31 Days of Halloween – Day 13 – Shiny Shoes

I think I have saved the best of my series of witchy advertisements to last. This naughty witch from 1957 is showing a lot of skin considering that she is advertising boot polish. Apparently, the “neatest ‘Trick or treat'” is “a Microsheen Shine!” Personally, I think shoe-horning this near-naked witch into a boot polish advertisement is the “neatest Trick” of all. Don’t you agree? (Then again, we have already seen adverts for witchy engine oil, so maybe not).

If you can drag your eyes from the above, here is the advertising copy:

The goblins will get you if your shoes are dull and dingy. So be some pumpkin. Always step out with a Microsheen shine and all your friends will notice and compliment the big difference. That’s because Griffin Microsheen is so different from ordinary polishes … Treat your shoes to the slickest treat of all—start sparkling with Griffin Microsheen today!

  1. Uhhmm, you left out the fact Mr Pumpkin head is avidly chasing her! Perhaps he wants to show her his cucumber collection..

    She kinda looks like Paige O’Hara, the woman who played Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”.
