THE makers of Imodium have released a heartwarming Christmas advert featuring a monster with chronic diarrhoea.
The big-budget advert involves a young boy, Jack, who wakes in the night to discover a large troll-like creature shitting violently in his cupboard.
The pair embark on a delightful festive adventure, interrupted only by the monster running off with stomach cramps to void his bowels of liquid faeces.
A spokesman said: “We wanted to capture the magic of Christmas, but also the terror of knowing you might cack yourself because you’ve had 11 mince pies.
“After the initial shock meeting, Jack and his new friend sneak outside and build a snowman, with the monster frequently disappearing behind the garden shed with a roll of toilet paper.
“We then discover he can fly and they soar through the wintry sky to Santa’s workshop at the North Pole, where the monster manages to find a tiny elf toilet just before he shits himself.
“Santa urges Jack to pick a toy, but instead he chooses a pack of Imodium for the monster. It’s a wonderful story about friendship, imagination and recovering from the raging trots.
“The next day Jack wakes up and is sad to think it was just a dream, but then there’s a loud farty squelch from under the bed.”
