A Screme Come True

Does he or doesn't he? My guess is that he doesn't...

-He doesn't have a mirror.

-He doesn't have a makeup man. Because he's clearly an escapee from the sort of Z movie where you do your own special effects and pack a lunch.

-And he doesn't want to wait until Halloween to try out that great mask and wig he got from the drugstore.


-He does seem to find the Screme box rather enchanting. Well, the crown is colorful. And the joke name - well, that's a riot, too. Although it really ought to read Mr. Scairol.

-He does look like he has a few things on his mind. If only he knew what they were!

-And he does have a small red "Werewolverine" head escaping that oddly sculpted-looking wig of his. An inflamed pimple masquerading as Elvira, perhaps. What does she want?

(Rhetorical question - I don't really want to know.)

Many thanks to Weirdomatic for this one. This looks like a parody ad from a comic book, probably 1960s or early 70s vintage. If you have a better idea than I do, do tell in the comments.

What does it say about me that I find this ad a lot more interesting than some of those "real" ads...?

Hey - it has that coveted Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
