Most amusing ad of the month


That's it, above.

"Nobel Prize winning technology."

"Regenerates skin at the molecular level."

If I didn't know better I'd say there might be an element of hype in that copy.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Most amusing ad of the month :


The Nobel was won for the discovery of Epidermal Growth Factor (by someone else, of course) in 1986.

EGF is used to treat some skin conditions, like rosacea, I think with some success; as usual, there's no reason whatsoever to suppose that rubbing it on your dead outer skin cells will do anything to make you look better.

But since it can unlimit the growth of skin cancer cells, it's not out of the question that it could change your appearance in SOME way!

(Don't worry, though - the EGF in the cream has probably all broken down within days of its manufacture, anyway.)

Yeah, but doesn't aspirin actually come into contact with living tissue, when taken orally?

Oh wait, you were joking.

...nevermind! :-)

Remember: Aspirin is nobel-prize winning technology as well.
