Remember the classics – On Top!

It’s time for regular feature – Remember the classics. The good old days (well apart from the evil apartheid thing), when men were men, and pansy was just the name of a flower (this might be homophobic). Now, I think the first ad that really made an impression on me was the “Cremora ad” … “It’s not inside its oooooon TOP!”. It perplexes me. Why would the coffee be inside the fridge? What was he thinking? Seriously. And, the dude was a bit weird, all that “It’s oooon Top” business. Kinda lucky to be married at all IMHO. Especially wearing that dressing gown thing.

On the other hand, the Black Cat Peanut Butter dude was awesome. “Black belt, huh?” – “uh uh, Black Cut”. That’s right, bitches. Eat your chunky peanut butter and beat up muggers. The dude must be in his 40’s now. Probably got a bit of midlife spread. Just saying. Mmm, I feel like a peanut butter sandwich. Maybe add a little bit of honey or syrup. Perfect for breakfast. Makes a change from my usual All Bran Flakes. Or Frosties. Tony the Tiger notwithstanding. Best soccer I’ve ever seen a Tiger play. Also, the first time I’ve seen a tiger stand on his hind legs. Curious, also, since we don’t get tigers in Africa. Tigers are from Asia. I think in fact that Tony was a Siberian tiger (which weigh up to 306kg). Would be unfair really, to try and tackle him. Also, the pitch was probably a bit smelly when Tony was playing…

“To identify his territory, the male marks trees by spraying of urine and anal gland secretions, as well as marking trails with scat. Males show a grimacing face, called the Flehmen response, when identifying a female’s reproductive condition by sniffing their urine markings.”

    To clarify,

    Cremora is not coffee, its coffee creamer.
    As in, same use as milk.
    Hence looking in the fridge.

    ok ok, cremora should be kept inside the fridge. but then the point is, what was it doing ON TOP. A mystery. that’s what this pictures is all about.
