IMAGES: Ho Hang!


Ho Hang
...for that Ho Hum kind of day!


Here's to one of the oddest names for a fragrance, not to mention a
bizarre advertising campaign.

Is that Meg Ryan on the left?

Personally, I would totally have chosen this scent to wear to this local restaurant when it was still open. But alas, it has closed down, and my dreams of wearing Ho Hang to sip on cocktails there are all for naught.

What a terribly funny ad. Pretty sure I wouldn't buy it just because of it though.

Now if that had been a naked woman with two dressed men, I'm pretty sure there'd be murmurs of Ho!...of course, it was the 70's...

I can't stop staring at it. It's so WEIRD. What is gal left doing with her hands, anyway? Checking his prostate?

March - I think their re-enacting the well-known play "The Gynecology Girls"...this would be the scene where after a fancy dress party the women doctors decide to prove once and for all that a man can have a pap smear to the tune of the ever-popular Gershwin Melody "Anything Goes"...

oh wait, we were talking about fragrance...

Love the ad!
For more frag ads, see:

One of the Preferred Stock ads takes me back to middle school, when my friends and I tore those ads out of magazines and put them up on our walls. The Preferred Stock Guy was it on a stick to us 12 year olds.
I also adored and worshiped Linda Evangelista in the Charlie ads.

Anyway, the site above is quite fun to look at!
