IVORY strikes again  
Ivory soap, 1931

I love everything about this ad: the lusty greeting, the vibrant artwork, the hunk in the tub, the over-the-top copy - everything.

And we won't ask silly questions about a bathtub at sea.

Very nice,
I like my hunks with a little more hair on their legs.

True, but I'd stroll up his gangplank anytime.

Clearly he is inviting the guy on the other boat to come join him in the Ivory suds. When did Ivory stop with the manlove? These days I only hear about how it's 99.44% pure. (Which led someone I knew to ask "What's the rest, sewer sludge?")

Half way to a Cialis ad. Ahead of its time in more ways than one.

I love the obvious influence of Japanese prints.

I wish more companies sold soap and towels with the promise of naked manly funtimes.
