Classic Clip Monday: Enjoli

Oh, MAN, how memorable is this commercial, for better or worse.

I can bring home the bacon...
Fry it up in a pan...
And never never never let you forget YOU'RE a man...
'cause I'm a woman, Enjoli!

And then the lesser-known, but possibly EVEN MORE ANNOYING second verse

I can work till five o'clock
Come home and read your tickety-tock (what the hell? They really were reaching for a line here, right?)
And if it's lovin' you want I can kiss you and give you the shivvvvvvery bit (W. T. F.???)


I highly, highly admire the 1980s curled perfection of this woman's hair, however. And I realize now that Charles of the Ritz was trying to portray the 1980s superwoman, working a full shift, cooking meals, having teh sex, and reading to the kids, hopefully not in that order. Dream on, Enjoli Lady.
Do you remember this ad, or was it just me?

I was singing this all weekend! My husband thinks I'm nuts, but this will show him!

That ad has stayed in my brain since the 80's, like it or not.

I think it's "shivering fits?"

That whole song is now in my head for the week. Great.

Oh hell yes I remember it! LOL My little sister used to strut her stuff and mimic it for us. We thought she was a laugh riot. Just a few weeks ago I was singing it for my nephew (6), her little boy. He thought I was nuts but he was laughing about it.
