Doesn’t this ad make you want to rush and buy Listerine?
She looks so happy to use the product.
“I hate it but I love it” There is a ringing endorsement!
Truth in advertising?


 Ad found at: eBaum”s World




  1. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    It´s really a great photo and a great ad. I got a big smile on my face. Nice post.

  3. Heidi19 says:

    She looks unhappy with the product.. lol! I don’t use this product because of the minty taste.

    Amusingly and explainable bad for the good.

  6. 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.

  8. 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 :D

      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!

  9. 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!

    She looks like a ’60s stewardess who is about ready to jump out the window of her next flight. lol

  11. 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.

  12. Wow, that’s extraordinarily bad. Also, she looks like a drunk clown and that scares me.

    • Bernie says:

      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*
