« A Great Book I'm Reading... | Main | Fighting New Competition »

Andrew Cavanagh

I remember reading this story many years ago...thank you so much for reminding me.

The story reminds me of a few of those classic TV ads of the 60s and 70s that used dramatization so well (there's a link to a couple of those ads in my signature.)

Remember what they did to all those poor Timex watches.

And did you get the Mortein personal spray ad in the US where they put live mosquitoes on people's arms?

Great dramatization.

Great post Ryan.

Kindest regards,
Andrew Cavanagh

Thank you from your compliments, Andrew. Glad you liked the post.

I actually don't know about Timex watches or Mortein spray. They sound like interesting case studies though.
