Top Ten Ads You May Not Have Heard


(From Jan)

#10….An ad for handkerchiefs: You can make our handkerchiefs dance, all you have to do it put a little boogy in them.

#9…Dog Obedience School: We can teach your dog to do math. Ask him what 2 minus 2 is, he’ll say nothing. See how easy that is!

#8…Thuntack ad: Our tacks are so strong that the tough football players use them to hold their sweat socks up.

#7…Advertising sure brings quick results – last week I advertised for a night watchman – the same night by safe was robbed.

#6…Cors put  slogan “Turn it Loose” into Spanish, where it was read as “Suffer from Diarrhea.”

#5…Scandinavian vacuum manufacturer Electrolux used the following in an American campaign: “Nothing Sucks like an Electrolux.”

#4…Clairol introdused the “Mist Stick,” a curling iron, into Germany only to find out that “mist” is slang for manure. Not too many people had use for the “Manure Stick.”

#3: Sign on a car dealer lot: “Come on in and buy your new car for us and push it home; we can’t afford the gas to put in it.”

#2: Ad for a fresh fruit market:  Our fruits are so fresh they will pinch your butt as you walk by. I saw older women standing in line at that market.

#1: Sign in an Apothecary: Come in and we will telly ou what newly weds buy vaseline for. I went in, figure I already knew, but was curious, so I asked anyway. They told me newly weds buy it for the same as I do – $1.29 a jar!
