Hotels.com partner up with toilet spray brand Poo-pourri to help you through your ‘first poo with boo’
By Caitlin Marsh on Thursday, October 3, 2019
The first overnight getaway with your significant other is an exciting milestone in most relationships, but there is one big problem… what do you do when you need to poo?
Fear not! Hotels.com and toilet spray brand Poo-pourri have teamed up to help you through this important rite of passage.
In this video titled “#FirstPooWithBoo”, the brands’ spokescharacters, Captain Obvious and Bethany, become broadcasters who deliver a play-by-play account as a new couple navigate the awkward situation of their first No.2 on an overnight trip.
Hotels.com conducted a survey that found 37% of people experience anxiety about doing a number two during a first trip with someone they are dating, while 73% of those will go to extreme measure to ensure they make their “deposit” while away from the significant other.
As part of the campaign, the companies also created a “How-To” list of moves and techniques you can use during your trip in the absence of Poo-Pourri. The companies also created a co-branded package that includes Poo-Pourri’s bestselling spray Original Citrus, which will be given to the first 500 customers who book on hotels.com/firstpoowithboo. After that, shoppers can purchase limited edition boxes for $9.95.
