6 Days Early? Really, what’s the difference?

I know that I should be like, the perfect audience for this commercial because I should agree that one day is SO MUCH TIME… but…

…is it just me or does the new First Response Pregnancy Test commercial remind anyone else of the 7-Minute Abs clip from There’s Something About Mary? “No one gets a good ab workout in six minutes!!”

I can’t find the FR commercial, but this is the gist: “New! FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test can now detect the pregnancy hormone, hCG, 6 days before your missed period.  Patent pending, Polymeric Amplification Technology (PAT) allows only FIRST RESPONSE® to detect the pregnancy hormone at lower levels than ever before. It is the ONLY pregnancy test that detects the pregnancy hormone 6 days before the day of the missed period, which is one day sooner than any other test on the market.” (Taken from the First Response website)

It just sounds like such a silly selling point to me. If you’re pregnant, you’re pregnant, and you’ll know when you don’t get your damn period. Eh? Why pay more money? Hell, I stock up on Dollar Store tests, and I still get a negative response whether I use those or the $12 tests each month. Booo.
