Remember it? No… not the product… THE advert of all time!
Limara body spray or shampoo or something, whatever it was, was totally eclipsed by the advertising which was pretty spectacular.
OK, I was a pubescent schoolboy at the time, and this was the early 1980s, but I swear just about every red blooded rock loving kid I knew was in love… with the cartoon character they used in the ad!
She had it all – and she emerged from a pond/waterfall, still wet, to a pounding rock song (‘Remember My Name’) and she walked purposefully (nay, sexually) to a distant castle where her obviously pretty lucky lover was apparently awaiting… phew… even thinking about it now sends me back to a time when spots ran amok!
Well, I can’t find the advert itself (oh please tell me you’ve got a copy somewhere…) but I did happen across the song…
Remember My Name, indeed – could hardly bloomin’ forget it! And here I am nearly a quarter of a century later still pining over a cartoon girl – talk about the ultimate fantasy chick!
