Classic Clip Monday: Jean Nate, Jean Nate!

This commercial made me think that once you grew up, you just pretty much drenched yourself (and your bathroom) randomly in something called after-bath splash. And then went out and won the Kentucky Derby. This ad is such a classic, and I can still smell the stuff.

In 10th grade I went on an overnight field trip. I dumped out the contents of my mom's Jean Nate bottle and turned it into an impromptu flask. NOT A GOOD IDEA.

Part of my mom's bathroom ritual as long as I remember! I always saw that in her bathroom. I'm still not sure how "splash" works. It sounds messy!

I remember those Jean Nate commercials and always thought whoever came up with them must have been on drugs. Or perhaps Don Draper had had too many highballs...

Lots of ads from the 70s were about covering up stink- bath splash or Shower-to-Shower. Was the economy so bad that people didn't bathe regularly?
