is it the jingle or the visuals that you dig...? A couple o years ago I was watching the star wars holiday special and was blown away by how sexy the stocking ads were. Obviously at the time when I first saw the special I wasn't clued into that area of interest...

a) the jingles are amazing. The Dici one goes a long way to explaining my Gainsbourg fixation (amongst other possible fixations) to myself.

b) the visuals are amazing. They don't really have bra and panty ads on TV anymore, let alone bra and panty ads embued with some weird psuedo-empowerment message...

c) One of my favourite things about the circulating Star Wars Holiday Special bootlegs are the period commercials throughout. Again, I would buy a box set full of seventies commercials - quotidian ones, prize-winning ones, I don't care! The more Canadian they are the better.

I'm not ashamed to admit that the Dici commercial instantly took me back to a time of gentler arousals. I sang the final refrain and wondered if I was ever so innocent. I thank you through tears, Jesse.
