Well, it's a new month and the folks over at Theme Thursday have chosen "white" for the month of June. The concept behind Theme Thursday is to help give bloggers a little boot to their creative behinds once a week and hopefully prompt them into writing a post about the week's theme. For the last little while they've been using colours at the outset of each month.
When I saw this month's colour my mind immediately took me back to those old laundry and household cleaner commercials that used to air on TV.
For example, does anyone old enough remember the Ajax commercials from the 50s? Yeah, it was "stronger than dirt". And Ajax was the white knight...
That was the 50s, but by the 70s Ajax was "like a white tornado"...
Meanwhile, who better to advertise a cleaning product than Betty "White". Here's her sales pitch from the 70s.
But it's the 50s that provide us with the real classics. Here's an ad with a tuneful slogan that's proved popular to this very day.
Somewhere along the way, though Mr. Clean took a um, ah, different approach to how he helped housewives. And to mix our marketing slogans, "You talk about a white tornado..."
I think we'll stop right there.
And that, folks, is my interpretation of "white". Sweep on by the bloggers at Theme Thursday and see how they interpreted this week's topic.
