A Darrin Stephens Production

Okay, this has to be one of the creepiest ads ever (click on it for a larger version):

Doesn't it feel like something that would've happened on Bewitched? I can just see Endora encapsulating these young welps, probably the twin grandsons of Gladys Kravitz. Darrin freaks out, "Saaammm, your mother has shrink wrapped the babies!", but then later hastily scrambles together the mishap into an advertising campaign for DuPont.

Darrin's boss, Larry Tate, is duly impressed, and the young whelps are confined to their air-tight prison. Darrin pecks Sam on the cheek, gives a sharp "Hah!" to Endora, and takes a small modicum of satisfaction in her scowl.

The unsuspecting mother of the twins would later settle out of court with DuPont for unspecified damages.

Just a little something to keep in mind the next time someone talks about how wonderful things were in the past.
