I was starving tonight but didn’t go out eventually because I was waylaid by IM convos.
And so, I ‘made’ supper. You know what Heinz Spasgetti is like, so no need to tell y’all.
The great thing about a slogan was that it didn’t have to be accurate to be effective. Heinz never actually had ’57 Varieties’ of anything. The catch-phrase arose simply because H.J. Heinz, the company’s founder, decided he liked the sound of the number. Undeterred by considerations of verity, he had the slogan slapped on every one of his products he produced, which in 1896 was already far more than fifty-seven.
And then, and then, I buggerise around the net and see what I find? It doesn’t get any better than this. A videoclip of a TVC with Jeon Ji-Hyun in rugby AND cricket gear!
