As longtime B&T readers would know, we’re monster fans of the Poo-Pourri ads, those delightfully funny spots for the toilet deodoriser that targets even the most odorous of stools. And, hasn’t poo hogged the headlines this week?
In fact, Poo-Pourri’s Christmas ad from 2014 – which you can check out here – remains one of the most magnificent pieces of copywriting in advertising history.

Enter the brand’s latest work fronted by Queer Eye’s resident uber camp hairdresser, Jonathon Van Ness, who said of his association with the toilet freshener: “I’ve dealt with poo shame, and anywhere we can remove stigma and shame, I want to be here for it.”
