The Mebucaine Throat Campaign

By: Ayman - Published: Apr 27, 2008 • References: adsoftheworld
Misplaced body parts always freak me out. It all started with Madonna's Bedtime Story music video which had her eye as a mouth and vice versa.

The new freaky campaign for Mebucaine places an open mouth on your throat/neck to illustrate how you can open your throat with their sore throat medicine. I guess it makes more sense than Madonna's eyes and mouth, but freaks me out nontheless.
