“The kids these days . . . just what with regards to hula hoops and rocket vessels. And cartridge pens! A pen should fill from a bottle!”
Be cool, fictional coot. I like the picture of things this advertising presents: large schoolers and students considering their writing instruments. If you click the advertising, you’ll get a bigger view with readable text. Let me show it. Here’s what Sally Cunningham, a junior at Birmingham (Michigan) high-school has got to state:“By holding Skrip cartridges within pocket or purse, it is possible to fill your Skripsert pen right during a course or exam! And rapidly!”Very useful, Sally! No embarrassing ink spills for you!
Mike Redman, Yale freshman, says:“Besides my Skripsert water fountain pen, I’m using a matching pencil back into school! All things considered, whoever heard about going right on through a year of solid trigonometry without an eraser?”Smart choice, Mike! Your passion — as well as your spontaneity — tend to be infectious!
Why is this ad specifically great is the look of Ann Marget Olsson (last title misspelled as Olson). Yes, Ann-Margret. Yes, Ann-Margret, which certainly went to Northwestern.
I’m therefore stuck on water fountain pencils that in the beginning i did son’t realize what must be immediately obvious to any reader of this advertisement: Sheaffer is attempting maintain the kids from b-ll-p-nts. Shh.
