CHRISTIAN SLATER IS A WALKING TALKING GERM

SLATS is slated to voice the part of a germ in an animated UK TV spot for Unilever's white bleach cleaning product Domestos. Let’s take a look at the germ history of New York native Kuffs:

• bit a man on the stomach.
• carried a dirty smelly street gun.
• big open gash on head from wife-tossed glass.
• touched an NYC street girl’s buttocks (allegedly).
• prison cells + holding cells = germ cells.

Unilever says Demestos “can wipe out hidden enemies lurking in toilets and drains (no mention of alleyways).”

If this were my idea, I’d pitch hard for Pee Wee Herman and maybe Nick Nolte to voice subsequent germs.

STUPID EXAMPLE #1


AT RIGHT IS AN AD I did back in the go-go 90s for an aloe wrap weight loss treatment from a chichi spa. The owner told me upfront the treatment didn’t work; you simply lost water weight. Inspired by that juicy, dangling, reason-to-buy carrot, I embarked on an afternoon expedition that ended with the enticing question you see. Click the image to read the equally brilliant hard sell.

SUNDAY-GO-TO-MEETING SUIT


THAT'S ME. Taken Sunday at the Billy Graham Crusade. Look at that look of unmitigated bliss. Billy is a born ad guy for God.
