover the marketing campaigns of US lavatory deodoriser PooPourri for no other reason than they’re bloody hilarious.
So imagine our joy when not only did the whiff neutraliser unveil its Christmas campaign for the year (although we’re not sure too many would appreciate PooPourri under the tree), it did it featuring YouTube sensation JP Sears joining stalwart Bethany Woodruff atop the latrine.

“Literally everyone on your Christmas list can use Poo-Pourri every day—sometimes twice a day. And as more and more holiday shopping happens online, digital is the ideal place to catch them in the middle of the burdensome act.”
