Squatty Potty's Life After Kathy Griffin: Much Like Before

By jneff@adage.com (Jack Neff)


There’s life after Kathy Griffin for Squatty Potty, and it’s much like life beforehand. America’s leading defecation enhancement tool has returned to its original agency Harmon Brothers and prince spokesman, along with a gold-pooping dragon.

Squatty Potty is a step-like device that “is designed to help users assume the squatting position while using the bathroom, delivering fast, complete elimination with comfort and ease” (there is also now a child’s version). The new spot is the first from the brand since a three-week run with Griffin as spokeswoman in May was cut short by the uproar over her ill-fated appearance with a wax likeness of the severed head of Donald Trump. Harmon Brothers, the Provo, Utah-based agency that created the brand’s initial unicorn ad has signed on to do a series of new ads, says Bobby Edwards, CEO of St. George, Utah-based Squatty Potty. Bravery Films created the Griffin ad.

Asked about Griffin, Edwards says: “I feel bad about that, but I guess we’re going to move on.”
