The jingle was catchy, & the graphics on the deodorant can really popped…
A Brilliant Piece of marketing from the 70’s that was only short lived…
Pictured in gallery is a 45RPM plastic flexible Record of the jingle they sang in the TV Ad. Also a Poster, Sticker and Underarm cloth patches that they wore in the commercial, you can see them in the Youtube clip below.
Piero von Arnim, was the man behind the rather garish costume and top hat, that was Uncle Sam, born in 1950 and passed in 2012.
Piero became so recognisable, some women mobbed & chased him from a beach in Melbourne. This quick fame made him leave Australia for a while to avoid the hooplah.
If any body has an old can of this aerosol deodorant, Shampoo or even a roll on, Im sure keen to purchase it!
Yep…Spray it again Sam!
