Gypsy Creams


Woman and Home / 1st January 1962

Wow, so much hilarity in one advert. Firstly, a brand of bog roll called ‘Bronco’, and secondly, the idea that men were scared to talk about toilet tissue. Really? Would it not be more accurate to state that they probably didn’t care that much? I have no idea how pleasant this product was, but from the picture, I wouldn’t mind speculating that ‘Bronco’ referred to the way you walked after using it. It gave me ‘fond’ memories of ‘Izal’

And with alarming speed, @zagrebista cures the man featured in the ad of his shyness. Heh!

Your suspicions are correct. Bronco was the sort of bumbaclart that could, at a push, be used as tracing paper. Or for musical purposes when wrapped around a comb. Woe betide anyone using it to wipe their aris, though.

“firm, clean-handling” – are men’s arses different, then?

I’m pretty sure this stuff was used at the primary school I went to in the 70s.

Bloody horrible stuff. I’m convinced it was the inspiration for the joke about someone suggesting a new brand of bogroll be called after John Wayne – “because it’s really hard, full of true grit and won’t take sh*t off anyone”
