mm329: Blast from the past No. 6

MUDGE’s Musings

There’s most read, and then there’s favorite. This is a post which yr (justifiably) humble svt is, regrettably, but not regretfully, not at all humble about.


Blast from the Past!

A post we really, really loved to write, and read, and re-read…

From our very earliest days, originally posted July 4, 2007.

mm050: Sublime to…

So, I’m casually surfing (what else?), end up at one of my favorite sites, Lifehacker, blogroll2_thumband I find one of the most oddly interestingly pieces of on=line advertising I’ve ever encountered.

I don’t do advertising here, mainly because there aren’t enough of you visiting, and most of you are friends and family for whom I have absolutely no desire to monetize the experience, but, as the cliché expresses, the exception proves the rule. By the way, in case you are curious, I have absolutely no commercial arrangement with anyone connected with advertising in general, or this product specifically.

So, I clicked the intriguing looking ad, which shows a couple of nude female posteriors with smiley faces overlaid on them.


You’ve just got to check this out:

On a visit to Japan seven years ago, I encountered a most accomplished toilet in my son’s townhouse, and the wizards at Toto (who do good work — when we upgraded our two baths, we specified Toto toilets) have apparently decided that U.S. people have evolved sufficiently to be ready for a similarly accomplished commode, actually seat cover, as you now know if you did go ahead and click the link.

And this is amazing and very, very slick advertising, also. The cable infomercial will arrive I’m sure (if it hasn’t already — I haven’t encountered it), but this state of the art web advertising certainly grabbed this blogger right in the ___________ .

I’m certain that I can’t afford one, much less two, but my God, I wish I could!

Thanks for indulging me.

It’s it for now. Thanks,
