How to advertise a comb!

comb

In my 30-something years of life, I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen an advert for a comb. It’s one of those every day items that surely needs no introduction yet the PRO-PHY-LAC-TIC comb above was obviously something special with its flexible teeth that won’t snap off!

The question is, would this ad get you to part with your 29 cents?
