Editor's Pick

Visiting your significant other’s family for the first time is always a little uncomfortable, even if shouldn’t lead to “Get Out”-level terror. But such visits always bring a more mundane fear—what if something goes wrong with the toilet?

Scott Bath and VaynerMedia lean into toilet terror with a three-minute short film that shows the downside of leaving your Scott 1000 toilet paper (“made with clog-free technology”!) in the trunk of the car while visiting your prospective in-laws.

The results are horrific—even if the woman’s reaction at the end is perhaps a bit excessive.


Director Chioke Nassor of Even/Odd, who’s directed episodes of shows including “Black-ish,” “Superstore” and “High Maintenance,” as well as brand projects for Kate Spade and the ACLU, nicely follows horror conventions here—with well-placed moments of levity.

“We know clogging your own toilet is frustrating in itself, not to mention the added anxiety when it happens in public,” said Ken Champa, U.S. senior marketing director household care and Scott Bath at Kimberly-Clark. “To help prevent your bathroom from turning into a real-life horror movie, make sure you have plenty of Scott 1000 which is trusted in flushability and value.”
