“52 weeks to find him” and an old beauty soap commercial….

Stumbled on this interesting “experiment” by Neenah Pickett. She’s taken the initiative to set up a personal website for dudes to come find her. Let’s see how it shapes up, hopefully it should open some not-normally-open doors.. Pray some of our sharp “Yahoo Yahoo” boys don’t spin her a smooth love story and bail with some of her money.. Or use her to gain a chance to sneak into America…

Can’t seem to remember how i managed to get into a discussion of soap commercials yesterday. Apparently, my flatmate had been talking with someone in Nigeria and they’d talked about the old Joy beauty soap advert where the Joy girl has a bath and takes a walk – making briefcases pop open, people overfil their glasses, doors slam shut on people’s hands – general mayhem i think…… Heard some Nigerian comedian has done a joke about being around such a girl.. If anyone has a link to a video I’d like to see it please… Have a great week y’all.. and hope the new year resoultions/ goals/ plans are making sense?….

    52 weeks huh? Interesting. I will have to check that site out.So, I went searching for the joy girl commercials but couldn't find one online. =( But there is a Nigerian commercial collection on Youtube that might include the Joy girl commercial though.Anyway, how body? Take care!

    I saw the 52weeks lady on TV being interviewed. I hope she's serious and its not a publicity stunt. Very soon she'll have her own Bachelorette reality show…goodluck to her!Joy advert? I remember that ad. I duno who'd want to use soap that will cause commotion and accidents.

    @SolomonSydelle: Thanks did a search on the Nigerian Commercials section on Youtube and came up with this . It contains the joy soap advert amongst others….
    @AbujaMaiden: Guess their spin was that bathing with the soap would make us so irresitible that mayhem would result… lol….

    Haven't been to the link. I remember the joy ads. Was it joy or lux that some guy fell into a pool too. And I remember one about a car having engine fatigue. I loved that one. Good ol' ads
