Big Game Spot “ENVY” is a commercial made on behalf of those living with chronic pain and struggling with Opioid-Induced Constipation (OIC). It is centered on a middle-aged man who seems to envy all humans (and not only emoticon smile ) that don’t have to deal with constipation.
The voice in the background speaks about OIC and advises those in need to see a doctor and ask about prescription treatment options.
