Ads :: Cleaning Off The Top Layer


CopyWith teeth this white, nothing will stop you from showing off your smile.

I generally enjoy my humour the same way I like my Milky Ways.
Dark (and melty).

Canvas advertising in South Africa has some stunning one-off print ads 
using ridiculously high quality photography and pithy visual jokes.

This set for Love Your Smile teeth whitening is beautiful in the most morbid way possible.
I'm unclear as to whether or not Ad Standards Canada would allow bus stop posters near a Safeway avec chopped-off-finger action, but the  edge would be enough to have me seriously
considering a New Year's tooth whitening using their products.

America's Golden Girl Turns 90

Betty White for Richard Hudnut hair products (circa 1959).

Betty White is the consummate female comedian in my opinion:
Ti
meless, beautiful, shameless, sexy & completely unafraid to make fun of herself.

In addition, she's never hesitated to become the spokeswoman for every and any product she could lend her visage & reputation to (including Tyco Toys, Q-Tip, Snickers and more).  In my opinion, she's the queen of celebrity promotions (somehow spanning 5 decades without ruining her image or celebrity pull). 



America's most trusted celebrity, the ever stunning Betty White turned 90 on January 17th.
