Pfizer in Major Marketing Push to End Pandemic

Uploaded: Apr 1, 2021
Fauci: “This is a game changer”

US-based drug maker Pfizer announced today that it has successfully test-marketed its covid vaccine in a unique package with the company’s Erectile Dysfunction pill Viagra. Emergency FDA approval is anticipated shortly.

“We know that there’s been vaccine resistance among older men, especially in some parts of the country,” said CEO Albert Bourla. “We were stuck for how to address that - running some ideas up the flagpole, and this one popped-out. The Venn diagrams of potential customers and vaccine resistors overlap almost perfectly.”

The company chose Utah, Nebraska and Arkansas to test its concept. “We were particularly gratified by the reception in the Beehive State,” continued Bourla. “The governor’s office called it a win/win for public health, under the state's motto ‘Go forth and multiply.’”

Nebraskans were similarly upbeat: “It’s been a long year here, and there just ain’t that much to do,” said one Cornhusker.

The CDC’s response has been upbeat. “We hope that other vaccine makers will get creative and market their own package deals. We favor stiff competition, but Pfizer’s clearly got out ahead. I mean, what’s J&J got to offer – Tylenol?”

Pfizer will conduct its campaign under the title “Operation Hard Immunity.”

America’s epidemiologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, expressed optimism. “This is big. It being April First, we’d be Foolish to think the pandemic won’t peter-out in the second quarter.”
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

Great news on the same day the Oakland A's announce they plan to out spend the Mets and every other team on signing all-stars, with Billy Beanne saying, "screw analytics, and money ball b.s., we are finally going to start throwing money at players".
