The chin game

When I was a kid, my brother and sisters and I used to play a game where one of us would put their head upside-down over the edge of a bed. Then they'd put a towel over the rest of their neck and shoulders. We'd put glasses on the chin, and the chin would be transformed into a large nose.

This little picture from an African Colgate package reminded me of that game. (The model's mouth is upside-down.)

To give credit where credit's due, the mouth was oriented correctly on the package. And my apologies for the lack of focus; it was a quick shot where I didn't take the needed time to make sure it was in correct focus.

I'm just fascinated that the advertisement gave you such a strong connection to a childhood game. That's some marketing!

Colgate here is SO fun! They have lotsa flavors that don't make it to the U.S.
