1950s Animated Bactine TV Commercial Is Charming

Bactine Commercial
I’m really not sure what it is about this commercial that is captivating me so much. I guess it’s the Bactine jingle that is getting to me because I can’t quite get it out of my head!

“Goes the Bactine
Goes the Bad Sting
Feels So Cool and Good”

[Via] RRaquello

Though the closed captions tell a different tale:

“Arthur Martinez
Are afraid that faint field sold for and
the iris”

Hm, I can only see those captions when I wear these dark glasses I got from Roddy Piper.
