YOU’LL WONDER WHERE THE YELLOW WENT …

Do YOU wonder where the yellow went? Or who wrote the book of love?


Sometimes, advertising really sticks with you. This one sure has. Pepsodent. Is that toothpaste still around? What was irium? I.M.P.?

And where did the yellow go? I wonder, wonder who wrote the book of love? Did he steal all the yellow?

  1. Whoever wrote the “Book of Love” was playing a joke on all of us.

  2. So was the Colgate “Ring of Confidence” radioactive too?

  3. To answer a question, Pepsodent is still around but only offered in some bulk bargain retailers like “Dollar Stores” etc. My Aunt & Uncle used it and I loved the wintergreen flavor so, when I visited them in Buffalo NY, I looked forward to using Pepsodent. My Parents would never buy it, they were Colgate folks.

  4. Nice. I wonder where all the cool jingles went but it might be because I don’t want TV. All I hear on Youtube streaming music is “I have Type 2 Diabetes” and “Ask your doctor if Strichnine is right for you.”

  5. I think irium was similar to radium so that you’d have a glowing smile 😉

    • Now there’s a scary concept! It turns out — I looked it up — it’s Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) — a foaming agent naturally derived from coconut and/or palm kernel oil. It has never been used in ANYTHING except Pepsodent. if you google it, you get all things Pepsodent.

      Irium. At least it isn’t a radium derivative. I suppose we needs be grateful.

      • I did Google Pepsodent and found out far more than I cared to know 😉 Pretty much their advertisers made up a fancy word that was totally meaningless. When asked, they said they meant SLS, but nobody else in the Universe called it Irium. But I like my hypothesis better, a bit of radioactivity for the glowing smile, at least until your hair and teeth fall out.
