40 years ago!

Today while reading yesterday’s paper, i came across an article on the success of a familial company. This company came into existence 40 years back when the founder tried to introduce he first locally made toothpaste. Blendax was then made known to the public. 4o years later, the brand is still going strong. When i read the article, i could not help remembering its advert. It was in the late 80s or early 90s. A woman and a man, one always on a bike. There was eye contact and then there was star coming out of the mouth of either the man or woman. The ad would end with an off-voice. Don’t remember it well. The strikingly white teeth of the protagonists impacted on me as i urged my parents to purchase the paste. I would vigorously brushed my teeth so that eventually they would turn brand white. Needless to say, nothing happened. At that age, was complete fool and gullible to everything adults would say. Like a tree would grow on the head if you happened to swallow a grain fruit. Souvenir souvenir!!! BTW, happy celebrations Mauritius!
