One Of The Stupidest Cancer Drug Commercials Ever

There appears to be lots of commercials for medications to treat cancer and currently, there is one for a drug called Verzenio.   The commercial says that Verzenio is for POST MENOPAUSAL women with metastatic breast cancer with certain receptors.  At about 40 seconds into the commercial, it begins with warnings about what the drug might cause.

Then it enters into stupidity.  The commercial actually says to tell your doctor if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or plan to become pregnant.  WHAT?!?  Does whomever wrote the commercial know what post menopausal means?  I actually did a rewind 5 times to make sure I heard the commercial first say that the drug is for post menopausal women.
