It´s really a great photo and a great ad. I got a big smile on my face. Nice post.
She looks unhappy with the product.. lol! I don’t use this product because of the minty taste.
I really don’t know why they thought folks would rush to buy the product with that ad. *lol*
I hope you can update your blog and for sure, we will be happy to read it. Thanks that you shared.I love this link up; it’s always so much fun, so thanks for hosting!
Amusingly and explainable bad for the good.
I love what you guys tend to be up too. This sort of clever work and exposure! Keep up the great works guys I’ve you guys to my personal blogroll.
A very vintage or we can call it retro Listerine. But I agree. I love it too. Especially in the morning.
I am certain my grandpa used that bottle of Listerine…no wait. Not “Polly’s” bottle. But that same flavour. I remember the smell now and it was pungent in the bottle. I had completely forgotten about that until now
Also, there’s a cough syrup in Canada called Buckley’s Mixture. Their tag line is “It tastes awful but it works”. And they’re right. But it always worked better than the candy-flavoured Robitussin, so the older I got, the more it was worth it. It was also a test of fortitude
My dad uses Listerine. I can’t stand the smell!
Oh, I agree with you about cough syrup. My folks always gave us “Silence is Golden” nasty stuff, but it worked!
Yes, Listerine tastes bad…but I don’t think it even smells good, so does it give you slightly better breath than whatever stink you worked up o your own…Poor Polly!
Poor Polly indeed.
She looks like a ’60s stewardess who is about ready to jump out the window of her next flight. lol
Good point. Kind of scary looking.
Pity on her. She spoiled her day!
Poor Dear, she sure did.
Thirty years ago I worked as a grocery store check-out clerk. Every week an elderly woman came in and purchased about a half dozen bottle of Listerine. That’s it. Her skin was yellow. I wonder if she thought, “It really tastes lousy.”
To this day I identify Listerine with that elderly woman and her sad, sad alcohol addiction.
Oh, bless her heart. I never would have put two and two together.
Wow, that’s extraordinarily bad. Also, she looks like a drunk clown and that scares me.
Oh, I totally missed the drunk clown until you pointed it out. I was so stuck on the whole, “Ya, this sucks, but it works” aspect of the thing. *lol*
