The Man and I have been watching ads for this beauty cream for the last few days and laughing each time they try to tell us how good it is. When it comes to advertising we are cynical people who will never be sucked in by any products dubious claims of instant youth, but I find it hard to believe anyone would ever buy this story.
I couldn’t believe it was a real product the first few times I saw it and then I wondered if anyone has ever bought it. If so, did they really listen to the ad?!
This is not the same as the commercial we have been watching, ours has had far less reference to the magic ingredient, but I liked the way this one is out and proud in explaining that snail gel is the thing that will give you beautiful skin.
In this ad all of the users are busy smearing on the cream out in the garden. I wondered if they could hear the crying all of the other bereaved snails hiding in the plants? Perhaps they were just squeezing out another hapless snail to fill the jar afresh for each shot….
As always, if there is someone out there who has used this cream and their facial shell has miraculously healed, just as the shell on the snail in the ad did, please let me know. Until then I will assume it works as well as snail slime normally does when I squish one of the little buggers who is eating my veggies. They are still just as busted the next morning, even when they have spent the night lying in a puddle of that miraculous slime.
