A long-lost brand, and singularly odd one. Like discovering Spicy Cajun Visine Hot Sauce lurking in the product's history.
Is this supposed to provide protection against smoker’s breath? Because that would make some kind of sense. . . I guess. . .
Seems like the same kind of twisted brain that conjured up menthol cigarettes.
When it burns your lungs, that’s how you know it’s working!
For a minute I thought it was Listerine that made the “feminine odor” ad from the fifties, but that was Lysol. What a relief. Cuz I’m thinkin “Honey, why does the mouthwash taste so funny?”
man, Spicy Cajun Visine Hot Sauce would be really rough if used for either one…..
you can see how it gets rid of dandruff too.
This still happens. In India there is a company that makes chewing tobacco and mouthwash. They were recently caught up in a controversy in Australia where they had advertising material at Australian Cricket matches that were broadcast in both Australia and India, although there is a ban on advertising tobacco products on Australian TV. Not many Australians noticed because the signs were in Hindi, however the company claims that they were advertising the mouthwash. It’s a bit like if Marlboro also sold chewing gum and had ads everywhere saying “Celebrity X enjoys Marlboro!”.
Even the BBC admitted that they weren’t sure what was going on with that one.
i knew a cute charming mongolian girl who used minty eye drops. that freaked me the hell out.
i tried them (the drops). they do in fact sting. but after the sting, it does have a somewhat refreshing feeling too.
A lot of my friends love sricha. I do too. However, when they say it makes everything better, I usually reply with “except contact lens solution”.
