163: Gay Ad - Clorox parody

“A Mad Look at the Clorox Commercial”
from “Mad Magazine” December 1978

Again, a pastiche of a popular ad strategy. Again, the momsers at “Mad Magazine” think a homosexual is a transvestite. Note the wrist is so limp as to be almost atrophied. “Divine. . . silly . . .yummy”? . . .ho-hum. The face looks awfully familiar, from some camp American supporting actor, but I know it’s not Edward Everett Horton. Or it may be the guy from the “Don’t squeeze the Charmin” ads.
