My Aunt was a heavy gum chewer. My Mother said it was because she was so addicted to smoking that she had to always keep her mouth busy with something. I didn’t really care about the reason. All I cared about is that she always had a stick of gum if you wanted one. At some point in the mid-eighties she switched to Carefree Sugarless Gum. I did not care for this decision because for some reason the sugar substitute gave me a headache. So the free gum train was over and knew who to blame…
I remember these commercial for the headache gum, mostly because Greg Louganis is in it. Watching it now, I am guessing the other people in this ad are also Olympians, but I do not know enough about the Olympics to even guess who they are.
