Ding-dong, Avon calling! And you know what the Avon Lady has for you today?
Only the most delicious toothpaste you have ever had in your entire life. Avon Dental Cream!
Please – come back and sit down. Really, Dental Cream is exactly what you wanted. You just didn’t know you did. Look how happy the model in the ad looks. Well – all right, she looks moderately pleased.
Oh all right, that is one glazed smile she is putting on for the camera. But you can say this: she doesn’t hate the Avon Dental Cream.
What’s that? You say you don’t tend to think about toothpaste as a delectable taste treat? Well, yes, I realize that this is the 1950s, and we’re not going to be seeing too many flavors in toothpaste for awhile. But this is a step towards that exciting future when we will be brushing our teeth with bursts of cinnamon, or blue raspberry gel. Or chocolate! Or whiskey. Tee hee, that could be interesting!
Or – what? Goodness gracious, I can’t imagine what makes you think anyone would make toothpaste that tastes like bacon.
