In love with Palmolive Liquid

Jan Miner (October 15, 1917, Boston, Massachusetts – February 15, 2004, Bethel, Connecticut) was an American actress who became an icon to TV viewers as Madge, the wisecracking manicurist in commercials for Palmolive Dishwashing Detergent. Miner played Madge for 27 years, and made the commercials in French, German, Danish and Italian.

The Colgate-Palmolive Company is a U.S. diversified multinational corporation focused on the production, distribution and provision of household, health care and personal products, such as soaps, detergents, and oral hygiene products (including toothpaste and toothbrushes).

Cleaning up McDonald’s

In response to the backlash against McDonald’s, the firm has sought to include some healthy choices in its menu and has introduced a new slogan to its recruitment posters: “Not bad for a McJob”. (The word McJob, first attested in the mid-1980s and later popularized by Canadian novelist Douglas Coupland in his book Generation X, has become a buzz word for low paid, unskilled work with few prospects or benefits and little security). McDonald’s disputes the idea that its restaurant jobs have no prospects, noting that its CEO, Jim Skinner, started working at the company as a regular restaurant employee, and that 20 of its top 50 managers began work as regular crew members.

Washed up with Coloreria

Laundry detergent, or washing powder, is a substance which is a type of detergent that is added when one is washing laundry to help get the laundry cleaner. It is often colloquially called laundry soap or simply detergent or soap and it helps wash the fabric in a manner rather analogous to the way soap helps wash hands, other parts of the body, or other things cleaner than washing with water alone.

Super Hero fights for Super Tide

Tide is the name of a popular laundry detergent on the market in the United States, Canada and other countries like Morocco. It is manufactured by Procter & Gamble. First introduced in test markets in 1946 with national distribution reached in 1949, Tide was touted as “America’s Washday Favorite.” It quickly gained dominance in the detergent market, dwarfing the sales of other P&G products, such as Ivory Snow, as well as the competition from Rinso. The latter two were soap products. Originally, Tide was a white powdered solid, but the brand line was later expanded to include a liquid form, an orange-tinted clear fluid; today, liquid Tide is generally a darkish blue color.

Skip Unilever’s Ketchup Time

Unilever is an Anglo-Dutch company that owns many of the world’s consumer product brands in foods, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. Unilever employs more than 206,000 people and had a worldwide revenue of €39,67 billion (just over US$50 billion) in 2005.

Bullet time (or bullet-time) is a computer-enhanced variation of slow-motion special effects used in some recent films and computer games. It is characterized both by its extreme permutation of time (slow enough to show normally imperceptible and un-filmable events, such as flying bullets) and by the ability of the camera angle–the audience’s point-of-view–to move around the scene at a normal speed while events are slowed.
