"Flick your Bic"

I was a bit surprised it took as long as six minutes after today's opening post till reader Joe Peach sent me a link to the video above, one of the classic commercials of all time.

It will undoubtedly be the first time most of my readers will have ever heard of the "Flick my Bic" meme, which reigned supreme in the late 70s when the great majority of my readers weren't alive or even rumors.

Wrote Joe from his secure, undisclosed location in Pennsylvania, "LOL, 'member this?"

Sure do.

Caption from YouTube: "This was the first of several risqué Bic Butane Lighter commercials which ran through the late 1970s. I love how the pimp calls for his chick with a flick of his bic!"

One of my dream meetups that'll prolly never happen: Peachie and Flautist with a running camera.

"Epic" would be a major understatement.

Clever yes, but I don't like the pimp. Racist image, made me wince.

Well Joe it just might be in the stars, right Flautist?
