"The Gift That Keeps On Sucking" Sure, give your wife a vacuum for Christmas and see how long you stay married. I'd give it until Groundhog Day, max. Nothing like giving a gift that says, "Christmas Sucks!"
Cartoonist R.O. Blechman did this Christmas illustration for a greeting card. It was later the inspiration for the animated CBS Television Network 1966 Christmas "greeting". Click on the image below to view the video.
Blechman also did the award winning Alka Seltzer commercial in 1967 showing a man and his own stomach sitting opposite each other in chairs, having an argument moderated by their therapist in a voiceover. The stomach (voiced by Gene Wilder) accuses the man of purposely trying to irritate it. The man accuses his stomach of complaining too much about the foods he likes. The therapist suggests Alka-Seltzer, and further suggests that the two must take care of each other. The closing words are of the stomach saying to the man: "Well, I'll try - if you will".

In an effort to generate buzz for Meow Mix's foray into the wet food category, Meow Mix is opening a pop-up store on New York's Fifth Avenue that will offer food, toys, games, and Meow Mix merchandise with a menu centered on the new wet food line. Open this week, the company plans to reopen in different cities, depending on response, creating a traveling café.
