"The Network That Means Business" - The slogan of Networks 23, a
futuristic television station on the sci-fi series MAX HEADROOM/ABC/1987.
Network 23 aired subliminal commercials (compressed from 30 to 3 seconds) that
caused inactive viewers to explode. See alsoCOMMUNICATION DEVICES:
"The Network That Puts U Before The B.S." - Motto of the United
Broadcasting System UBS on the syndicated talk show satire AMERICA-2-NIGHT/ SYN/1978.
UBS was located in Alta Coma, California, known as the "unfinished furniture
capital of the world" and "Shoelace capitol of the world"
"Never Plead Guilty" - The legal advice of portly, irreverent barrister
Horace Rumpole (Leo McKern.), an old "Old Bailey hack," who drinks red plonk
(cheap wine), puffs on small cigars and recites poetry on the British legal
drama THE RUMPOLE OF THE BAILEY/THA/1977-92. The Rumpole TV episodes have been
shown in the US on the PBS series MYSTERY!
"Ninety-Nine And 44/100% Pure" - The proud advertising slogan of the
Ivory Soap products manufactured by Proctor and Gamble. The first line of the
first ad for Ivory Soap read: "The `ivory' is a laundry soap with all the fine
qualities of a choice toilet soap, and is 99 44/100% pure." An alternate slogan
was "It floats!" Years later, Proctor and Gamble was embarrassed to discover
that one of the females featured on a box of Ivory Snow was an X-rated movie
actress named Marilyn Chambers. The wholesome blond beauty, Marilyn Chambers had
posed for an advertising photograph - a young mother - for Procter & Gamble's
world-famous Ivory Soap. A few months later, Chambers made her dirty debut in
the now classic XXX-rated adult movie Behind the Green Door (1972). Of
course, P&G did their best to recall all the offending packaging that displayed
Chamber's photograph. To save themselves future embarrassment, Proctor & Gamble
reportedly added language to their modeling contracts to prevent such a thing
from ever happening again.
