The Rising Fame of Bidets
Bidets are ubiquitous across the world in most major countries. Bathrooms in Japan, most famously, are known for their high-tech doo-dads that clean your butt every which way from Sunday. Europeans value bidets enough to make them their own separate contraption and in India, the booty-hose allows users to reach the abyss of their bums to clean their crap from any angle. And then there’s America. Land of the free, home of the … toilet paper. It seems that toilet paper has developed a chokehold on the American butt, pocket and bathroom. But there seems to be a slow and steady movement of people advocating for bidets. And those people happen to be some of the most influential people in the world. Celebrities.
Tiffany Haddish, arguably America’s newest sweetheart, teamed up with Groupon for their most recent ads. This was all inspired by her experience with a bidet she purchased from Groupon.
“When you go into the bathrooms in Japan, they have bidets like right there... they have them in the toilet,” she recalled. “And so you push the button and it rinses your butt, like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing.’ I didn’t even know exactly how to use it, but I figured it out...Then I happened to be on Groupon and decided to see if they had bidets — and boom, they had them.”
Haddish isn’t the only celeb who has raved about bidets. In a recent interview on Conan, Jake Gyllenhaal struddered through is description of an “extraordinary” bidet that he purchased for a good friend of his.
Most recently, the Sklar Brothers have joined the bidet movement. While promoting their recent film project “Poop Talks” which features comedians talking about poop, Randy and Jason question and challenge the taboo nature of pooping by just... talking about it. (Which is one of TUSHY’s biggest missions) In the a recent interview with UPROXX, they pose the question, “why has the bidet been suppressed in this country.” Read their interview below:
Obviously, we at TUSHY hole-heartedly agree. It’s clearly time that the US starts to get with the program and we certainly think celebs are the ones to start leading the way for the rest of the country. For those of us who can’t afford those expensive, fancy bidets, there’s TUSHY. TUSHY provides a sleek, simple and affordable alternative to the billion-function toilet seats that cost thousands of dollars and make you an omelette while you poop. Everyone deserves the luxury of a super clean butt. Famous or not.
“Poop Talks’ is out now in select theaters and available on streaming services. Check out the trailer:
