Don't forget to floss!

This is a clever ad campaign from Colgate to sell dental floss.

Gross, right? Who wants food stuck in their teeth? I'm also wondering why it's all the men who are pictured with food in their teeth. But, here's what you might've missed:
  • In the first picture, the arm around the guy doesn't belong to the girl
  • In the second picture, there's an extra finger on the women's hand
  • In the third picture, the guy is missing an ear
Bottom line, people will notice little else if you have food stuck in your teeth.

It's a cute ad, but really it's telling me to look at my teeth after every meal, when it's actually more important to floss every night. So Colgate, nice try, but get to working on a new one.

I wonder if people notice that they're not noticing -- otherwise, not so effective, right?

The weirdest toothpaste ad, however, is the Crest one that goes: "He could be the father of your children, but first you have to get him to say hello." BUY CREST!

Weird fucking shit. On a side note.
